How to: Wear nude shades of make-up this fall

nude makeup

Every season the beauty/fashion industry proposes us new trends, although through the time we witness some regular ones. One of this fixed stars is the nude look in different tonalities. This fall/winter the palette of shades, that was proposed especially by editorials, is oriented towards nude pinks.

I got the opportunity to try the new limited edition lipstick by Living nature called Precious and connect it with the above mentioned beauty trend, to show you how to wear nude shades this season.
I don’t recommend to wear too many pale nude shades all over, unless you already are very pale and suits you that no make-up look or if you opt for no-makeup because of the new grunge style. You can end looking too washed out and grayish.

The key is to enhance one feature and keep it strong if you decide to wear nude shades. Choose to enhance one of the features according to your style:

–  Wear a strong eyeliner with a flick à la Audrey Hepburn especially if you opt for a chic bon ton style
–  Put on your lashes lots of mascara to achieve the doll-eyes effect. This trick is very good for opening small eyes.
–  Emphasize your brows for an androgynous, youthful style
–  Nude lips combined with smokey eyes in grey or chocolate tonalities are an evergreen beauty look


Living nature Precious lipstick

My readers will remember that I’ve praised Living nature lipsticks in my first review and video tutorial and I still feel the same even after trying this new products. This brand can’t stop surprising me 🙂

Living nature Precious lipstick

Loaded with natural vegetable oils, waxes and pigmented with minerals, this lipstick is really a must-have, especially for women who love to wear nude shades. Its texture is creamy and glides well on the lips because it is so hydrating. I also like the fact that Living nature lipsticks have a good staying power as well. This new shade is not too pale, but a medium one. I’d describe it the best as an antique velvet creamy rose that suits lots of women. The package is black with the Living nature gorgeous logo, like all other lipsticks which are ultra elegant.


Living nature pressed eyeshadows

I wanted to show you another great product from Living nature that I adore! These are their pressed eyeshadows. I have complemented to the Precious lipstick 2 shades of eyeshadows (Shell and Kauri) that describe the best the above mentioned beauty tips and trends. They come in refill which is not just handy but also eco-friendly. You can put them in Living nature empty palettes as you can see on my picture or if you have lots of refills, you can put them all in an appropriate big palette like Z palette for instance. I want to emphasize that the texture of this eyeshadows is simply awesome: very pigmented, with a velvety texture that blends very well. Its staying power is very good too because it doesn’t tend to crease in the eyelids.

Shell and Kauri are a classic combination of shades that can be used for a classic make-up look and also for a modern makeup look as well. It all depends on your beauty style and what you like. Check the inspirations above that show how to wear all these colors together and find an appropriate style that suits you the most.

Hope you find the beauty tips for new season & the swatches helpful 🙂 And feel free to leave me your thoughts below.

    Great tips! I particularly love the soft nude shades combined with the full eyebrow. That lipstick from Living Natural looks wonderful. I`m looking for a nude color that isn`t too pale, because that will suit my warm skintone best.

    Great post and perfect timing. I am looking for a nude / pink lipstick. This looks great. 🙂
    The only thing I think it is a shame is when it’s limited edition. If you would like that you know that you can not get hold of it later.
