We reveal the secrets of the perfect make-up in the style of “nude”.
“Nude” is a natural makeup that, unlike the popular contouring, does not make adjustments, but unobtrusively emphasizes what nature has awarded. It suits everyone – blondes, brunettes, brown-haired and red-haired – and looks equally advantageous both at the age of twenty and after forty. With apparent simplicity (a minimum of cosmetics — and “voila”) “makeup without makeup” is quite tricky: correctly placing accents, creating a natural image is not the easiest task. But if you master such a skill, a “nude” make-up at home will take you no more than 15-20 minutes.
5 secrets of the perfect makeup in the style of “nude”
Make-up in the style of “nude” looks best on tanned skin, so it is ideal to “wear” it in the summer season. In hot weather, light textures are especially pleasant to use, and for a minimum of decorative products, the skin will say a special “thank you”. However, this, of course, does not mean that in autumn, winter and spring such a make-up is prohibited.

Owners of fair skin and fans of translucent tones are advised to pay attention to light nude makeup in pink tones (we are looking for detailed instructions in the material “New pink: 5 trends of “pink” makeup that you will want to repeat”).
The basis of natural makeup is a fresh and healthy skin tone, and do not forget about the mandatory preparation of the skin for makeup, i.e. competent cleansing (we talked about this in detail in the material “From a clean face: how to properly cleanse the skin in summer”). The basic values of a “nude” cosmetic bag are a light tonal base (ideally with reflective particles) and concealer.

Make-up in the style of “nude” should look as natural as possible. Hence the main rule: no bright shades. There are no strict rules for choosing the range of shades of the nude palette, you just need to approach the choice individually: everyone has a different color type (skin color, eyes, hair), so there is no universal nude palette (add a tone and lipstick to it) that would suit everyone without exception. Some people prefer a warm color scheme to their face, while others, on the contrary, recommend a cold one. Someone should give preference to brown and bronze palette, others should prefer peach or pink.

The necessary minimum of a “nude” cosmetic bag is a tonal fluid, concealer, cream blush and shadows, eyebrow gel, brown eyeliner and brown mascara, satin lipstick of a light shade.
Another big mistake that can be made is graphics and dense textures. This means a taboo on clear arrows, vividly drawn “instagrammed” eyebrows and super-saturated lips. The darkest possible color allowed for “nude” is brown for mascara and elaboration of the interstitial contour (it, of course, needs to be carefully shaded).

There is an opinion that “nude” lipsticks are the most difficult. In fact, the main difficulty is not in its application (they are not only matte, but also satin), but in choosing the right shade. If you experience difficulties with the selection — for example, the lips “merge” with the tone of the face or seem bluish – contact a makeup artist who will help you find exactly your shade.

Moisturizing radiant textures create the most natural effect on the lips!
Simple rules will facilitate the application of light lipstick: firstly, put aside pencils (neither contour nor base coat is needed), and secondly, typing texture, use a brush — it will help make the layer on the lips as light as possible.
