Get the nude look
Here are some tips on how to get that natural look with make up. Read on.Updated: Sep 09, 2010 02:43 IST
Choose a foundation shade that is closest to the colour of your skin. If you have pale skin, go for a yellow-toned foundation. Fair-skinned girls can choose a pinkish shade.
Go for a hue that looks natural. Avoid dark colours as it adds to the harsh effect. Extreme white or excess bronze makes the look too made-up.
Choose between a powder and a cream blush, depending on your skin type; if your skin is oily, opt for powder as it will merge better. But if you have dry skin, go for cream-base so that the make-up doesn’t flake away after few hours.
Apply blush on the apple of your cheek. But don’t apply liberal amount, or else you will look like a clown. Also, choose a brick toned blush-on — it works well for all.
Blending is the trick that you need to master to make your make-up appear natural. Blend in the direction of the hairline and dust lightly on the bridge of your nose.
