Jeanius Beauty

From dresses to shirts to flares, it’s a denim revolution with this season’s flashback to the ‘70s. 

Inspiring this dungaree following is an elite pack of blue jean babies consisting of British ‘It’ girl Alexa Chung, streetstyle celebrity Olivia Palermo, and model of the moment Cara Delevingne all donning their denim day and night. These fashion favourites often change up their looks however all have a natural inclination to fresh faced beauty looks with flawless skin, groomed brows, and pink-pinched cheeks and lips.

When dressing in denim take the lead from our ‘jeanius beauties’ and keep it clean. Here's how to get their beauty looks. 

It’s all about the base 
Getting the base right is key to achieving glowing nude make-up. Prep your skin by massaging in serum or face oil in a circular motion and then removing it with a warm face cloth. Cleanse your skin, gently exfoliate and pat dry. Apply a hydrating moisturiser and eye cream or gel, and make sure it has dried before trying to start adding coverage. We recommend: Shu Uemera High Performance Cleansing Oil, Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion.

Clever cover 
Start with a primer or BB cream to help your foundation last. You want to achieve an even matte coverage so apply a lightweight hydrating foundation the same colour as your skin. Take away excess shine and minimise pores by investing in a face powder. We recommend: Dermalogica Age Smart PrimerMAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation.

Get cheeky 
Choose warm, plum, earthy tones in blushes and creams to delicately shape the cheeks but still keep it matte. Focus on contouring your cheekbones to give a hint of romantic allure.  We recommend: Guerlain Terracotta Light Bronzing Powder.

Graphic eyes 
Create a natural defined look with cream based primers followed by eye shadows in nude, caramel, bronze or gold. Separate your lashes with a clear mascara first, then apply black to define. Create a slight cat eye with a pen liner or thick black pencil. We recommend: Napoleon Perdis Nude U Palette.

Brow basics 
To look natural you need groomed brows. Brush brow hairs in their natural direction and apply a gel to set them if needed. Use an eyebrow pencil or powder in your natural colour to fill in any gaps. We recommend: Bobbi Brown Brow Kit.

Lip service 
Lips can either be in nude tones or colour pop. Choose a matte and creamy lipstick in beige and pink shades, and apply clear gloss to the centre of your lip to create volume, or powder for a more muted appeal. Or opt for red and berry tones for a night out on the town. We recommend: Tom Ford Lip Color.

Finishing touches 
Think clean, perfectly manicured hands and feet with a hint of clear gloss, light pink or flesh coloured polish. Finally, apply a clean and crisp scent to complete the look. This can be a fragrance, body oil or cream. We recommend: Thierry Mugler Angel Shooting Star Eau de Parfum.
