Repeat After Me: Nude Makeup Is Not Scary

Posted 04/26/12 at 11:10AM by Charli Schuler

I am here to dispel a huge beauty myth. "No Makeup" makeup (or, if you prefer, "natural makeup") is not harder to apply than your regular, run o' the mill kind.

Nude makeup is quick, easy, and nearly goof-proof. Plus, it goes with just about anything and has the added benefit of helping turn up the dial on your own innate beauty without smothering it beneath some mask.

The key to pulling it off? Having the right products on hand and knowing how to use them. Here's a rundown of my must-haves along with some pro tips to get you started.

    Nude makeup is not scary, but nude lips can look creepy on the wrong person.

    As long as you have the right products, it's not so hard! I personally go with foundation, concealer, powder, brow powder, powder liner, highlighter, and mascara for a "no makeup look." Sometimes a little blush. It seems like a lot of products, but they're pretty easy to apply quickly :)

    Totally support nude makeup! It's foolproof and it works for any occasion, even ones that are sprung up on you and need to get ready in a jiffy.
