Nude brown makeup look20:34
First of all, explanation as to why I've been a bit distant with my posts. Well, I got a new job (a student job, not a real one), I sort of have to write a thesis for my Bachelor's degree (and I'm starting to go into a panic mode) and I didn't shop almost at all - so no new products. That's about to change, since I have been naughty already this month :). I promise, I'll get better with my posts and posting them, but it's just been a bit crowded. I'm sure all of you know how it is sometimes.
Moving on... I have seen some of the popular photos of Jenner sisters (younger Kardashian sisters) on the internet and fell in love with a nude makeup look and sort of browny tones that Kylie Jenner has been wearing. Neutrals are my favorite colors to use, when in a hurry and choosing a safe choice. I decided to recreate my version of brown nude eye makeup, with a bit of bronze, highlight and a brown nude lipstick.
As for the eye makeup, I used a light warm brown all over the lid. I then added taupe brown into the crease and dark brown shade in the outer V of the eye. I also used a light brown shade on the lower lash line. All the brown shades are completely matte. I only used a pink toned white shimmer eye shadow in the inner corners of the eye, to wake up the eyes. At the end, I added a little winged liner, not too thick, not too think. I finished with mascara and about 5 pairs of single fake eyelashes on each eye.
I particularly like the long Jenner lashes, but of course they're probably not all natural. If they are, good for them! I needed some help with mine, therefore the single fake eyelashes, because they look more natural.
On the face I put a medium coverage foundation and used a little less than usual. I wanted to still see through the texture of the skin. I concealed imperfections with a moisturizing concealer. Powder was reserved only for the T zone. On the face I also used my usual bronzer around the temples, a bit to contour under the cheeks, on the jaw line, neck and around the nose. But the bronzer was used very lightly, to make the contour appear as natural as possible. I also used champagne highlighter on the top of the cheeks, on cupids bow and in the center of the nose. No blush.
I put a nude lip liner around the lips and filled them in with a light warm brown shade of lipstick. Then I took most of the lipstick off with a tissue. That way, I got a really thin layer of lipstick. The lipstick itself is more shiny if applied heavily.
That is the finished nude makeup look, that would definitely suit everybody and would be good for any occasion. I actually prefer looks like that, because they're easy to create, you don't need a lot of products and it's a lot easier to maintain it, than bright lips or anything too colorful.
