This Is How a Celebrity Makeup Artist in L.A. Does Natural Makeup

When it comes to lipstick trends, the brights and corals and ombrés may come and go, but there's one style that always remains en vogue: the au naturel nude. What does change, however, is its finish. 

For the past several seasons, nude lips came in one variety: matte and cool-toned. Now that's being replaced with a creamier alternative with more natural finishes like cream, shimmer, or gloss. And the nudes of today have a healthy dose of pink or peach hues to mimic the healthy flush of your actual lips.

To see how a natural nude lip can make all the difference, we chatted with makeup artist and certified It girl Nikki DeRoest of Hello to Beauty. DeRoest originally moved to L.A. for her career, and it didn’t take long for her to pick up that signature California style, which she describes as all about the glow (a look she clearly embraces). Scroll through to see how to nail the glowy finish for your skin and lips now.
