IT LOOKS EF­FORT­LESS, BUT THERE’S A TRICK TO MAS­TER­ING MAKE-UP’S NO-SCANDAL NUDE

Nude lips – don’t be fooled, it’s not the same thing as wear­ing no lip­stick. Nude lips are cre­ated by wear­ing a lip­stick that looks like your lips should look with­out lip­stick, but don’t. Are you still with me? The look is well demon­strated by Kim Kar­dashian, who wears a lippy in the same tone as her skin, al­low­ing her to em­pha­sise her eyes. All skin tones are dif­fer­ent, so there are nudes that cover the spec­trum from pinky-beige to beigey-beige. The trick is find­ing the shade that is right for you. If the veins in your wrist look blue, you have cool un­der­tones and should stick to rosy nudes. If they look slightly green­ish, you have warm un­der­tones and should aim for peachy nudes. If you can’t tell, you’re prob­a­bly neu­tral, and should aim for beigey nudes. The main rule is to not go lighter than your skin tone or you’ll look washed out. Make sure your lips are ex­fo­li­ated by rub­bing gen­tly with a wet tooth­brush, ap­ply a thin layer of foun­da­tion, then your colour. Mat­tes can be too dry­ing, so opt for creamy prod­ucts like those shown here and top up with gloss if re­quired.
