The nude look was all the rage at fashion week for Spring Summer 2018. Tory Burch and Alexander Wang were all about the neutral, natural, nude makeup look.
This looks like it should be the easiest trend to pull off but actually, it can be tricky. The no-makeup makeup look actually requires foundation perfection. You need to get your skin looking pretty perfect to pull this look off without just looking like you made no effort. Red-rimmed eyes, dark circles under your eyes or redness around the nose and cheek area will pretty much ruin your monochromatic nude makeup look.
You may not have heard of a monochromatic makeup look before. The word refers to the colour scheme. A monochromatic colour scheme incorporates different tints and tones of the same colour. In this case different shades of nude.
We have picked out a few of our favourite nude collections for this spring that will work beautifully together to create a monochromatic nude makeup look. Always spend time getting your foundation base perfect. The look requires a natural finish on your foundation with just enough coverage to give you an even skin tone. Then, starting with the eyes, add just a touch of nude eyeshadow with a natural liner. A soft brown kohl pencil will work perfectly to keep the look soft. A beautiful nude lip and of course, nude nails to match. Who doesn't love nude on their nails?
