Makeup Look of the Day: The Purist

Kiara Kabakuru
The Purist utilizes products that reflect light naturally for a youthful, healthy, and modern look.  The face should look clean, moisturized, and well as fashion forward and fun.  The look is captured beautifully on model Kiara Kabakuru.

    I used liquid foundation, apricot colored liquid blush on cheeks, chin, and hairline, purple powder eyeshadow on the outer corners of the eyes, orangy-copper shadow on the browbones, black mascara, and a dark lip pencil followed by two different colored lipsticks (Lancome's Mauvette, and Revlon's Burgundy) to come up with a similar color to what Kiara is wearing. 


My favorite drugstore foundation is L'Oreal True Match makeup in Soft Ivory, which is the lightest shade from this line.  Of all the inexpensive foundations I've tried, this is simply the best.  It also lended itself nicely to this look to achieve a clean and pure base for which to build on.  If you're on a budget and can't afford expensive makeup counter foundation, you really ought to give True Match a try.  Bonus: they have a wide variety of shades within three different undertones: warm, neutral, and cool.
