THE NUDE LOOK

THE NUDE LOOK

As we all know this trend has become very popular in the last few years.  Yes, you guessed it, it's the nude look that everyone has been doing lately. You can see a lot of celebrities rocking the nude make up look and of course we ''regular'' girls like it too.
So the question is how can you achieve a  good nude make up look ?
It's not that hard and I'm going to break it to you in a few steps.

Complexion
You want your skin to look radiant and glowing, so that means not too much powder on top of your foundation. Don't  go overboard with your foundation, nobody likes a masked face. Meaning, you want your skin to look flawles but not over done. If you have some problem areas that you want to cover a bit more like acne or you have issues with skin pigmenation use a concealer to cover those ares.


For foundation you could use: Nars Sheer Glow, Mac Face and Body, Revlon Colorstay( my personal favorite), Loreal's  Nude eau de teint or you can go lighter and use some bb creams or even cc creams.



For giving your face some color and dimension their are various blushes and bronzers.
You can opt for a pinky or a peachy blush.  You can choose between  a powder or a cream blush.
Some great options are : Nars Orgasam,Nars Amour,  Milani blush in Loumionus,  NYX in Peach, Stila Convertable in Petunia (cream blush), Bourjois in 34 Rose D'or or 16 Rose coup de foudre.


There are a lot  of bronzers to choose as well, but for the face it would be best if you would use a matt bronzer. Like Too Faced Chocolate soleil, Catrice matt bronzing powder, CK One Color Cream + Powder Bronzer Duo, Guerlain Terracota .


 

Eyes and lips

For the eyes  you can use a light champagne color, beige or a light brown eyeshadow.Urban Decay is famous for their Naked palettes,but if you wont something a bit cheaper Wet N' Wild has some great options too.
 
A little bit of eyeliner wont hurt. If you don't wont a black liner use a brown one instead.


For framing your brows  you can use a pencil or a powder to fill them in.
Anastasia Beverly Hills has even eyebrow pomades and gels for filling in your eyebrows.


To enhance your natural lashes you have a lot of mascaras to choose acording to your preferences.
It depends if you want more volume or length.
L'oreal has a great selection of mascaras and my favorite is the Mega Volume Collagene 24h.
Frome other drugstore brands Maybelline has also a lot to offer and I'm sure you have heard about their Colossal range.
But if you want a higher priced mascara, YSL or Lancome should fulfill your needs.


And my favorite part about the nude look are the lips. You can line them with a lip liner, use a lipstick or simply just a lip gloss. From affordable to higher priced you have a big selection of nude shades.
L'oreal, Maybelline, Essence,NYX, Mac or any other brand has probably a shade for you in their collection.


Here are some pictures from our celebs sporting the nude look. Of course among them is the makeup queen Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, for us Gossip Girl fans Leighton Meester and the beautiful Scandal star Kerry Washington.
And if you follow some YouTube beauty gurus than you probably have veard about Michelle Phan, Carly Bybel, Chloe Morello, Marianna Hewitt and others.

In Kerry Washingtons picture you can see what products has her make up artist used on her.


 

And for my last tip, I wanted to say that along all the make up use your smile for the best accessory.
Xoxo, Bernarda
