If in June we were so into bright and bold colorful eyeshadows, that doesn’t mean that we are forgetting one of our great love: nude make-up!
It fits summer weather perfectly, because if you are on the beach or wearing this perfect little black dress at a party, or if you’re up to another day of work, playing the natural look always works. We gathered some products with a great range of shades, because every skin color deserves to find the perfect match, to build a great nude look.
First: concealer. If it is not easy to find a covering, long lasting and matching concealer, we can always rely on Tarte’s Shape Tape contour concealer. It comes in 20 shades from fair to deep sin tone for all kind of undertone, either it is pink, yellow, neutral or peach.
A foundation needs to be reliable, have to stay fixed as long as possible and Laura Mercier’s Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation can do the job. It offers a 15 hours wear for a “flawless” result. With 20 different shades, most of us should be able to find a perfect match.
Next step to the no-make-up make-up look would be to use blush to color up your cheeks. Even if Nars’ most famous blush, Orgasm, is a world best seller and became an iconic color for blushes, the brand also have 32 other shades to enlighten all complexions and undertones.
Highlighter is a relatively new product that became a “most-have” for all make-up lovers. There is nothing like it to make your facial features glow and shine. It is one of Becca’s most renowned product and the brand developed it in more than 10 completely different shades, from gold, to bright pink, to mint and to chocolate and so on. Every skin can find a way to shine, night or day.
Nude eyeshadows are a good way to look chic easily and without making your make-up too obvious. A lot of palettes have been created to fit exactly to build that kind of look. bareMinerals have 3 different Gen Nude Eyeshadow: the Rose, the Neutral and the Copper palettes. All three have these light colors that you can deepen by going through the darkest shades of the lot.
To get nude lips, it is all about finding the lipstick that is going to be your lips but better. To make it look like you are not wearing anything but still make it different, take a shade slightly darker than your exact lip tint and voilà! If you don’t know where to start, take a look at Too Faced’s 10 shades of the Natural Nudes lipstick.
If we push the look one step further, we can also have the tip of our nails painted in natural and skin-like colors. On Essie’s website, the nude category contains 46 colors which seems to be enough for all of us to find the one true match. Besides, the product is good and long lasting.
The good thing is that you can take one product of all the above, and mix it with other type of look! A good base is always a perfect start; nude eyes are great to balance bright lipstick just as much as nude lips can offset a dark smoky eye look.
