5 Ways To Achieve The Nude Makeup Look

Written by Chandni GhoshSep 16, 2020
If the Kylie Jenners and Kim K’s of the world are trying to tell us something, it is that nude makeup is still the rage. A tad different from the no makeup look, this one actually uses varied shades of nude to achieve the given look. While in the no makeup look, one relies on feathery light foundation and just a hint of glow or pale lips, in the nude makeup look, you set your base, mascara and even liner but you play around with pale pinks, beiges, caramel shades to lend colour to your face yet make it seem seamless. Want to know what you ought to have in your vanity kit to achieve this look? Here’s a roundup...

  • Always rely on a nudish-pink blush

    We all love our bright pinks and oranges but there’s no better glow than a nudish pink toned blush. So once you’re through with your base, just apply a hint of any blush in this shade to add that subtle colour to your face. If you ask us, our favourite is the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick in Pink that has the perfect pinks along with a blush toned shade that works wonders for nude makeup.

  • Get that taupe on your eyes

    Unlike the no makeup look that largely depends on sheer coverage and pale lips and a hint of blush, nude makeup is all about using nude shades, one of which is taupe. Taupe is anywhere between greyish brown and even brownish grey. A perfect shade of nude, this looks gorgeous on the eyes. We suggest you rely on the Lakmé Absolute Illuminate Eye Shadow Palette in Gold that has just the right kinda brown or taupe that works perfectly for nude makeup.

  • Use a natural shade on your lips

    Use a nude that you like—be it brown, pale pink or even a coffee toned colour. You can use a matte lipstick and then go for a gloss or even use a creamy lip colour. If you want a matte lipstick, we suggest going with the Lakmé Enrich Matte Lip Crayon in Cinnamon but if you’re looking for a deeply hydrating lipstick, we suggest relying on the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Buttery Caramel.

  • Line your lips nude

    Since most of us have naturally nude lips, lining our lips with a nude shade like a light pink will help enhance our pout. We suggest going in with the Lakmé 9 to 5 Lip Liner in Beige Pink. Use this before applying a similar toned lipstick.

  • Finish off with a champagne coloured highlighter

    What’s nude makeup without a hint of highlighter? Given that highlighters come in a range of nudes, you ought to try them out for this look. We suggest trying out the Lakmé Absolute Moonlit Highlighter. Use a fan brush to apply it on the high points of your face so that this nude makeup is easily visible when light hits your face.
