With the help of her expert-approved picks, Celebrity Makeup Artist Ashima Kapoor reveals 6 tips on how to achieve the perfectly natural makeup look.
Going nude with your makeup is the new natural! With a larger number of brides taking a minimalist approach by opting for an all-natural makeup look, the nude makeup trend is here to stay. In order to ensure that you don't end up going 'not-so-natural' with your makeup, the beauty savant is here to guide you through the way.
Tip 1: Pick a foundation that is 'buildable'. This suggests that the foundation's coverage can be built from less to more, if required. Additionally, try and keep the foundation all-natural and opt for the shade closest to the colour of your skin.

Tip 2: Make sure that the eye makeup is done in fresh shades of pink, peach and beige. This will give the eyes a refreshing, yet glamorous touch.

Tip 3:To amp up the natural look a tad bit, it's always a good idea to apply a generous amount of mascara or even the closest-to-natural false lashes.

Tip 4: A thin line of a Kohl pencil, maybe even a white pencil if the eyes are small or a nude eye pencil, could be used in the water line to give the eyes a subtle pop and make them look defined.

Tip 6: Line the lips with a natural lip-liner pencil and fill the fuller lip with a nude lip colour such as a nude pink or peach for a refined look.

Pro-tip: One could also match their lip colour to the colour of their outfit, to add a tinge of colour to the face along with the rest of the makeup kept nude. This will brighten up the face, giving it luminosity.
