Recreate the Look: Romantic Lead

This true lady prefers an understated elegance, with feminine touches that convey pure grace. In fact, at first glance, it may appear that she’s not wearing makeup at all. Although her look is clean, it’s beautifully — and naturally — enhanced with some classic makeup choices.

Romantic Lead


The romantic lead has a perfectly smooth complexion, a restrained coiffure and carefully groomed eyebrows. It focuses on an entirely pristine face, rather than spotlighting a specific feature with a pop of color or drama.

Who Should Recreate It

This iconic look is best for the girl who appreciates makeup, but wears it to accentuate her natural, simple beauty. She’s a bit shy, but she likes looking nice, and doesn’t mind letting her femininity lead the way.

How to Get the Look

Start by creating a matte complexion with a concealer like YSL Touche Éclat and a smoothing foundation, such as NYX Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation. Then, lightly apply a cream-to-powder peach-pink blush, like L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Peach Gold Lift.

Groom your brows, but leave them full and fill them in with Maybelline EyeStudio Brow Drama. Look for a pink-brown lipstick, like YSL Volupté Sheer Candy in 14. Polish off this romantic look with a classic, sheer pink nail polish like Essie Mademoiselle and a smooth chignon.
