Blame it on the Kardashians, but nude makeup is a beauty trend that isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. From nude lip kits to baked bronzers, the ‘no makeup’ makeup look is all about subtly showing off your best features with just a little emphasis on color. Here are some of the best products of the season.
It wouldn’t be a story about nude beauty without mentioning KKW Beauty, Kim Kardashian’s newly launched line. The Skin Perfecting Body Foundation has proved its purpose via Kim’s Instagram stories. From enlarged leg pores to psoriasis, it covers it all. Available in seven skin tones, the foundation can be applied anywhere on the body to even out skin tone, blur imperfections and leave skin with a flawless finish.

Lip liner is back. But instead of mismatching frosted pink lipstick with a dark liner, the newest iteration of the trend is a bit more subdued. MAC’s lip pencil in Oak is the perfect neutral liner to emphasize any nude lipstick. It provides long-lasting color and also can double as a full lip pencil if you so choose. Options are what it’s about, ladies!
