At Milan, Paris, London and New York, many different clothing styles emerged on the catwalk for SS 2016. But when it came to makeup, one trend stood out in all four cities: natural makeup.
Most fashion designers rely on the “topless look” because it doesn’t distract from the styling itself and only their latest creations are the focus of the audience. But the Nude Look was a perfect match for the throwback to the 70s that many designers riffed on, as well as the understated shades of pale pink and tan chosen by many designers for their collections.But appearing as if you’re not wearing any makeup at all is a high art that demands a little practice. Here, we explain how to copy the look step-by-step.
A perfect Nude Look enchants with a flawless complexion. After applying your favourite moisturiser or primer, a foundation matching your skin tone should be applied over red or brown spots–try not to apply all over the face to avoid a ‘masked’ look. But if your skin is generally good, your face cream can simply be mixed with a liquid foundation or BB Cream and applied all over.
We love: Vapour Beauty’s Stratus Skin Perfector. It reflects light, giving you a radiance, and fills in any open pores as well.
