Simply sexy makeup is subtle—the right touch of color applied for emphasis with a deft hand can make all the difference between "Simple Saturday" and "Simply Sexy Saturday".
The beauty of simply sexy makeup is that it can be "dressed" up or down. Mya's look at the ribbon cutting for the North Shore Animal League's new Mobile Rescue & Adoption Unit at The Algonquin Hotel on August 10, 2011 in New York City, is the picture of simply sexy that can take you from day to night without major adjustments.
Notice that Mya has flawless skin and minimal makeup, however her "beautiful browns" are punctuated with strong liner while her luscious lips take center stage with a punch of colorful gloss, making this makeup look ideal for a trek to the famer's market or dinner at a romantic restaurant.
Given that Mya is naturally gorgeous may make it seem that you can't look this glam with minimal makeup, but you can.
