NUDE ILLUSIONS: BARLEY THERE MAKEUP TIPS FOR THE MINIMALIST BEAUTY

Most women want to wear makeup without actually looking like they are wearing makeup. The secret to looking effortless while wearing makeup is working nudes and tones that compliment your natural skin tone. There are many versions of natural makeup, my version of nude is enhancing your natural features but highlighting with rich shades of cocoa, copper, bronze and nude. 

Apply liquid or cream foundation with a dense fluffy brush. Use the blush in a circular motion throughout the full face. Blend a finely milled, loose powder throughout the face to set the foundation. Add a shimmering, golden bronze blush onto the apples of the cheeks. Using a bronze toned blush will define cheeks without the loud punch of color that you might find with a red based blush. 

Define the natural frame to the eyes by grooming the brow area. The current brow trend is a more full and lush brow area. Bring the eyes to the forefront by blending matte, chocolate eyeshadow through the eye. Add a full false eyelash and heavy coat of dark mascara to achieve this alluring eye. 

Lips should be nude, nude, nude! Apply foundation through your full lip. Softly line your lips with a flesh toned lip pencil. Lastly add a pink or coral based lip gloss to the lip to create your custom nude lip color.
