What is the nude skin look?

Beauty products with light textures and make-up in neutral shades: the ‘nude’ look has been in vogue for some time now. The aim is fresh, natural-looking skin. Or in other words, the ‘no make-up’ effect.

Several steps are involved in achieving this naturally beautiful-looking effect:

Step 1

The first essential step for beautifully plump skin: perfect moisturizing. Moisturising is the number 1 need for all skin types and the basis for a beautiful radiant complexion. Apply a moisturizer every morning and evening, for example, the Crème Fraîche® de Beauté moisturizing cream which combines 48-hour** moisturizing with anti-pollution protection. If you have combination skin, choose a specially formulated moisturizer to hydrate your skin and improve its quality, for instance, the Aquabella® Beauty-Revealing Moisturising Emulsion.

You can also use complementary multi-correction products such as the Crème Prodigieuse® Boost range. As well as moisturizing your skin, these products help to correct the harmful effects of a busy lifestyle and urban environment, such as fatigue and stress, to care for the skin and reveal its natural beauty.

Since a flawless complexion is the ultimate aim of the nude look, you can also opt for all-in-one products such as BB, CC or DD creams. Their light and slightly tinted textures will help to unify your complexion for a bare skin effect without applying too many products.

Step 2

Another product to apply before your day care routine and make-up: smoothing primer. Retouch locally as required during the day to blur and smooth little everyday imperfections. A smoothing primer is designed to form a ‘second skin’ and create a more even complexion. Laboratoire NUXE has formulated the Crème Prodigieuse® Boost 5-in-1 Multi-Perfection Smoothing Primer specifically to fade the first signs of ageing, a dull complexion, imperfections and shine, all in just 15 seconds!

Step 3

It’s now time to apply make-up. To achieve the perfect fresh and smooth complexion, pay special attention to this step. Choose an appropriate foundation for your skin tone and type. If your skin is prone to imperfections, you can choose a foundations with slightly more coverage, then apply a compact powder such as the Poudre Éclat Prodigieux®.

For cheeks and eyes, the trend is pinks, oranges and all hues of beige. So eyeshadows and blushers are your best friends for a fresh and luminous complexion!

Step 4

A little bonus: complete your look after applying make-up by dabbing a few drops of shimmering oil over your cheekbones, using Huile Prodigieuse® Or. For a guaranteed healthy glow effect!
