#TrendOnTrial : Autumnal Nude Makeup

Nudes are totally in this Autumn. No, we’re not talking about those kind of nudes, we’re talking about nude makeup. Everybody loves a good Kylie Jenner-esque nude lip, and it can be the perfect option for if you’re feeling like a bright red or deep purple might be a little too much. We took a look at Rimmel’s new Kate Moss Lasting Finish Nude Lipstick collection and put the trend on trial to find out if we could create a smoking hot look using nude makeup.

Get The Look – Autumnal Nude Makeup

I tried out the slightly darker nude makeup shades from Rimmel’s collection as my skin tone is a little darker, and I do love a vampy looking lip! I had already contoured using the Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette in Medium Dark, shading underneath my cheekbones, around my temples, down the sides of my nose and underneath my bottom lip. I then used the highlight section of the palette and applied on top of my cheekbones, in the center of my forehead and on my cupids bow. For the vampy nude lip, I tried out the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Nude Collection in shade 48. Unlike the matte collection, these nude lipsticks feel much more hydrating and glossy, which means this dark nude has a really nice shine to it! I then finished the look off with a dark nude nail shade, Rimmel’s Kate Salon Pro Nail Polish in Sensual Spice.

HQ gal Terri Lowe tried out some lighter shades for her, ahem.. nudes. She used the Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette in Light/Medium to contour her cheek bones, then tried out the Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Nude Embrace. This shade is perfect for slightly paler skin tones, and is perfect for those who prefer a slightly more matte texture. Sticking with the paler nude makeup tones, she then tried out the Rimmel Kate Salon Pro Nail Polish in Soul Session.

We’ve got so many nude makeup shades available, whether you’re looking for a subtle nude, or a darker shade, there is something to suit every skin tone.

I’ve always loved anything artistic and creative, and experimenting with makeup is no exception! Bold and bright lip colours are my vice. When I’m not trying out new make-up products, you can usually find me scrolling through Instagram, laughing at the latest snapchat filter, or catching up with friends over a few cocktails. Long Island Iced Tea is my staple.
