Newly crowned Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi has proven that sometimes less is more with her simple yet elegant look at the Miss SA beauty pageant on Women’s Day.
Zozibini’s no-make-up make-up and cropped natural hair is a winning combo. You can get this look too – without spending a fortune on skincare and make-up!
Get your glow on
The first step to a flawless nude make-up look is healthy glowing skin. Follow a good skincare routine to treat and prevent skin problems.
Start by cleansing, toning and moisturising your face. Try the Garnier Even and Matte product range for a perfect matte effect. Exfoliate your skin two to three times a week to remove dead skin cells, stubborn dirt and excess make-up. Try Glow L’Oréal Sugar Scrubs to exfoliate your face and lips.
Apply a thin layer of Maybelline Fit Me foundation and concealer to cover any uneven spots like pimples, hyperpigmentation or dark circles.
No make-up make-up
Stick with your natural eyelashes and only apply mascara. Use L’Oréal Paris Paradise Extatic Mascara Black Rose Gold to give your lashes more volume.
Remember, you are working to achieve a no-makeup make-up look, so your eyeshadow should be nude and preferably matte. NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette in Warm has the perfect nude shades for you, as it comes in 16 shades and finishes, ranging from mattes and satins to shimmers and metallic. You can never go wrong with this one!
Natural-looking feathered eyebrows
Because you will have minimal make-up on, make sure you focus on your eyebrows to frame your face, while still keeping them as natural as possible. The new Maybelline Tattoo Brow peel off tint is perfect for adding definition to brows as it gives a more natural effect and lasts for up to three days. All you have to do is apply it two hours before you get ready. Just make sure you get your shape right!
Find the perfect tone nude lipstick
Keep it simple and use a nude lipstick or clear lip gloss for your lips. Try NYX Professional Makeup Clear Lip Lingerie Gloss, Maybelline Superstay matte ink in un-nude fighter or L’Oréal Paris Les Chocolats Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick 70% in Yum.
Keep your cheeks all-natural; you can even use a soft bronzer as a neutral blush. NYX Professional Makeup High Definition Blush has a variety of shades, including a bronzer.
For a finishing touch and to make sure your make-up stays put, spray-on Maybelline Lasting Fix Makeup Setting Spray. It’s water-based, sets your make-up and helps it last for hours.
