No-Makeup Makeup For Every Skin Tone

If you want to look like you're not wearing makeup, you could always just not wear makeup. However, for those of us not exactly jumping for joy at the thought of rocking a truly bare face in public, nude makeup is a smart option. Of course, that's not as easy as it sounds: Picking out nude colors is tricky because they need to mimic the tones of what you're already working with. Life is so hard.
But, there's an incredibly helpful post up on YouBeauty that addresses this question. Not only that, but it breaks it down by skin tone and undertone, and then recommends the best products. Talk about convenient. From how to pick blush for skin that's fair and cool to the right nude lipstick for dark, warm complexions, this is basically a bible of natural-makeup info.
For the info you need to up your faux-bare-face game, head on over to YouBeauty and check out the whole piece. (YouBeauty)
