Make up alert – How to achieve a nude skin look

Make up trends come and go, but a neat and natural looking complexion never goes out of style. As women, in our pursuit of beauty we can easily get carried away and misled by everything we see via beauty tutorials and dedicated make up channels, which often encourage the use of several products in one go, from primers and enhancers to contour shades and spry sealers, we end up putting tones of unnecessary elements on our skin ultimately making us look too produced, saturated and even older. Do we really need layers and layers of this and that? Definitely not, I think make up should enhance what we have, not cheat who we are.

I’d be lying if I say I don’t go a bit extra sometimes, – when needed – I love a nice highlighter and blush as well as eye shadows, but for everyday life simpler is better. Although lipstick and mascara are not negotiable I try to keep my make up light and as natural looking as possible, – not always easy to achieve considering various factors, such as  weather and skin conditions that we want to conceal often requires different products resulting in more than 3 facial ingredients on our face, sounds a bit too much to me.

So, if you are having the same thoughts I think you’ll love to hear about Estée Lauder’s new Double Wear Nude foundation. If from time to time you visit my Instagram, you’ll see I’m not a make up junkie, so when I recommend something I certainly use it and believe in it.  I found this foundation to be a smart way to enhance and protect our skin with its moisture complex and antioxidants formula, plus SPF 25. In case you’re wondering I’m wearing the “Cool bone” shade.

Reasons to love it?

It leaves your skin with a smooth finish and there is no need to set it with powder. It doesn’t look oily or patchy and its nice matte appearance gives you an instant natural look.

It’s lightweight, you’ll forget you have something on, and whoever sees you won’t be able to tell.

Real protection. 24-hour staying power.

With SPF 25 and anti-oxidants, it’s your invisible defense against environmental damage from UV rays and pollution.

Instantly and continuously hydrates with a moisture complex of red fruit extracts, including watermelon, lychee seed and apple.

Final thoughts – For me it’s great, I don’t have many make up demands at the moment as far as performance and compatibility with other products at the same time go, but if that’s your case it is easy to blend, provides an even coverage and soft glow, just like real skin!
