Use NUDESTIX for a natural makeup look this Valentine’s Day

The ground-breaking cosmetics brand NUDESTIX has just touched down here at HQhair, and we could not be more excited! And what perfect timing too, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner…

This year it’s all about the natural makeup look, and the gorgeous makeup sticks that NUDESTIX has to offer will get you looking fresh-faced, glowing, and oh-so desirable on your Valentine’s Day date.

The brand was founded by beauty industry expert Jenny, and her two daughters Ally and Taylor, who came up with these fab pencils as a way for women every where to achieve a quick and easy natural look. You can do up your whole face with just a few of the sticks and they’ll fit comfortably into your bag so that you can touch up your look on the go if you need to! Thanks to these no-makeup makeup products, less is definitely more this year; check out the video to find out a little bit more!

Here at HQhair we have all the necessary tools to arm you (and your face) this Valentine’s Day so that you can achieve a gorgeous natural makeup look with no fuss or faffing. A NUDESTIX Eye Pencil is the perfect way to cover all aspects of eye makeup, and you can do your highlighter, eye liner and eye shadow all with one humble pencil – efficient or what?! There’s a range of different shades available too, so you don’t have to sweat about matching your unique skin tone. Finish off with a simple sweep of NUDESTIX Mascara and you’ll be well on your way to nailing the perfect natural makeup look!

With a few more simple steps you can finish off your fresh-faced look. For a natural rosy glow, rub on your chosen shade of NUDESTIX Lip and Cheek Pencil, then hide your blemishes with the NUDESTIX Concealer Pencil (he’ll never know!) for a smooth, blended finish. Use the NUDESTIX Lip Pen to add a pop of subtle colour to your lips and hey presto – a complete natural makeup look that will knock his socks off this Valentine’s Day!

To top it off, the brand has just been presented with badges from the UK Pure Beauty Awards – Sliver for the Lip and Cheek Pencil, and Bronze for the Eye Pencil! Here at HQhair we couldn’t think of a more deserving winner.

I’ve always been a ‘girly girl’ but after being bitten by the travel bug in 2014, and spending 2 years living out of a backpack (with no hairdryer and a pathetic excuse for a makeup bag), I have gone through a bit of a makeup and hair regime overhaul. Like every girl I love a bit of a pampering and the chance to get ‘dressed up’ for a night out, but I now also appreciate the convenience of a ‘get up and go’ routine – it just leaves more time for cocktails on the beach (amaretto sour's ahoy)! I’m always on the lookout for beauty products to fulfill both the girly and traveler side of my personality.
