There is no better time than summer to try out a nude makeup look. After all, it’s been a runway trend for years, and even lovers of the extreme like designers Versace and Alexander McQueen send models down the aisle with just a smudge of bare color. Great nude makeup looks start with fabulous, glowing skin.
But like all things simple, creating the right nude look to spotlight your assets can be tricky. Nude makeup goes far beyond pale foundation and beige eyeshadow; there is a whole array of neutrals to choose from. The goal is to create a youthful, fresh-faced appearance and you can’t do that with just one color. Find the right shades and textures—dewy, satin, matte—that make
The first signs of aging usually show on our eyes—dark circles, wrinkles and puffiness—and can make us look more fatigued and older than we really are.
Once we hit our late 20s, the delicate skin around the eyes gets thinner and looser due to the loss of collagen and elastin. Combined with years of repeated muscle movements such as squinting and laughing, as well as UV exposure, lines begin to form and over time get deeper.

PRODUCT: LORAC Evening Out Complexion Kit
A flawless evening finish needs to stay looking great all night long - which means no oily shine or makeup meltdown. Luckily, our friends at LORAC have come up with the perfect solution: the Evening Out Complexion Kit. It comes in a sleek gunmetal case and it’s no bigger than a smart phone, so it it will fit perfectly in the tiniest of evening bags. The kit features two creamy concealers and a smooth powder foundation, which are exactly the products I love to use on a daily basis. I want a concealer to cover blemishes and spots and a powder to even overall skin tone and give me that airbrushed look.
The LORAC Evening Out Complexion Kit in Light was wonderful for me. The concealers are the perfect shades for my skin and are silky smooth, covering all my problem spots. The powder does not have that dreaded powdery look that other ones tend to have, and the best part is that my skin looks great several hours after putting it on… no reapplying needed! I also love the puff applicator for the powder. It feels so nice against my skin.
Make sure you pick up the LORAC Evening Out Complexion Kit before your next night out and add one less worry to your list. Picking out your shoes, on the other hand…
