Even though it seems like everyone is currently obsessed with bright eyeshadow palettes and graphic looks, nude makeup will never go out of style. It’s flattering, works for any occasion and can be as toned-down or amped-up as you’re in the mood for. Whether you want to take a break from the bold aesthetic or refresh your go-to neutral look now that you’re going out more, keep reading for a five-step nude makeup tutorial we created with the help of pro makeup artist Sadhvi Babu.

  • STEP 3:

    Apply Eyeliner

    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.

  • STEP 4:

    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.

  • STEP 5:

    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.
