Classic Nude Makeup Tutorial
1. Prepare Your Skin First with Skincare
This is the first step that’s very important to do which is to wear skincare. If you want to have flawless and long-lasting makeup, make sure you wear skincare first before starting your makeup. Because skincare can moisten your skin, so your makeup will stick well on your skin.
Furthermore, if the makeup can stick well on your skin, believe me girls, even if you wear it for a day it will not get cracked or cakey. Besides that, skincare can also protect your skin from the chemical makeup that can trigger acne and skin break out. So make sure you already prepare your skin before doing your makeup.
2. Get Flawless Makeup Using Primer
Another important step to having flawless makeup is using a primer! You know, people always think this step is not important and waste their money buying primer. You’re wrong guys! Who said this is not important?
Primer has a function to make your makeup flawless and prevent the cakey or cracking if you’ve done wearing it for a few hours. Maybe it won’t work on your because you wear the wrong primer. Because you should choose primer based on your skin type and skin problem.
If you have oily skin, you must choose a primer that has a silicone texture that has the function to lock your big pores and also hold the oil on your face. Furthermore, for those who have dry skin, is very important to choose a primer that can hydrate your skin, usually, it has a cream or gel texture. So, you have to know what your skin type is, then you can choose the right primer for you.
3. Light Feel Complexion
Then move on to the complexion. For the complexion, you should choose a product that can cover your imperfections but still feel lightweight on your skin. Because it can prevent your skin from getting breakout after a few hours. Therefore, we recommend you choose a cushion.
Cushions have a light texture because it’s more watery than foundation. And also, the cushion has medium to full coverage that will cover the imperfections on your skin like uneven skin, dark spots, and acne.
4. Concealer to Cover the Blemishes on Your Skin
Because the coverage of the cushion is just medium to full, it’s not enough to cover the blemishes like acne. So, concealer will be the cover solution for your acne. You don’t need to apply concealer all over your face, you just have to put it on the area that needs more coverage and highlight.
Apply it to your acne, dark spot, and T-zone to highlight your face. I have a tip for you to make your concealer can cover well your blemishes. First, you can apply it on the area that you want or the area that has acne, and wait for a few minutes until the texture is half dry. Furthermore, you can continue to blend it with a wet sponge to make it look natural. And voila, your face looks flawless!

To do this technique is so easy, you just have to put much loose powder with a sponge, then apply it on the area that easy to gets cracked and the area where you apply the concealer. After you feel it’s already set in your face, you can blend it with a powder brush.

Wear the color of contour based on your skin tone. If you have a pink undertone, you can choose ash brown. But if you have a warm undertone, you can prefer warm brown. To apply contour, you just put on the area that you want to give illusions.
