As the season changes, makeup routine changes too. But how about these transition period where it doesn’t quite feel like winter and also nothing like spring? Isn’t it the best time to lean towards nude makeup? Fresh looking almost makeup free look. Also, not to forget that nude makeup is one of the trends this year!

Bold lips are perfect for autumn/winter, but when the sun is shining outside, it might be the perfect time to change some bits of the makeup menu, don’t you think so? Leaning towards peaches and pinks for natural effortless look. Nude makeup is all about minimal eye makeup with peachy/pinky cheeks and lips.

Nude Makeup Menu

A flawless base is a must when it comes to nude makeup, then the attention can be on the face. In order to achieve flawless skin, good skincare routine is important, you can’t expect everything from makeup, right? To cover up the blemishes and any skin issues, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is my go-to concealer. Once everything is covered, MAC Prolong Wear foundation won’t only give high coverage with flawless finish, but also it will stay on the skin without getting oily for many hours. It is a win win situation! After the base, it is time to give some colour to cheeks with Smashbox Crush On Blush Palette. Suntan for contouring and Guava for achieving peachy kissed cheeks, this combination looks so natural!

Who doesn’t like well groomed brows! Soap&Glory Archery is my favourite when it comes to natural looking full brows. When I want something for the eyes, brown/nude eyeshadows like Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick in Golden Chocolate is what I reach to. It will blend into something neutral without looking too much. To finish of the eye makeup, Rimmel London Super Curler Mascara will give these soft curled lashes. Lastly, #45 rose nude lipstick from Rimmel London Kate Nude Collection is a pretty choice, just make sure that your lips aren’t dry or patchy otherwise this lipstick will be the worst choice.

This is how I’ve been doing my nude makeup lately, it is simple yet a great transition makeup. How’s your transition makeup? Do you like wearing nude makeup or do you prefer going for colours?

P.s. Doesn’t Olivia Palermo look beautiful with her nude makeup?

I still really want to try the Smashbox Crush On Blush Palette after I read your review a little while ago. All of the colours are just pinky/peachy beautifulness and gorgeous for the Spring/Summer months especially. – Mini Sephora and Macy’s Haul

  • I pretty much wore simple, natural makeup the whole winter…similar to the picture you’ll see in my latest post on LA Splash Cosmetics. But now that Spring is almost here, I have been reaching for brighter lipsticks and my top two choices have been YSL Fuchsia in Rage and NARS Fanny.

    • I am slowly leaving my berry lipsticks behind and reaching to pinks, once I see sun shine I will definitely be going for brighter lips 🙂

  • Charlotte

    I love a good nude lipstick so I must try this rimmel one!
    Charlotte //

  • Funnily enough I find myself wearing a lot of nude makeup looks at the moment, it has to be because of the transition period as you said! It’s always a great look to go for because it’s easier to create than elaborate eye makeup looks and quicker to apply than dark lipsticks! The Rimmel lipstick is super pretty 🙂

    Such lovely picks, darling! You can’t go wrong with nude makeup looks, they are perfect for everyday and always look so effortless. 🙂 <3 I remember reading your review of the KIKO eyeshadow stick, and it's been on my radar ever since. The shade looks absolutely gorgeous and I think it would work well as an eyeliner, especially on the bottom lid. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your nude makeup menu with us, I enjoyed reading about your picks! Hope you're well. Kisses. x x x


    • Thank you so much, sweetheart 🙂 You really need Kiko eyeshadow sticks, they are so good! I hope you’re having a lovely week xx

  • I myself can’t make a nude makeup.
    I look pale every time but this one seems pretty interesting.

    Have a great day!

    • It is kinda tricky to find the colours that would match you, at first I was looking so pale too. I hope you’re having a great week!

  • I often wear nude makeup on the eyes and my favorite eyeshadow for that is Maybelline Color Tattoo in Creamy Beige. As you know, I like to opt for a pop of color on the lips, most of the time! 😉

    • I actually miss wearing bright pink lips, since spring is coming I have an excuse to shop some bright lipsticks 😀

  • Great tips for getting a nude makeup look! 🙂

    I tend to keep my makeup pretty simple year round, although I am a fan of a bright lipstick I bought for one of those instagram style challenges – I wear it almost every day now!

    I am such a huge fan of nude makeup and very rarely wear anything else. It’s just so easy to wear, always looks classic and beautiful but easy to dress up to. Olivia Palermo is such a top babe too!

  • Even this weekend with my bestfriend she was telling me how much better I look with nude make up on and I agree – it definitely makes me look a bit more elegant in a way which is what I love in makeup.

    Also – Olivia is a beaut.

    • Nude makeup is flattering and I’m sure you look gorgeous with nude makeup! x

  • I can never figure out how to go nude with my eyeshadow without going overboard completely–my downfall with makeup–it’s either all or nothing, aha. But great post.. I like the minimalist approach to makeup. Now if I could only implement it on my face..

    Vanesa | The Beauty Anecdote

    • It is kinda tricky with eyeshadows, that’s why I prefer neutrals then it gets hard to go overboard with them 🙂

  • I finally found the Brownie shade in Archery and I`ve been loving it ever since I got it. Those Kiko eye shadows sticks are gorgeous, I have a plumy one which I absolutely loved during Winter.

    • Archery is amazing, I love the natural look it gives 🙂 I want to pick up a few more shades from Kiko, but I’m not sure which one to pick since all of them look so pretty 🙂

  • Rajwant Kaur Singh

    Such pretty picks, I’m completely obsessed with Archery and so will definitely be giving some more of these products a go!
    Definitely agree that summer time calls for a fresh nude make up look, can’t wait for the sun along with it though

    What Raj Wants

    • Can’t wait for the sun either, so I can wear bright lipsticks and blushes!

  • rishika agarwal
  • Jas S

    I used to use the Soap and Glory archery until I discovered Benefits Gimme Brow and now there is no looking back for me.

  • Nude makeup is my fall back, too, it’s my comfort zone! Every time I love a Rimmel mascara they discontinue it so I refuse to buy them anymore! ;-0

    • When I’m lazy (which is most of the time), nude makeup is my go-to. It is easy 🙂 I hate it when brands discontinue some good gems, it is really annoying 🙁

  • A great composition of products for a nude look! I definitely need a brow groomer. I’ve a got a pencil and fill in powder, but no brush.
