Nude makeup is all the rage, but we’re not going to lie – its a hard one to master. As much as we love rocking a bright red lip, sometimes being so bold can be tiring, and we long for a stripped back, natural makeup look. The trouble is, wearing the nude makeup look can be just as tricky (if not trickier) than wearing bright hues.
Picking the right shade, textures and finishes of nude makeup can be the secret to prevent that ‘washed-out’, color-less look. Matte or glossy, beige or browns- we’ve heard all your concerns. To nail that barely-there beauty look yourself, we’ve rounded up some top tips for wearing those dressed-down shades.
1. Find Your Base Shade
A nude make-up look should be polished and pretty, but not because you have gone overboard with your foundation and powder. Find a shade of foundation which compliments your complexion – it should be the closet match to your natural skin color, adding a sheer, healthy glow.
