You’ve probably already heard about “no makeup-makeup”, a natural makeup style that has become a known favourite for makeup artists, not just on the runways but also on red carpets. We have been spotting a lot of celebrities rocking natural makeup looks recently.

So, what are the secrets for nailing that perfect nude look? We’ll detail the most important tips for you below.

The perfect base
To achieve the best natural makeup look you can get, you need to have the perfect skin. To do this, you need a beauty routine that will help you achieve flawless skin. Stick to a routine that you will follow religiously and watch how your skin pops. Look for skincare products that will help cover enlarged pores, redness, spots and all those tiny “flaws” you usually conceal with makeup.

Conceal the flaws
Skincare helps, but perfect skin can’t miraculously be achieved in a day. But concealers come pretty close to doing that, covering up imperfections easily. Pinpoint your flaws and choose the right concealer for each one: dry concealer for pimples, orange concealer for undereye circles, green for redness, glowing to light up your face.

(L-R) Giorgio Armani cream compact concealer in #2, Bobbi Brown retouching wand in deep, Jane Iredale active light under-eye concealer in 02, tarte Double duty beauty shape tape in light medium, Guerlain multi-perfecting concealer in 03 medium warm, Becca aqua luminous perfecting concealer in warm honey, Tom Ford waterproof foundation/concealer in 4.0 fawn.

Brown mascara
As much as we’d hate to give up mascara for the natural look, black mascara can ruin it by making it look artificial and dramatic. Instead, go for a volumnising brown mascara, a subtle colour for the no makeup-makeup. Be generous, but don’t apply more than two coats.

Nude eyes
For a natural makeup, the trick is to make it look like you’re not wearing any eyeshadow. This is where nude eyeshadow becomes the real MVP. Luckily, we’re spoilt for choice in this aspect. Shimmering and matte eyeshadows can be used interchangeably, depending on what you’d like.

Natural lips
Can you guess the best colour for your lips? Yours! For the ultimate natural makeup look, choose nude and matte lipsticks, pretending we’re not using any product on our lips!
