Nude Cheeks

We hear about nude lips all the time, but not much attention is given to the nude cheek.  Perhaps that’s because it’s not as dramatic as the former, however having the right shade of nude for the effect you’re after is something that makeup artists deal with constantly.   Sometimes nude can be a more of blush so having some sun or pink is desired.  Other times its purpose is solely to contour the face and create shadow and for this, shades of taupe or brown (depending on the skin tone) are needed.   However, in all the conversations I’ve had with other artists about this topic, we seem to agree that the elusive “perfect nude” would have a little bit of everything, while not leaning too much towards any one of them in  particular.   Sounds like a challenge for me to make one- and I’ll take it!   Stay tuned…
