A makeup guide to nude and natural look

When I saw this picture of Kareena Kapoor from the launch of new range of VAIO laptops, I couldn't look beyond that dewy face. She looked fresh and her skin was glowing without the slightest sign of makeup. Nude makeup is one of summer's favorite make up trend. It avoids making skin look gaudy and sticky. Who wouldn't love to wear minimum make up and still manage to look naturally gorgeous! 

Here's how you can get a fresh and natural look 


Easy on the pocket

    This foundation is super light and gives a sheer coverage and instantly brightens the    face. After 5-10 minutes of application the mousse settles down and gives a very natural look to the skin. It stays long and is great for day wear.  

2. e.l.f. Essential All Over Color Stick - Rs 112 (approx)

This is a miracle stick. It can be used on the cheeks, lips and eye lids to give a tinted glossy touch. For just $2, e.l.f (not available in India anymore) gives us a very affordable multipurpose stick. Move it all over the cheekbones to get natural looking blushed cheeks. You can use the same stick on the lips to avoid lip glosses.

 Kareena is known for her dramatic eyes. While going easy on the foundation, blush and lip color, focus on well defined eyes. It is the mantra! 

4. Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick - Rs 610

When we talk about going natural, it means lips toned down too. Revlon has lovely shades of pink matte lipsticks for those rosy lips. It stays up to 4-5 hours without a redo. Add a coat of clear gloss if it tends to get dry and you are good to go.

5. Maybelline The Colossal Kajal - Rs 150

Maybelline colossal kajal doesn't smudge easily (doesn't come off easily even if you want it to!! that's another story). It gives dark and defined look to eyes. One layer does all the trick.

6. Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Black 01 - Rs 410

This is by far the best eye liner I have come across. Comes in an easy pack, the brush and bottle allows for a easier and quicker application. Go for a single coat while playing toned down.
