Nude colors are huge on the catwalks for Spring / Summer of 2009, designers such as Chloe, Lanvin, Christopher Kane, Herve Leger by Max Azria and Derek Lam are showing nude coloured clothing.
How do you match your makeup to nude ensembles without looking washed out you ask? Well I came across this amazing article that can give you tips on how:
According to makeup artist Arianne Pool, "You have a couple of choices here - you can keep your eyes neutral by blending shades of cappuccino, latte and chocolates. Lashings of dark brown mascara will add definition. An apricot flush of colour on the apples of the cheeks adds that needed hint of colour. A soft sheer apricot lip colour will give the look balance."
I posted some pictures of my favorite beauty buys that can be the perfect tones to match any nude outfit!
