I love the natural look. It looks so much prettier than caked on make up... and now that Spring is nearly here, it’s the perfect time to perfect your nude look! There are plenty of places to go wrong, though, and sometimes trying to look like you aren’t wearing make up requires even more make up! Here are my top ten tips for getting it right...
1. The Image

Remember that the nude look is luscious lips and fluttery eyes, rather than smoky eyes and heavy foundation. It can be so easy to slip into routine when you are applying make up!
2. Know Your Colour

Knowing which colours will suit you is important. If you have pale skin, go for peachy colours, and light pinks. If you have olive undertones, select cream and pale beige.
3. Test it first!

Test any new make up, preferably before you buy it, but definitely before you wear it! You’d be surprised how many people choose a colour that looks wrong, and gives them a ghostly, washed out, look, or have to scrub it off and leave their faces looking red and sore.
