3 Ways to Use a Nude Makeup Palette

When it comes to makeup, we often neglect neutral shades for bright, colorful palettes. And while these colorful palettes are extremely aesthetically pleasing, they can often be difficult to work into makeup looks that suit your everyday life. But with a nude makeup palette, the options are truly endless! Whether you’re going to work or the bar, a nude eye shadow palette is a must for any makeup lover’s vanity. Read on for three ways to use a nude makeup palette in your next makeup look.

HOW TO USE A NUDE MAKEUP PALETTE FOR A NO MAKEUP, MAKEUP LOOK

No makeup, makeup is a tried and true makeup look. It can be worn to virtually any occasion when done right, and a nude makeup palette is a total necessity to pull it off. Here’s how to get the look.

Step #1: Apply foundation

For your no makeup, makeup look, you’ll want to use a foundation that matches your skin tone and texture perfectly. The L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super Blendable Makeup fits the bill. The liquid formula comes in 45 shades making it easy to find your perfect match. Apply it using a makeup blender for a seamless look.

Step #2: Create a natural flush

Add some color to your cheeks with a subtle, peachy blush. Pop the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Bashful onto the apples of your cheeks to do just that.

Step #3: Style your brows

Enhance your brows by applying a brow mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara. This brow mascara will keep brow hairs in place and create a natural-looking thickness that won’t take away from your no makeup, makeup look.

Step #4: Grab your nude makeup palette

Ready to move onto eye makeup? Grab the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude in Nude and let’s get to it! To start, apply the first shade to your lid. Then, give your crease some subtle definition with the second shade. That’s it! For this look, it’s best to keep things simple. Finish your eye makeup with a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara in Black Brown.

Step #5: Color your lips

For your lips, pop on a colored lip balm for a soft wash of color. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Glossy Balm in Lovely Mocha.

HOW TO USE A NUDE MAKEUP PALETTE FOR AN EVERYDAY MAKEUP LOOK

Want to use your nude makeup palette to create an everyday makeup look? It’s easy! Simply follow the steps below.

Step #1: Perfect your complexion

For your daily look, radiant, glowing skin is the way to go. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to give your skin medium coverage with a glowing finish that lasts.

Step #2: Add some color

Create a natural-looking flush and emphasize your cheekbones by applying the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Blush Shaping Sticks in “C” and inverted “C” shapes. Then, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Highlighter Shaping Sticks onto your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, and your cupid’s bow for an added glow.

Step #3: Move on to eyes

Grab the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude in Nude to start your eye makeup look. Apply the fourth shade all over your lid, then use the fifth shade to define your crease. Highlight your inner corner with the tenth shade (on the palette’s far right) and you’re all set! Finish your eye makeup by applying some mascara to your fringe.

HOW TO USE A NUDE MAKEUP PALETTE FOR A NIGHT OUT MAKEUP LOOK

Getting ready for a night on the town? A nude makeup palette can be used to create the perfect going out makeup look. Here’s how:

Step #1: Perfect your complexion

For a night out, you’ll want to give yourself a flawless complexion. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, which provides full coverage and has a water, sweat, and transfer-resistant formula.

Step #2: Contour

Grab your bronzer and get to contouring! Apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Bronze It Bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks, sides of your nose, temples, and jawline.

Step #3: Grab your palette

For this makeup look, use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude in Nude Intense. First, coat your lid in the eighth shade, which is third from the right. Then, apply the fifth shade in your crease. Deepen the look and amp up the drama with the tenth shade, dragging that same hue along your lower lash line for a sultry effect.

Step #4: Line your eyes

This dramatic eye makeup look calls for some liquid eyeliner! Use the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Black to create your sharpest wing.

Step #5: Coat your lashes

Finish your eye makeup by applying a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara for an instant lash lift effect.

Step #6: Grab your lipstick

What’s a going out makeup look without a stunning lip color? For this look, we love the idea of a chocolate pout. Try using the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Explore or I Stand.
