Thinking of going nude…. With your make up that is. Here are some tips to help you make the most of it. The nude makeup look is ideal for women that don’t mind showcasing their natural beautiful features without using a substantial amount of foundation or bronzer. While some may consider this look ‘bland or muted‘, if you’ve applied the right kind of products and on the right places, you can extenuate your already features effortlessly! Here are a few quick to follow tips to get the most of your new “nude” look.

Nude Makeup Tips:

1. Less is More – This is the first rule of the nude makeup look. You will have to unlearn whatever you’ve learned about applying foundations and concealers. You should not look caked-up while trying to look natural. Use foundation carefully and know when to stop!

2. Try to Look as Natural as Possible – This should be your main focus. Choose the shades that look natural on you. If you have pale skin, opt for pink or peachy colours and if you have olive undertones, opt for pale beige or cream colours. Lip colour should also look natural. Instead of matte lipstick, apply a little gloss on your lips directly.

3. Invest in Grooming Sessions – Since you are not allowed to use a lot of makeup in order to hide your flaws, you have got to invest a little on grooming. The best time to carry this look is after getting a facial or after giving your skin a proper cleansing/toning ritual. You need to take care of your lips as well, exfoliate them properly.

4. The Magic Mascara – You don’t really need oodles of eye shadows and liners when you can look fabulous by putting a little mascara alone. We all know how wonderfully mascara works on our eyes. Just trust your old buddy and give it a chance. If you want, you can add false lashes or a stroke of an eye pencil to give a glamorous twist to your final look.

5. Blush – You can use blush, but make sure it compliments your skin tone. Do not opt for shades that look contrasting and also, keep a check on the amount of blush being used. Powder based blushes are usually preferred for the nude look.

6. Lip – There are so many new nude lipsticks, lip glosses now available on the market. Pick the one from your favorite brand and apply it precisely with a lip brush.

What Works Best:

The most amazing thing about makeup is that you can experiment all the time. Although it’s believe that the above-mentioned rules generally apply to the nude look, you can break them to create your own personal style statement. Here’s to your new “nude” look.
