The 5 best looks to sport this summer!

The 5 best looks to sport this summer!

1. The Dewy look:

This is for one of those events when you want to look good and bright but not exceedingly made up, and it’s so perfect for the summers. Use champagne-toned/vanilla/ shimmery light pink eyeshadow all over your eyelid, and apply white or even better nude eyeliner pencil on your waterline. This opens up the eyes a lot. Use brown eyeliner on your upper and lower lash lines. You can use brown shadow on the lower lashes. Don’t forget light contouring. Seal the look with some highlighter on your cheekbones, brow bones. Lightly dust the same on your chin, nose and forehead.

Thoughtful, happy and beautiful

2. The Smokey-eyes-and-nude-lips look:

The nude lip is back, and it’s best teamed with lightly smudged, kohl-rimmed eyes or smoky eyes if you have more time. Make sure you pick the right shade of nude lipstick for your skin tone or you might risk making your lips look too pale.

3. The No-Makeup Look:

The best kind of makeup look is one that makes it look like you aren’t wearing any makeup. Keeping it natural helps when you’re going out casually or during the summer day. Apply light coverage foundation with SPF or BB/CC/DD cream using a stippling brush or a wet makeup sponge for a dewy look, use concealer for dark circles and blemishes and finish with eyeliner or pencil and a natural coloured tinted lip balm.

Here’s the guide to get a perfect No-makeup look.

4. The Pretty Pink Look:

Pink looks good and brightens up most shades of skin. Use a white eyeliner on your waterline and apply light pink shimmery eyeshadow on your eyelid crease, with nude eyeshadow on the lids. Don’t forget the pink blush for the glow of the youth. Finally, use a pink lipstick/ lip balm or gloss to complete the look.

WARNING: Please be light-handed with all the products! Too much of pink can ruin the look! Avoid mauve-pinks if you are dark brown.

5. The Bronze Goddess Look:

Brown eye shadow and eye pencil, some bronzer, a highlighter and nude lipstick can go a long way to achieve a sun-kissed look. Use bronzer to shade and contour your face and highlight your cheekbones. Apply translucent powder on oil-prone areas of your face and finish up with nude lipstick. Amazing!

Get your perfect nude lipstick!

Like the perfect pair of black trouser, a classic white button-down or a skinny jeans a flattering go-anywhere-anytime nude lipstick should be a staple in everyone’s makeup wardrobe.

Whether you want to downplay you lip shape, love natural-looking makeup, or need a neutral counterpart to a bold eye effect, a nude lip look perfect! But, the truth is, it’s tough to find a flattering nude shade. A right shade can totally make or break your look. A wrong shade will wash you out to the dreaded dead girl look.

Here are the best methods and tips to choose the correct shade for you!

1. Avoid nude lipsticks that look greyish. Many nude lipsticks have grey undertones. Grey toned nudes can become a dull purplish on your lips, making you look lifeless and tired. So, stay away!

2. Choose a nude with a hint of pink or peach. Stay away from beige tones. Instead, try a pale pink or peach tint. These hues will still allow you to achieve the nude lip, and you will find that compared to beige options they look warmer and brighter if not more natural. Moreover, peach color-corrects and neutralizes darker lip pigments. You can also layer a sheer peach gloss on top of your chosen nude lipstick. But remember, my dear pretty friends, this peach shade should still complement your natural undertones.

3. Blow it up with a liner.Applying nude liner under a nude lipstick can help punch it up a bit, and also improve staying power. Experiment with different shades of pink or brown gradually adjusting the intensity until you strike the perfect look.

4. Color guide. Fair-skinned women should go for sandy pink undertones, medium or olive-skinned ladies can opt for rose-beige undertones, and darker-skinned gals should try bronze tints.

A few suggestions!

For fair complexions: MAC Lipstick in Myth For medium or olive complexions: Nars Satin Lipstick in Belle du Jour For darker complexions: YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Taupe Rahael (#25)

MAC Nude lipsticks you will fall in love with!

Like the perfect pair of skinny jeans, a flattering everyday-anywhere nude lipstick should be a staple in everyone’s makeup wardrobe. Whether you want to downplay you lip shape, love natural-looking makeup, or need a neutral counterpart to a bold eye effect, a nude lip look is something you can’t give a miss. Here are a few nice MAC nude shades that has clearly captured the interest of most stylistas!

Best MAC nudes
1. MAC Hug me – MAC describes Hug Me as flesh pink. MAC Hug Me is a beige-peachy pink lustre finish lipstick. It has the perfect amount of neutral pink, warm caramel and beige-peach shade in it to look like a nude lipstick that still has character and looks soft and pretty. It’s the kind of color that looks nice on all skin tones. On warmer and medium skin tones it really is the perfect nude. Does not wash you out, just gives you that polished nude lip look. On lighter skin tones, it’s more of a soft neutral pink nude, but extremely pretty!

2. MAC Kinda Sexy – MAC Kinda Sexy lipstick is a beige pink matte finish lip color. It is best for those with light skin tones and a great color when paired with dark eye makeup. it’s a nude with the perfect mixture of orange, pink and brown tones. The formula is matte but actually it has a pleasant sheen to it and doesn’t look flat. The shade was opaque but very comfortable to wear and not drying at all. The colour was just right-not too pale and perfect for day or night.

3. MAC Cherish – Cherish is a rich, creamy beige nude. It has an unbelievably smooth and creamy feel with a light glossy shine. I love it, because it’s well-pigmented (goes for most MAC lipsticks I guess) and gives a nearly full coverage on my lips. Cherish is one of the nude lipsticks complementing a really dramatic, smoky eye makeup. It works well to complement the look without competing with it.

4. MAC Velvet Teddy – MAC Velvet Teddy is described as a deep-tone beige despite looking darker and more brown in tube. For those with more pigmented lips, they come out browner. For those with less pigmented lips, it will be more like a pinky beige. This one is for fair to fair-medium skintones. It will wash out tones darker than NC 40!
