Apply Nude Makeup at Home for a Natural and Beautiful Look

Edited by Kara, Yuliya, Doug Collins, Eng and 4 others

Hi, you're watching VisiHow. My name is Kara, and today I will show you how to do the nude makeup. It seems easy to make and sometimes you might not even notice it on the girl, but it takes quite a bit of effort to make it.

Steps

  1. 1
    For that, I will need two palettes. One is my new Avon eyeshadows, and the other one I don't even know the brand but all I need from that one is a light pink color.

    I already have my foundation, and I already did my eyebrows, so I will start right away from the eyes. I'm using the white shadows to go under my eyebrows. Start from the corner and go to the end. Basically, I'm drawing a triangle with white shadows. Repeat the same on the other side.

    Put some of the white shadow in the inner corner of the eyes. It's a must-do in basically any makeup you do.

    Now I'm going to switch to the pink eyeshadow. I never used to understand before why you would put pink color unless you were going for some Barbie makeup, but now I understand it. Actually, pink undertone and a chocolate or mocha color go really well together.

  5. 5
    I'm putting it above my eyelid, on the area between the eye and the eyebrow. The pink should be barely noticeable, but it does matter.

  6. 6
    Now I will use the brown color, which I will apply starting from the lash line up to the eyelid wrinkle. I just draw it all the way in the wrinkle line. It's very fresh and good for daily wearing, or if you're going somewhere in the morning and don't want to look too bright.

    When you finish one eye, apply it to the other. Start at the lash line, then go up, and basically draw a line again on your wrinkle.

  8. 8
    We're done with the top lid. Let's add a tiny bit of the brown eyeshadow under your eye now. To make a darker tone, just wet the end of your brush a little.

    Normally, I prefer to use black eyeliner for other types of looks, but in this particular nude look we will be using brown eyeliner. I think this one is Maybelline. It's actually an eyebrow pencil, but I will be using it for the eyes. I don't want the eye to be too bright or obvious, that's why I'm using an eyebrow pencil. I just need to define the lash line, and to make the eye look bigger I drag the line out past the edge of my eye. Apply to the inner corner of your eye as well, and some under the eye. Do not connect the top and the bottom lines to give the effect of wider eyes.

    Now you can't really see what I have eyeliner, but at the same time you can see the difference between the two eyes.

  11. 11
    Repeat with the other eye. I'm pulling the skin to the side a little so that it's easier to make the line.

  12. 12
    We're done with color part of the eyes, now let's switch to the mascara. This is one of my favorite mascaras in the world, I can absolutely say that it's better than any expensive, professional brand. The trick with this mascara is that you have to spend quite a bit of time applying it in order to see the effect, but the effect is amazing. It has a very wide plastic brush, and you have to really brush up your eyelashes. It applies a very thin layer each time, but the more you apply, the thicker and more voluminous your eyelashes become. It actually creates the effect of extended eyelashes if you apply it the right way. Every time you apply, roll it a little. This separates each single lash.

    Can you see the difference?

    Move on to the other eye and repeat. Another trick for this mascara is that for some reason it dries out fast. If you want it to last longer as you apply just close the top with your finger so that no air gets in.

    For my bottom lashes, I'm going to use a different mascara because the brush is too thick. When it's used for the bottom lashes it might leave some prints under your eyes. This mascara also has a plastic brush, but it's thinner so there's less chance to mess up your makeup.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Let's brush off any pieces of mascara and pencil that I got under my eyes.

  17. 17
    Now I will apply concealer. I'm going to be using Flormar concealer to put under my eyes and all the way up to the side. Repeat on the other side as well. These types of concealers last a very long time, unlike the liquid concealers, and they have a thicker texture so you will not wipe it off or mess it up.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    I will be using nude lipstick or natural lip colors. This is Avon lipstick with a very creamy texture. It has lip balm or lip conditioner in it, so you don't feel like you're wearing lipstick and because of its natural color, it just highlights your natural beauty.

Questions and Answers

Do you know how to contour to get a natural makeup look?

How can I use neutral shades to sculpt my cheek bones and define my jaw line?. I have tried: I contour my cheeks with highlighter and blush.. I think it was caused by: I would like the effect to be natural yet bold looking.

You can see in the VisiHow article titled Sculpt and Contour Your Face and Cheeks with Makeup how to contour your face with makeup. Choose a shade that will give you the contour without screaming "I HAVE CONTOUR!". Sometimes people make the mistake of going too dark with their contour powders. Usually, bronzing powder works with several complexion colors. Choose blushes that are more peach than pink when looking for a more natural look through contouring the face. The rose hues tend to over exaggerate the contouring powder.

Use an angles brush and not one of the rounded all over the face brushes. You will want to be very specific with the target area and a regular facebrush can make the zones you are targeting too wide.
