As we reluctantly bid adieu to yet another summer, fortunately shortly after Labour Day, it is easy to get excited about what come’s next. You know what I am talking about. We may be trading in our shorts and flipflops until next year, but New York Fashion Week (that took place from September 9th to the 14th) has us swooning over the sudden prospect of adding more layers to our wardrobe and adapting our makeup look to welcome the crisp, autumn season ahead.
While the streets of New York City were bursting with creative energy, swarms of fashionistas, models, designers and influencers have their own take on what’s trending. From the bold and outrageous to the more minimalist approach to fashion and beauty, here are some of the makeup looks we spotted both on and off the runway that totally speak our Nudestix language.
Barely-There Makeup Looms Large
You will be happy (and not at all surprised) to know that natural-looking skin is still the shining star of beauty trends. This fall, set aside your full coverage foundation in favour of Tinted Blur Foundation and keep your skin looking natural and real with a soft-matte glow.
Our Tinted Blur Foundation Stick is a multi-tasking, 5-in-1 lightweight cream-to-powder foundation stick that tints skin with an ultra-soft, natural-matte coverage. Just draw and dab and watch it softly blur the appearance of texture, blemishes, discolorations, fine lines and pores. Available in 11 shades that range from Light, Medium and Deep, this a must-have base to begin your #filterfree selfie day.
The Allure of Contour
Now that you have aced natural-looking skin, you can enhance the look by adding some definition with our Tinted Blur Sculpt Stick. Choose between three neutral shades, this lightweight, cream-to-powder, ultra-soft matte contour stick glides onto skin and creates a soft-focus sculpt, which makes defining your natural bone structure so easy. For defined cheek bones, just stripe the Tinted Blur Stick along the hollows of cheeks, buff and blend. Instant sculpting is just a dot and blend away thanks to the lightweight brightening pigments that blend with your natural tone rather than mask it, so the skin looks real, sculpted, and lifted.
All Cream, All the Time
The days may be getting shorter but that doesn’t mean we are saying goodbye to dewy skin. And cream-based products deliver all the goods on this makeup trend as well as checking the boxes on a few others. Top of the list: Nudies Matte Lux All-Over Face Blush Color is your go-to multi-tasking tool that promises that highly sought-after radiance to skin long after the fall equinox. This buttery-soft cream-to-powder blush color stick (that comes with a dual-ended blending brush) melts onto skin for naturally blushed cheeks emanating that true “lit-from-within” glow. It’s like underpainting without actually underpainting. It travels well and goes the distance allowing you to add a swish of lush colour to lips and eyes too!
That sunburnt blush trend that dominated cheeks this past summer has carried over into autumn… with a change-of-season twist. Take your cue from nature and swap fresh florals with the changing colours of the leaves. Think terracotta, brick and peachy hues and sweep any one of our five fall-friendly shades onto cheeks for a burnt blush effect.
An innovative formula from Korea, Nudies Matte Lux softly blurs the appearance of blemishes, fine lines and pores with innovative soft-focus minerals and a light-diffusing formula for an overall soft-matte finish.
Life’s a Blur
From blurred metallic lids to blurred matte lip makeup trends, Blur is the word this fall my friends. If you invest in any new product this season, make sure you add the BLOT & BLUR MATTE STICK to your makeup collection.
“This multi-tasking, lightweight, ultra-soft, clear balm-to-powder formula is a game-changer,” says Jenny Frankel, Nudestix Co-Founder. Not only does it blot oil to create a soft-matte finish but it also blurs texture imperfections. Loaded with skin clarifying and oil-absorbing vegan-powered actives as well as anti-oxidants, it is a magic stick that helps reduce the appearance of blemishes and irritation.
Use it on fresh skin as a primer under makeup to smooth uneven texture, over makeup as a balm-to-powder setting powder that never cakes on. And in a pinch, you’ll want to keep this one in your handbag so that you can blot excess oil throughout the day and replace the shine with a soft matte finish. Just dot to blur and blot and you’ll never have a shiny chin again.
For eyes: A soft ethereal eye makeup complements dewy skin so try dotting and dabbing Blot & Blur over our Magnetic Matte Eye Colour to get that see-through wash of metallic colour.
For lips: A bold matte lip slightly blurred celebrates effortless and low-maintenance beauty. Just dot to blur and blot and voila’, you’ve conquered the matte lip look.
