  1. i like this look! so natural & great for spring! phyllis, do you have any tips for getting a dewy skin finish? when i apply sunscreen, i can’t seem to apply bb cream smoothly…how can i fix this?

  2. Wow! How do they get their eyelashes to seperate and pop like that?

  3. I love this look! I wish I could copy it. Maybe with a bit more eyeshadow definition..

  4. Christine,

    As for your sunscreen and bb cream, sometimes not all products are compatible with one another. Is your bb cream balling up after your sunscreen?

  5. Jenn,

    To get that effect, you will need an eyelash curler, lengthening mascara and a lash comb.

  6. Thanks for answering Phyllis! Yup, when i used it, i get these balls of residue forming…& it’s a pain in the butt to try to remove. I guess this means i need to either use a diff bb cream or sunscreen?

  7. Yes Christine, I’d try the bb cream with a different sunscreen underneath.

  8. This is such a gorgeous look! I wish I could do the au naturale look as great as these models. The look is perfection!
