Today, we are going to help you achieve that fresh-faced glow without feeling like you're wearing a ton of makeup. We're talking about soft, neutral tones that complement your skin tone and features, making you feel confident and beautiful in your own skin. From a light foundation or tinted moisturizer to enhance your complexion to a hint of blush for a healthy flush, nude makeup looks are all about enhancing what you've got. 


Start with a Clean Canvas

Base preparation and pre-makeup skincare is as equally important as the makeup steps. Start with a facial cleanse to get your skin ready for all your makeup products. Follow up with a lightweight moisturizer to hydrate your skin and create a smooth base for makeup application. 

For skin priming, smooth on a thin layer of primer to blur out any imperfections, minimize the appearance of pores and help your makeup last longer throughout the day. 


Ace Your Base

FAQs about Nude Makeup Looks

Opt for foundation or BB creams that provides natural coverage. Make sure it matches your skin tone perfectly for a natural look. If you are still at the foundation selection stage, try the Lakmē Facelift Foundation Stick which is pretty quick and easy to use. Just swipe it over your forehead, cheeks and jaw. It blends super easily to give you an even but lightweight finish. 

Dab a small amount of concealer on any blemishes or dark circles, gently blending it into your skin for seamless coverage without looking cakey. Forget about the TikTok methods or Instagram hacks, and just use it as spot concealing if you need it, otherwise forego concealer if you don’t have blemishes. 


Neutral Tones on Eyes

FAQs about Nude Makeup Looks

Sweep a neutral eyeshadow like light brown or beige across your eyelids, focusing on shades that complement your skin tone for nude eye makeup. 

Line your upper lash line with a thin stroke of a waterproof brown eyeliner like the Lakmē Eyeconic Kajal - Classic Brown to add a subtle eyeliner definition without overpowering the look. Finish off with a coat of mascara to lift and lengthen your lashes. It's about embracing your natural beauty while still feeling put together and polished


Subtle Cheek Definition

FAQs about Nude Makeup Looks

To add some dimension to your face, go in with a slightly dark shade of Lakmē Facelift MultiSlayer Contour Stick on the sides of your temples, cheeks and jaw. Blend it out to accentuate your natural features. This is optional but you can also lightly dust some highlighter onto the high points of your face for subtle highlighting. 

Next, go in with the Lakmē Absolute Sheer Cheek Mousse on your cheeks and the bridge of your nose for hint of colour. 


Nude Lips Finish

FAQs about Nude Makeup Looks

Finally, lets get to nude lipstick application. Start by lip lining with a nude lip liner that matches your natural lip colour to define for shape definition and prevent lipstick from feathering. 

Swipe on a matte nude lipstick and you are done. If you love your classic bullet lipsticks, try a matte one like the Lakmē Absolute Beyond Matte Lip - Nude Nectar for its velvety texture. If liquid lipsticks are your thing, Lakmē Absolute Sheer Lip Mousse - Chocolate Temptation is for you. It is super moisturising and weighless on your lips so you don’t have to worry about cracked or cakey lips. 

If you feel like it is too much, a tinted balm for a touch of colour and hydration will complete your everyday nude makeup looks with a soft and polished finish. Whether you're running errands, heading to work, or meeting up with friends, this look has got you ready for all occasions.

Q1. What are the nude makeup trends for 2024? 

While the basics of nude makeup are the same – to opt for a no-makeup look, we do have the freedom to mess up around with some elements. So, with that in mind, some of the nude makeup trends for 2024 are brushed-out brows, glossy lips, subtle brown winged eyeliner, sunburnt blush, and dewy highlighter. 

Q2. How to find nude shades for your skin tone? 

For the eyes, stick to a neutral beige or taupe shade as the base followed by a slightly darker brown shade for the crease. For the lips, make sure it is one shade darker than your skin tone so you don’t get washed out. Most Indians have a warm undertone, so try nude lipsticks that have a reddish tinge; for a cold undertone, go with pinkish or mauve shades. 

Q3. What is bridal nude makeup? 

For bridal nude makeup, what makes it stand out from traditional makeup is the light eye makeup and nude lips. However, you can still stick to a subtle glitter like the gold and champagne shades of Lakmē Absolute Explore Eye Paint for your eyes. Similarly, for the lips, the ‘Blush Mauve’ or ‘Pink Dream’ of Lakmē Glitterati Collection Shine Lipstick gives a slight shine and a dewy finish that stays on brand for the bridal nude makeup theme.
