Nude makeup is in now, which is quite interesting given that we spent the last couple of years creating dramatic makeup looks from intense facial contouring to intensely dark and dramatic eyes and lips. This year, Nude is wearing a new look: either you are bare-face with bold lips that express your personality or mood, or your lips are bare with minimal makeup. Drama is so last season.
For my two Nude looks, I deliberately used my natural brows without excessive grooming and neither did I wear a blush. For the eye makeup, I wore absolutely nothing in the first while a simple purple eye shadow from my Labelle palette was just enough. I didn’t even contour my eyes. Minimalism is the new trend.
For this look, I blended two of my favorite shades of dark lipsticks- plum. I absolutely love all shades of plum because plum is quite agreeable when it comes to wearing dark lips and it works well with any skin tone. For the look above, I combined Milani matte fearless lipstick with Revlon Plum lipstick to create a matte-cum-moisturizing lipstick that is neither dry nor glossy.
For this look, I used Labelle purple shadow from the eyeshadow palette, and for the lips, I used a combo of Labelle Nude lip cream and a dash of classic Mary Kay beach bronze lip gloss for added shine.
Both looks were pretty easy to create without contouring or blush. And both are great for day time looks as well.
