Hands up if this sounds a little (too) familiar:
Apply flawless make-up in the morning. Go to school/uni/work/get on with life in general. Look in the mirror at midday to find your pretty face of make-up is gone. Melted. An absolute mess.
It’s not much fun, is it? So, in an effort to beat my slidey-face disasters, I visited Nude by Nature Make-Up Ambassador, Clint, for a bit of a complexion perfection makeover, and here’s how he took my skin from kinda-alright to flawless and radiant.
Start with a primer. Smooth Nude by Nature Undercover Airbrush Primer onto your skin before you do anything else. Not only will the primer sit in your pores and lines to create a smooth surface for make-up application, but it’ll soothe and nourish your skin with ingredients like green tea, chamomile, and beeswax too.
Clint’s tip: Don’t miss this step. You won’t need to reapply your make-up during the day, so it’s a lazy person’s best friend!
Apply your foundation. Using a Nude by Nature Application Brush, roll Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover across your skin, building the coverage as needed. The mineral powder contains kaolin clay, which combined with your skin’s natural oils, will leave your skin looking fresh and radiant. Plus, it’s free from bismuth, so if you were worried about skin irritations or the powder setting in any lines you may have, you can be rest assured that your skin will look nothing but flawless.
Clint’s tip: Don’t tap the foundation off the brush, rather load the brush and tap the brush down (so you’re holding the brush vertical and banging the handle against the table). This will help distribute the product more evenly into the brush.
Contour your features. Give your skin a warm, natural glow by applying some Nude by Nature Mineral Bronzer under your cheekbones and then in the shape of a three (starting on your forehead, coming in at your cheekbone, and ending at your chin).
Clint’s tip: Use a loose-bristled brush to create a more natural look. A denser brush will give you brown stripes on your cheekbones. Not a good look.
The finishing touch. Applying Nude by Nature Finishing Mineral Veil is the key to ensuring your make-up stays put during the day. The face powder works to lock in the make-up, absorb oil throughout the day, and keep your skin looking radiant.
Clint’s tip: Use the Finishing Mineral Veil under your eyes to conceal dark circles.
