It’s ridiculously impressive to note that NUDESTIX co-founder Taylor Frankel was just 17 when she launched the beauty brand alongside her mum Jenny and then 15-year-old sister Ally. That’s one seriously successful teen. What Grazia loves about NUDESTIX’s mantra is the products are designed to create a “no make-up, make-up look” – basically, to keep you looking like you, just enhanced. Even better, the make-up sticks for face, eyes and lips are foolproof to apply – making them ideal candidates for the back of a moving car. How convenient…
Taylor showed us how she applies her three go-to products: two Nudies All Over Face Color Stix and a Magnetic Lip Color pencil. First up was Nudies In The Nude, which acts as a blusher, eyeshadow and lip colour. Next, we applied Nudies Glow in the shade Hey Honey. The subtle highlighter gives a warm glow and doesn’t make you sparkly. “We don’t want to look like a disco ball!” Taylor jokes. Finally, we applied the long-lasting liner and colour pencil in rose. Job done.
