Classic Camel

If you are fashion fatigued with this autumn’s clashing edit, when it comes to make-up, we have your back. It’s time to revisit camel – says Günel Salih.


Camel is the elegant, classic and never overdone choice. Cashmere soft make-up is sophisticated and timeless. The barely there perfection of a flawless complexion, clean eyes and naturally enhanced lips is divine.

Pioneers in the world of mineral make-up, bareMinerals have this classic look nailed.


Start with the latest bareMinerals foundation, BAREPRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation, £27.00, for a silky-smooth, lightweight formula that glides on effortlessly, with customisable natural looking matte coverage. This is the superstar foundation of the range with a long-lasting 12 hours of wear and with the added benefit of being good for the skin as it is made with 90% vitamins and minerals. This foundation comes with its own specially designed Core Coverage Brush featuring tightly packed synthetic fibres at its core to give your complexion an airbrushed, photo-ready, soft-matte finish.


Next, using the eyeshadow collection from the Suede Neutrals palette, £29.00, create a nude eye by simply brushing a light dusting of ‘Ivory’ eyeshadow all over the lower and upper lid for a natural, clean finish. For a more enhanced eye, smudge a soft line of smoky brown shadow close to the upper lash line. From the palette, try ‘Mahogany’ or ‘Saddle’. Now, apply lashings of mascara for a beautifully framed eye using Lash Domination in black, £19.00.


Enhance eyebrows with Frame & Define Brow Styler, £14.00, which comes in either a universal light or dark shade to suit all skin and hair colours. This will frame the eyes and give more definition to the face.


Keep lips pale, we don’t want them fighting for attention with the eyes. Try ‘Marvelous Moxie’ lipstick, £17.00, in, ‘Take Charge’, for a natural nude shade or, ‘Own It’, for a nude pink. If you prefer a nude coral try, ‘Dream Big’.


For a natural flush of colour, apply Pop of Passion Blush Balm, £20.00, to apple of cheeks to bring life to the face. This blusher can be applied with fingers or with a brush and comes in three shades, ‘Natural’, ‘Papaya’ and ‘Posy’. Finally, a light flourish of bronzer in ‘Skinny Dip’, £24.00, to temples, cheekbones and jawline to complete the look of camel perfect.


Intensify this look by applying the eyeshadow all over the lower half of the upper eyelid and continuing to shadow a line under and around the eye close to the lower lash line. Line the inner rim of the eye with ‘Round The Clock’ eye pencil, £15.00 in midnight or if you prefer a softer look with the grey ‘’
