The time has come, it’s another Brand of the Week – and what an exciting one it is too. If you’re anything like us, you’ll spend a lot of time trying to make the right life choices; exercising, eating healthily, drinking enough water, the list goes on. When it comes to skincare, we’re always searching for the best products for our skin; ones that eliminate harmful toxins and chemicals we can’t pronounce. So, why don’t we look for the good in our makeup too? Well, ladies, now you can, because this week we’ve pulled out all the stops with a Nude by Nature takeover. The brand will be introducing one of their cult products each day, so make sure you keep checking back to avoid missing out ?!
WHO IS NUDE BY NATURE?
Nude by Nature, founded in 2008, is Australia’s No 1 mineral makeup brand. Our favourite thing? The brand is cruelty-free and harnesses natural ‘good for you ingredients’. Formulas hone in on powerful native Australian vitamins and essentials oils, including kaolin, qunadong, macadamia, shea butter, avocado and vitamin E as well as bamboo powder for a soft-focus finish, and antioxidant-rich Australian native kakadu plum and lily pilly to benefit the skin. All formulations have been developed to provide different finishes and shades that offer an uncompromised finish, without the toxins. At last, flawless skin comes naturally!
WHAT WE LOVE
Here at LiB, we’ve tried many products over the years, and a stand-out for us has been the Nude by Natural Powder Foundation. Did you know that one is sold every minute? That’s pretty impressive. The feather-light SPF 15 Radiant Loose Powder Foundation formula adapts naturally to skin tones, evens out complexion, covers redness and pigmentation, and conceals enlarged pores – that’s a lot of our skin woes sorted in one hit, we love it! This is best used with the brand’s Flawless Brush – use this to gently push into the mesh sifter on the Radiant Loose Powder Foundation, tap away the excess and then buff the powder onto skin in light, circular motions. Start at the centre of the face and work outward until your desired level of coverage is achieved.
We’re also huge fans of its liquid big sister, the Nude by Nature Flawless Foundation, an oil and fragrance-free formula that is buildable from medium to full coverage while providing a long-wearing, second skin type finish. Our top tip? Apply using the Nude by Nature Buffing Brush for a seamless finish and always apply over a primer – the Nude by Nature Perfecting Primer is great for this as it creates a smooth, even base for makeup.
So, why is mineral makeup the better option? The major benefit, in a nutshell, is that it’s good for your skin. Mineral makeup products, such as those from Nude by Nature, do not contain fillers or controversial synthetic ingredients such as parabens, chemical dyes, silicones and other film forming ingredients that can clog pores and hinder skin from ‘breathing’ naturally. This can prolong and irritate existing skin problems as well as cause issues with the skin, such as redness, blemishes and acne.
So, you’ve discovered the products, now how to use them? We turned to Nude by Nature’s Brand Ambassador, Clint Dowdell for his top tips:
