The “Naked” Truth About Beauty!
 As we head into Spring, some of your favorite beauty brands are taking the expression “less is MORE” literally and putting it to the test! My March news assignment from the KTLA Morning News Desk was to research the “Naked” trend in cosmetics, skin care and fragrance and discovered the “bare” facts about having a fresh faced, natural glow. To capture this look keep in mind a couple thoughts…
Naked beauty is about…
  • Adding color to your face, fragrance to your body and skin care ingredients to your complexion that give you the “I just rolled out of bed looking this fabulous” feel.
  • It’s meant to make your girlfriend’s a little jealous wondering “what’s her secret? Did she get more sleep!?”
  • Think: “Red Lipstick” or “Blue Eye Shadow” will never going to be part of this beauty story…It’s more about subtle shades
  • It’s “PG” products with a little poke at an “X-rated” vibe, but all in good fun!” 
EASY D.I.Y. TIP: Classic tip to looking hotter and better naked is to change out the light bulbs in your bedroom and opt for peach and amber bulbs instead of classic white. This shade of light is way more flattering to your body.
