If you are a regular reader you would be aware of my love for nude makeup looks. It always attracts me, you have seen my several makeup looks with different kinds of nude makeup. Nude makeup is always in trend and never goes off the charts. When you see anyone with nude makeup on, it seems easy and simple but the reality is that it’s a bit tricky. Sometimes if this makeup is not done expertly, your face looks wash off and colorless. The key of a perfect nude makeup look is choosing right products according to your skin tones and doing it carefully. Today I will tell you how to do nude makeup in 11 simple steps.
It’s very important to clean your face perfectly before makeup. Cleanse your face throughly then tone and moisturise it well. Use Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser, O3+ Hydrating Moisture Tonic , Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner and The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture-Protect Emulsion to prepare your face for makeup.
Now apply a concealer that is close to your natural skin colour. Use the concealer carefully to hide all imperfections, dark spots dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. You can use your finger or a concealer brush for dotting then blend gently with a small sponge till the area is coverd well. Use Mac Pro Longwear Concealer.
Apply a small amount of light coverage foundation that matches to your skin tone. Apply the foundation in dots with a foundation brush and then blends it with a blending sponge for the most even finish. Try Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation or Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation or Rouge Bunny Rouge Milk Aquarelle Foundation.
To set your foundation and to get a matte finish look, apply a translucent loose powder or a fine pressed powder with a large powder brush. Give a very light touch to save your skin from a cakey look. Try Mac Select Sheer Loose Powder or Maybelline NyFit Me Pressed Powder .
Apply an eyeshadow primer all over your eye lids gently with your ring finger. Blends the primer very lightly with patting it on your lids. Use NYX Professional Makeup Eye Shadow Base or Rouge Bunny Rouge Metamorphoses Mattifying Primer.
Apply a peraly beige color eye shadow all over the lids. Use an eyeshadow brush to spread it from inner to outer corners and crease evenly then blend it well. Apply a grey color eyeshadow on the cornor of your lids. Just a light touch and blends well. Use L’Oreal Paris Color Riche La Palette. To add some drama to your eyes, highlight your brow bone with a cream color eyeshadow.
Use a brow kit that is close to your brow hair shade and fill them from inner to outer edge of your brows. Use a brow brush to to blend it perfectly and give them natural effect. Use Maybelline Fashion Brow Cream Pencil.
No eye makeup is complete without eyeliner so now apply a brown or grey colored eyeliner. Create a thin line and make a thin wing to give some glamour to your face. Apply the liner just in one swipe. Make sure it should be natural. If you don’t like wing lines, just create a thin line along your lash line. You can apply a brown eye pencil on the bottom lashes from outer corners to the middle of the bottom lash lines.
Now curl your eye lashes with an eyelash curlur and apply 1-2 coats of black mascara on top and bottom lashes. Use Maybelline Hypercurl Volum’ Express Mascara.
