Nude Makeup Tips: How to Wear the Nude Trend

using nude makeupNude makeup is trending right now, but it is something that is always in because you cannot go wrong by looking natural. The key is to let your natural beauty shine through while simply accenting it with nude makeup. You will not be adding color, but some dimension to your face. To make this look even better, it is very low maintenance.

Getting the Right Tone

You need to really look at your skin and assess the color. When going for the nude look it is imperative to get a foundation that matches your skin tone exactly. Regardless of your skin tone you want to avoid beige. Go for a true nude that simply helps to even out your skin tone and give you a balanced canvas to work from.

Adding Dimension

This is where choosing the right blush and eyeshadow comes in. A champagne-colored blush with a peachiness in the light is a good choice. This will be neutral, but will give you just enough color to highlight your cheekbones without adding major color.

With your eyeshadow, choose a shimmery champagne color. This will accent your eyes well without adding harsh color. When choosing champagne colors you want to avoid opaque colors because this can be unflattering. You want to avoid this because it can make you look chalky.

Tinted Moisturizer

This is a good way to kill two birds with one stone and if your skin is in good shape you would not even need a foundation. The moisturizer with a little tint would be enough to even out your skin without adding extra makeup to it. If you have regular foundation and regular moisturizer you can mix these together to create a softer, lighter foundation.

Use Primer

You should prime your skin – including your eyelids – so that your much lighter makeup will pop more and give you a nicer glow. This will also help to avoid dark spots and discoloration. Go with a clear primer on your face so that it does not add more color once your foundation it put on. On your eyes you can go with a nude color to help lighten lids in preparation for your eyeshadow.

Lip Color

You do not want your lips to blend in with the rest of your skin, but you do not want a huge pop either. A very light, soft pink that is not shimmery is a good choice. You can also go for a nude, but with pink undertones and a little shimmer. These two options will help to give your lips just a hint of color so that they do not blend into your face.


There are certain areas on your face where you want to add a subtly, shimmery highlight to accent the bone structure of your face. You want to apply this to your cheekbones, brow bone and the center of your nose. Avoid going the full length of your nose and only do the top half to avoid making your nose look larger than it is.
