Naturally Nude FOTD

Hi everyone! I haven't done a FOTD for awhile, so today I decided to do a natural/nude makeup look.


I love rose coloured blushes and lipsticks, but today I thought I'd do something a little different. I tried to create a really natural look using rosy beige nude tones. I normally stay away from nude lipsticks as they tend to wash out my complexion, but I've found a lovely shade that doesn't make me look too sickly.


As I wanted this look to be natural, I tried to use as little products as I can.


The five products I used were:

RMK Pressed Powder N 01

Giorgio Armani Fluid sheer 11 (as blush)

Nars Duo Eyeshadow in All About Eve

Kiss Me Heroine Liquid Eyeliner

myface Gigabite Lipstick in Vintage Pink


I really love Nars' All About Eve. The colours are really natural, yet super pretty with a satin finish.

Oh no! I just realised I look like I'm actually in the nude in these pics. I assure you I AM wearing clothes!

I'm using RMK's new Pressed Powder N as a base. I'm really impressed with it and will post a review on it next week.

My lashes look non-existent as I decided not to use mascara for this FOTD.


This is the myface Vintage Pink lipstick that I used. It's the only nude lipstick I own, and I wear it whenever I want that 'polished' look or if I'm going for a natural makeup look.


It's such a gorgeous nude:


I especially love the texture of this lipstick. It's very creamy! Below is a lip swatch of Vintage Pink:

  23. I was very impressed with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (http://www.geocities.jp/hongkong_skii/index_e.htm), enough so that I have continued to use the product daily as part of my skin care routine after the test period. It's a luxury purchase to be sure, but this is one of the best products that can really make a significant difference in your skin, and so worth every penny.

    I applied the treatment each morning and evening after cleansing my skin and before moisturizer/primer and then makeup. Within just a few days I could see that my skin was much more supple and smooth - particularly in the t-zone. After about two weeks, I loved the beautiful glow my skin had - even without makeup.

  26. SO gorgeous! Love a nude look, so simple and natural, I wish I could pull off bangs like you, and quite honestly, I think I actually do have the face for it, but I just can't get over my annoyance with things touching my face! :-/

    Love the look of your blog, I'm at: http://blogs.inlandempirefamily.com/2011/04/14/color-florals-and-skirts-spring-2011-trends/

  27. Thanks everyone for your comments, and for the compliments on my skin x

    @Coffretgeorge The Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer is more like an illuminating fluid that can be used either as a bronzer, highlighter or blush depending on the shade
