Fresh, luminous skin is always in fashion, but this trend feels more polished – perfect for those who like the nude makeup look but feel a little naked without defined eyes, working with a monochromatic palette of different shades of brown takes natural to a new sophisticated level.
Contour with creamy textures
To create a glow-from-within complexion that has contoured definition, work with creamy textures to sculpt cheekbones and frame the eyes. Cream textures melt into the skin effortlessly, naturally defining your features while keeping a fresh, luminous finish. Think warm brown eye shadow crayons to enhance the eye contours, bronze multipurpose sticks to sculpt the face and golden creams to highlight. Use the warmth from your fingertips to blend the edges.
Add subtle definition to your eyes
The trick is to keep it subtle – you want to define your eyes, but you don’t want to overpower the brown shades. It’s all about creating intensity at the lashline. First, coat the lashes with a separating mascara, before lining the upper lashline with a fine liquid liner. To deepen the root of the lashes, you need to fill in the gaps between the lashes from underneath – lift the eyelid and work a creamy eye pencil into the roots at the upper waterline for natural-looking intensity.
Lift the complexion with a hint of colour
Nude tones look ultra-chic, but a monochromatic brown palette can be draining in real life if you don’t enhance it with a hint of colour. After lining your lips with a nude brown lip liner, fill in the outer edges and blend. Lift the look with a hint of rose colour pressed into the centre of the lip – it’ll still look like a nude brown lip, but the overall 3D effect will feel more radiant and alive.
