GO NUDE…Wear Natural to the Modern Glamour by Kemi Shona

nude1 The natural look.It looks so naturally prettier than caked on make up.We all want to show off that natural beauty.so I ll suggest you look better naked...lol ok,this is what I mean....Somewhere between freshly scrubbed and totally done up is a face that lets you look just like you... but better! "A nude look is polished and pretty and because you're simply enhancing your tone, it'll never appear as if you tried too hard. The Nude is basically effortless.There are plenty of places to go wrong though, and sometimes trying to look like you aren’t wearing make up requires even more make up! Remember that the nude look is luscious and fluttery eyes, rather than smoky eyes and heavy foundation look. But nude should not mean one thing to all people.its a choice.some may want an accentuated eyes and nude lips,some,a nude eyes and accentuated lips,while some prefer to go out all nude.whatever you go for,picking fleshy colors that complements your skin tone will prevent you from looking washed-out. So here are my tips for getting it right;It can be so easy to slip into routine when you are applying make up.its very important to know your color and Test it first...Test any new make up, preferably before you buy it, but definitely before you wear it!You’d be surprised how many people choose a colour that looks wrong, and gives them a ghostly, washed out,look. For fair skin:honey and taupe. For medium:try caramel and tawny For dark skin:gold,chocolate and terra-cotta will do.No matter your skin tone,the best neutrals is going naked.these guidelines will make you choose the right color. The best step to having an even skin tone is by applying your foundation which is more important. nude2 At the same time,try not to apply a heavy base to avoid a cakey face.for an effortlessly even tone,use a tinted moisturiser or a sheer foundation.(if not,mix your regular light weight foundation with a pinch of your face moisturiser.this will give a sheer balance).this tone also gives you a glow.Keep your face from looking flat with a shimmery eye shadow or blush. nude3 Let your skin be your guide. Choose shadow and blush in the same color family as your skin tone, but a shade or two darker.if you are going for a totally nude face,Go lightly on the eyes. Your lids should take center stage, so brush on a separating mascara instead of a volumizing one, and skip eyeliner.(or line your inner eyes using a brown eye liner). nude4 Lips should be neither overly glossy nor completely matte. Apply a thin layer of lipstick using your fingers.for a little shine,dab a pinch of lip balm,this helps remove excess color for a stained finish. Another tip for a nude lip is applying your concealer or foundation as lipstick. How to;apply your lip moisturiser on your lips then dab just a thin layer of your foundation or concealer and even out on lips(note to choose a tone in the same colour family as your skin tone).finally,apply just a tiny pinch of lip balm at the centre of your lip to plump out a bit.perfect that nude with a well groomed brow for a sultry finish. The nude makeup is barely there,just like a no makeup make look,which makes it perfect for a day wear.

    You’re very welcome kemmy, for your acknowledgement. I think i should state for the record…that this is the first time i may be getting interested in makeups…until now…whew, i just brush such things off as a no concern. But you have made it so different and more interesting. For that i say thanks. Well…On this particular topic, i’m of the thought that you’re only been modest to say doing this is effortless. No it isn’t,well…that may because you’re the expert. I’ll slightly disagree with it though. I went through your carefully stated tips and noticed that it would only take a painstaking effort to achieve this nude perfect look. So…it may be sounding easier than it actually is. Overall…Thumbs up!
