If there is one makeup trend that has caught our eye, it is nude makeup looks. Guilty of being too subtle and silently making a statement, simple nude makeup meets our brief of minimalist glam. But if you had to ask, clean girl makeup is a crisp and well-kept aesthetic with close to no makeup. Smouldering nude glossy lips, fuss-free eyes and understated highlights will take a total of five minutes of your time!
Simple nude makeup is kicking off as a staple celebrity go-to look, and there is nothing we don’t love about it. From Alia Bhatt’s bridal nude makeup to Sara Ali Khan’s runway look for Falguni and Shane Peacock, clean makeup is light, fresh and perfect for every season.
Here are some celebrities that are giving us serious clean girl makeup goals, so take cues:
1. Alia Bhatt
The brown-eyed beauty has stunned us in more ways than one. Her acting skills, candour and fuss-free style are enviable. But what we love most about her choices is her simplicity that reflects in her nude makeup looks. Seen during her latest promotional tour for Brahmastra, Alia’s pregnancy glow does the work of a highlighter. For the rest, the actor follows a simple soft glam look with naturally tinted lips. Don’t make silly makeup mistakes when acing her stylish glam glow.
2. Sara Ali Khan
The Pataudi princess looked radiant as she walked the ramp for designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock. A fuss-free simple nude makeup for a showstopper validates our belief that this clean girl makeup trend is here to stay and slay. Looking every bit glamorous in a black embellished lehenga, Sara’s perfectly chiselled cheekbones had just a tint of highlighter, soft shimmering eye shadow and a nude lip shade to finish a celebrity-worthy clean makeup look.
3. Kiara Advani
Kiara has an enviable glow that works with every makeup trend this diva chooses to sport. And this time around, Kiara’s choice of nude makeup eyes with a striking black eyeliner was a look to behold. A clean girl makeup aesthetic that had the internet swooning, Kiara’s hydrated glow-boosting cheeks, defined brows and voluminous lashes teach how effortless beauty can look.
4. Janhvi Kapoor
Janhvi is known for her glitzy glamour and shiny makeup choices. But sometimes the diva dons nude makeup looks and slays them. Seen in a beautiful white floral chiffon saree, Janhvi’s simple nude makeup is giving us major #DesiPrincess vibes. We love her breezy drape, blush lids and a half-up half-down hair do as she captivates us with her big, bold eyes and the charismatic clean-girl smile. Follow these eye makeup trends for more festive-worthy inspiration.
Recreate Tamannaah’s nude makeup eyes and matching lips within five minutes. Trust us, it’s that simple. Looking like a breath of fresh air, Tamannaah stuns in a vibrant off-beat graffiti dress with contrasting heels and a messy braid. Her lightly kohl-rimmed eyes, nude lips and subtly-tinted cheekbones are a look to steal this festive season. The actor’s clean girl makeup look lends an edge to her bold sartorial fashion choices as she conquers one trend after another.
6. Shanaya Kapoor
She’s yet to make her mark in the industry, but Shanaya knows exactly how to become Gen Z’s favourite influencer. A believer in less is more, Shanaya is often seen sporting easy, mess-free looks that perfectly complement her delicate features. To replicate Shanaya’s simple nude makeup, mix a hydrating BB cream with primer for an illuminating glow. A rosy cheek tint with glossy lips will complete your less-is-more mantra for the festive season.
