Nude Drugstore Make Up Look

Saturday, 23 August 2014


Hello everybody, I recently have been into doing quite simple and nude make up looks, and I really wanted to share this with you. I think this is perfect if you don't have much time to do your make up in the morning, or maybe for school, work etc. So let's get right into it!

(From left to right: Buffing Brush, Contour Brush, Base Shadow Brush, Brow Brush)

So no doubt everyone has seen these brushes before, yes the Real Techniques brushes. These four brushes are the ones I used for the whole make up look. First of all, I took my buffing brush and my No7 foundation in the shade 'Calico', and started to apply that to my face. The thing when applying foundation with a brush is to do a circular motion on your face so it's all blended in well. The No7 foundation is a light coverage, because I didn't want anything to heavy for this look. 

Then I took my Rimmel match perfection concealer and put that under my eyes to cover any dark circles. At first I was unsure whether this concealer worked well for me, as I didn't like how you had to apply it, because it has a brush type tip instead of a wand like normal concealers, however the formula is really great and gives such good coverage. I then blended that in with my contour brush. 

After that, I just took my stay matte powder by Rimmel, and put a small amount of that across my nose and T zone. Then, I took my S&G solar powder, which I love so much, and did some contouring across my cheek bones, with my contour brush. I would really recommend the solar powder, it's really good for subtle contouring! And thats the face done!


Now onto the eyes/eyebrows, so firstly I coloured in my eyebrows with the darkest brown shade in the picture above from the MUA Undress Me Too palette, its the shade Obsessed. I filled them in with my brow brush. After I just went through them with my Maybelline brow drama to set them. Then you're good to go with those eyebrows! 

Onto eyes, so I firstly took my base shadow brush and took the lightest brown shade in the picture which is the shade Lavish. It's quite subtle and thats why I only applied this eye shadow for this look. Then I curled my eyelashes and then applied my favourite mascara, the falsies. 

Last but not least, lips. I took my NYX lip cream in the shade natural, and applied a small amount on my lips and blended it in, because it is quite pigmented. Over the top of this, once I'd blended it in, added some Vaseline just to give it a little bit of shine. The lip creams stay on all day, so I think this was a suitable one to pick for this look!

What are your favourite products if you're going for a nude look? Thankyou for reading, I really hope you enjoyed!
