It's time to get naked! The hottest beauty trend in 2014 is all about being in the buff. Thanks to record-breaking sales and fresh faces on the spring catwalks, cosmetic brands at every price point are baring it all. TODAY Style Editor and author Bobbie Thomas shares the scoop.
Your never-ending search for the perfect natural lip shade may be ending. Urban Decay has extended their cult-favorite NAKED collection with nine Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses this month ($20, urbandecay.com). The neutral colors come hot on the heels of the brand's most recent and fastest selling NAKED3 eye shadow palette, which sold out overnight upon its debut. While Urban Decay may have kicked off the craze, the idea is now popping up at every price point, from e.l.f.'s Mini Palette in natural ($6, eyeslipsface.com) to MAC's Eye Shadow x15 neutral palettes ($100 maccosmetics.com).
With nail art becoming the norm, it feels refreshing to see more minimal manicures making appearances this year. Clinique's new limited edition Shades of Beige Nail Enamels offer up eight timely hues to compliment skin tones. Just like nude shoes can length the look of your legs, nude nails can help elongate the look of your digits ($12.50; clinique.com).
No make-up make-up
Also new for 2014 is Physicians Formula Nude Wear, a line of bronzers, blushes and powders touted as "no make-up" style make-up. The collection can help brighten your overall complexion and create a subtle bare-skinned effect ($12.95-14.95, physiciansformula.com).
Skin is in
There is now a BB cream for your entire body. The eagerly anticipated new BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream from Jergens is a fast-drying sheer formula that aims to offer five "beautifying benefits," including hydration, illumination, toning, firming and correction for your skin ($11.99; target.com).
