Neo Nude Foundation – for a simple and natural look that doesn’t need Instagram filters
Armani Beauty foundations are legendary: each new formula becomes a bestseller in its category. Owners of oily skin keep matting Maestro close at hand, fans of dense textures choose Designer Lift, and those who value durability most of all cannot imagine life without the Power Fabric line. And, of course, a rare make-up artist in his work does without Luminous Silk – a foundation that provides the skin with a noble glow.
The new foundation seems to be able to please everyone at once. He complements the successful Neo Nude collection, which was created especially for fans of the “makeup without makeup” effect. The main task of the Neo Nude Foundation is to create an even, radiant tone, ready to become both the base of a nude look and the basis for more daring make-up experiments. What are the main features of the product, we figure it out together with the national makeup artist Armani Beauty Anastasia Kirillova.

A carefully balanced formula that is suitable even for dry skin allows you to achieve the most natural result. Mineral pigments are responsible for uniform coverage (which remains light and invisible), and hyaluronic acid and glycerin provide the desired level of skin moisture for up to 24 (!) Hours. In addition, the Neo Nude Foundation has a cumulative effect: with regular use, the product replenishes the moisture deficit in the cells.
The Neo Nude Foundation is available in 11 shades, from the lightest zero to the number 6 (Medium Warm) – it is suitable for dark-skinned girls with olive skin tone.

The Neo Nude Foundation can rather be called a tonal veil: thanks to its silky texture, the product spreads with the ease of a serum. When applied, the oil emulsion combines with the aqueous part – and the coating is uniform and shiny. If you have oily skin, the presence of oil in the composition should not confuse you: the foundation provides a pleasant powdery finish.
You can do a little experiment: apply Neo Nude Foundation only on the cheeks and the area around the nose – and you will see that the skin in these areas will stay fresh and matte much longer than on the forehead and chin.

The easiest way is to spread the Neo Nude Foundation with your fingertips – light massage movements. You can apply it with a brush or sponge – the density of the coating will not change from this, but the consumption of the product will increase significantly. We are sure that you will want to use Neo Nude Foundation for as long as possible, so we recommend that you apply it as a regular moisturizer. By the way, the format of the product itself hints at this: a compact tube of a beautiful powdery color will fit into any cosmetic bag, it is convenient to take it with you wherever you go.
Due to the large amount of water in the composition, Neo Nude Foundation can be used in the eye area, where the skin is thinner and softer. The foundation is suitable for all skin types and does not contain glitter, so even oily and combination skin, the product will give a beautiful glow, and not an oily sheen.
Nude makeup with the Neo Nude Foundation: step by step instructions
If you actively use Instagram filters, then the Neo Nude line is definitely for you: these tools provide the very same feisty effect – but in real life! Anastasia Kirillova, national make-up artist of Armani Beauty, shows how to create such a makeup quickly and easily.
Apply Neo Nude Foundation in a thin layer all over the face, including the area under the eyes, blend with a brush or fingers – as you like (shade 03 in the photo).
Use the Luminous Silk Moisture Concealer in shade 03 to work under the eyes and central area of the face and blend the coverage with your finger or brush.
With A-Contour (shade 20), accentuate the cheekbones by darkening the cheekbones. If necessary, use the same fluid to correct the shape of the nose and the height of the forehead.
Use the A-Blush in shade 53 not only on the “apples” of the cheeks, but also on the lips, in the crease of the eyelids and around the edges of the forehead: this simple technique is great for refreshing the look.
The skin will look even healthier and more rested, and the face will be sculpted and expressive if you add a little highlighter to the top of the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and the check mark above the upper lip. I used A-Highlight in shade 11.
Add a light tan to your face. Apply Neo Nude Bronzing Powder (Shade 07) with a voluminous fluffy brush along the hairline, on the center of the nose and cheeks.
Use the Smooth Silk Brow Pencil (shade 03 on the photo) to paint the missing hairs, comb well the eyebrows to remove excess pigment, and style them with a brush.
Apply a neutral shade with shine Eye Tint 11 to the entire movable eyelid, in a darker shade number 10, draw a line along the lashes, blend with your finger or a flat brush.
Paint lashes with Eccentrico black mascara, lifting them up from the roots.
Apply the Neo Nude Lip Balm in shade 02 to your lips. You can use the stick directly or draw on the ball of your finger. Makeup is ready!
