Master the Art of Nude Makeup for the Festive Season  


1. Primer

7. Nude Lips

First up, we have a primer. Think of this as your makeup's best supporter as it is the base that your makeup holds on to all day long. Go with something like the Lakmē Absolute Skin Dew Primer as it has skin-friendly ingredients that easily soothe blemishes, pimples and doesn’t clog your pores. Apply a thin layer all over your face to smoothen out your skin and blurs imperfections. 


2. Foundation

7. Nude Lips

Now, onto the foundation. Remember, you don’t want to sweat out your makeup and end up with a patchy base by night. But we’ve got you on that front. The Lakmē Facelift Foundation Stick is a game-changer. It glides on like a dream, giving you just the right amount of coverage without feeling heavy. Plus, it's so easy to blend so say hello to a natural finish that is the most important key for nude makeup looks. 


3. Concealer

7. Nude Lips

Next, let’s talk concealer. To be honest, this is optional while doing nude makeup and only needed if you have heavy dark circles or stubborn blemishes that show up even after foundation. In this case, Lakmē Absolute Instant Airbrush Concealer Pen is just what you need. This little gem works wonders in brightening up those under-eye areas and hiding any pesky blemishes. It's like a magic wand for your face, making any imperfections disappear in a flash! Just take it and dot on all over the dark spots and under your eyes. Remember, less is more. Then simply use your finger or a beauty blender and blend, blend, blend. 


4. Finishing Powder

7. Nude Lips

Ever wondered how people avoid a greasy look and get that perfect, Instagram matte finish? Setting your base is the secret ingredient. After you are happy with your base, it's time for this finishing touch with the Lakmē Absolute Loose Finishing Powder. This lightweight powder sets your makeup in place while giving your skin a soft-focus finish. It's what you need to prevent oiliness, keeping your makeup looking fresh all day long. 


5. Blush

7. Nude Lips

Now, let's add a pop of colour to those cheeks with the Lakmē Facelift MultiSlayer Blush Stick. This handy stick makes application a breeze, giving your cheeks a natural flush of colour that screams a healthy glow. Understated but enhancing your natural beauty with a touch of colour is the main goal of nude makeup looks. You can swipe it on your eyes as well if you are not one for nude eye makeup. 


6. Eye Makeup

7. Nude Lips

But what does a nude eye makeup include? It is technically as minimal as possible. For the eyes, we're keeping it simple yet stunning with the Lakmē Eyeconic Kajal. To switch it up, use the brown shade to draw on a soft, subtle wing. This kajal is super pigmented and glides on effortlessly, instantly defining your eyes and adding a touch of drama. 

Finish off those lashes with the Lakmē Lash Boost Extreme Mascara. It lifts, curls, and volumizes your lashes, giving you that wide-eyed look that's oh-so-irresistible. Simply drag them along your lashes in a zig-zag motion to avoid clumpy, spidery lashes. And remember, this a nude makeup look, so one coat is more than enough. 


7. Nude Lips

7. Nude Lips

And finally, to finish off, we have the Lakmē Xtraordin-airy Lip Mousse in ‘Blush Nude’. It is just dark enough that it won’t wash you out and has a hint of pink, perfect for all undertones. The mousse-like texture feels ultra-light on your lips while still being super pigmented so you don’t have to worry about your naturally two-toned lips peeking through. 

FAQs on Nude Makeup 

Q1. How to do smokey nude eye makeup? 

A simple nude eye makeup includes lining your eyes with brown or black gel pencil, and adding mascara while a nude-shade eyeshadow is optional. But if you want to make it smokey, don’t take a dark or black shade. If your base is a light orange or taupe, take a slightly darker shade like rust or brown. Apply it in a horizontal ‘V’ shape on the outer corner of your eye and simply blend it in. 

Q2. How to add glitter to nude makeup looks? 

Of course, if you are celebrating, you may want to add a touch of shine without going overboard. There are many ways to do this. Lightly brush on some highlighter on your cheekbones or on your brow bone. Or you can wear a glossy lipstick, that should do the trick. Or you can add some loose glitter to the centre of your eyelid, but remember, don’t put too much on. 

Q3. Can I use dark lipstick with nude makeup? 

Yes, you can absolutely pair a dark lipstick with nude makeup for a striking contrast. Just ensure the rest of your makeup remains subtle to let the bold lip colour stand out. 

So there you have it, this is perfect as an Eid makeup look, Gudi Padwa or for any other festival you may be celebrating this summer of 2024.
