The no-makeup, barely-there look has been a mainstay on the runways especially as soon as the Spring/Summer collections come out. It is a look that resonates with most women because of its effortless and youthful appeal.

When the all-natural makeup trend first caught on fire, contours of the face were the focus. A color palette of pink and peach were the prescribed hues for creating the natural flush. Eye correctors, curled lashes and a very subtle liner opened up the eyes for the pared down look. Lips were kept nude and topped with polish.

There have been modifications to the big makeup trend since it debuted in 2015. Instead of creating contours, illuminating or strobing helps to define facial features. Makeup experts insist that the only way to pull off this look is to achieve flawless, glowing skin. This means minimum coverage applied and blended only on problem areas. Instead of layers upon layers of foundation and powder, a tinted moisturizer and eye corrector should suffice to even out skin tone. Eyes are framed by groomed brows and brushed up with tinted gel mascara.

The fashion shows during New York Fashion Week, showed new ways of wearing the au natural look. Backstage at Alexander Wang, 3.1 Philip Lim and Delpozo, moisturized skin, a subtle blush and slightly tinted lips were makeup looks applied onto models to suit a variety of style sensibilities ranging from downtown to resort.

Here are quick and easy ways to achieve the modern pared-down looks at New York Fashion Week:
