While most women in the music game are constantly trying to outdo themselves with outlandish red carpet looks, Ciara lives by a less-is-more ethos. She says, "Sometimes you want to try so many different things and, when you do, it can be overwhelming. It's always when you don't try so hard that everything just falls into place."
So what does it take to achieve CiCi's less-is-more look?
To maintain her flawless complexion, Ciara starts with SkinCeuticals facewash, then dabs on a bit of Kevin Aucoin's cream foundation. Fashion Fair's concealer wheel covers up any imperfections, while M.A.C's Prep and Prime finishing powder seals the deal. For that sun-kissed glow, the dancing diva relies on Arbonne bronzer. Revlon mascara finishes the look with high-impact lashes. Ciara notes, "If I need to throw on a cute face, that would be my kit right there."
