Everyday Nudes

My love for my new NYX Ombre spurred me to write this post, and although I’m sure I’ll get visits from people who are looking for something else on the internet, I thought it was about time that I shared my top everyday nude hues. 

I'm not going to spend too long talking about my favourite foundations or base products, mainly because it's pretty self explanatory that they would be nude as they match my skin tone. I wanted to give a quick mention to the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue and Clarins Instant Light Base* duo which I have been wearing on days when I want to let my natural skin shine through, add radiance, but also give a little coverage too. I apply the Clarins offering all over my face after my moisturiser and then follow up with the Bare Minerals pick, this is perfect for a lazy Sunday or a fast morning routine. 

When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, I have more than my fair share. The Nars Kalahari Duo is a great option if you're looking for eyeshadow that looks natural, but helps to define your eyes also. Whenever I need to revive my tired looking eyes I always reach for a nude eyeliner, specifically the NYX Wonder Pencil to help widen the eyes, diminishing red around the water line and generally just giving a more wide awake appearance. I like to apply it both in the inner corner and outer corners too, to help emphasise my eye shape further. 

Although the lipstick list could be the length of my arm when it comes to nudes, blushers are a little harder. Although I've got many perky pinks and Summer corals, I actually only have a handful of shades that can be considered neutral. The NYX Mauve Me Ombre Blush is the perfect pick, made up of two hues, one dark and one light, this adds just the right amount of natural colour to my cheeks without being too overpowering. 

Talking of lipstick, I've got many nude favourites, from matte liquid lipsticks to subtle satin's. I've recently dug out all of my MAC options to try and remind me to use them up; Brave, Spirit and Twig being three of my favourite. You're probably all sick of hearing about the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Liner and Lipstick, which are two of my current go-to's at the moment, especially if I want to fake the appearance of bigger, fuller lips. 

What are your favourite everyday nude products?
