Throwback Thursday: Minimal Effort
The Model: Tully Jensen
The Moment: Naturally beautiful
The Motivation: Red-carpet watchers might have noticed an increasing move toward more natural beauty looks of late (see both the Oscars and the Met Ball); even the backstage trenches seem to be favoring a similar aesthetic, particularly with nails, which have been overwhelmingly nude for the past few seasons. But beauty is cyclical, as we realize more and more, and a fresh face with minimal manicuring has gotten plenty of play before. Behold, a 1989 image of Tully Jensen, sans blush and sans brow grooming, embracing a neutral mouth and a wee bit of chocolaty brown eye pencil beneath her lower lash line. From her flawless (and contour-less) face to her effortlessly tousled hair, this is a look we find ourselves gravitating toward more and more as the days get longer—and warmer—and an unfussy regimen becomes evermore appealing. You too?
