The Ultimate Nude Makeup TutorialMay 17, 2021
Lay Down Your Base
Start by evening out your complexion with a lightweight yet full-coverage CC cream like the Dermablend Continuous Correction CC Cream SPF 50+. Give your skin a luminous look and your CC cream even more staying power with a dusting of the Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Glow Setting Powder on top. To keep the monochromatic look from appearing flat, apply a touch of blush on the apples of the cheeks.
Using an eyeshadow brush, dust a beige-colored shadow, like Laredo from the Urban Decay Naked Wild West Eyeshadow Palette, all over the lids, going from the inner corners to the outer corners and into the crease.
For a low-maintenance, barely there look, use a medium-brown eye pencil like the Maybelline New York Tattoo Studio Eye Pencil in Smooth Walnut to create a thin line of color on the upper lash line. Repeat this on the bottom lashes, but focus on the outer corners and sweep it into the middle of your bottom lash line.
If you’re planning on wearing the look from day to night, use a black liquid liner on your upper lash line instead. Try the L'Oréal Paris Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner for a budge-proof finish.
Swipe on Mascara
Curl lashes with an eyelash curler, then sweep two to three coats of a mascara like Lancôme Lash Idole. It gives lashes a fluttery, defined effect that’s perfect for a low-key look.
Finish With Lipstick
Line lips with a flesh-toned, nude lip liner and follow up with a neutral liquid lipstick for a long-lasting finish. We love the NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie XXL Matte Liquid Lipstick because it comes in 24 shades (many of which are complexion-enhancing nudes) and won’t transfer onto your mask.
