We recently discussed spring trends and how to wear pastels this season. But lately, I’ve been enamored with wearing blush tones and nudes which I think appear extremely classy and chic when worn the right way. Prime examples are Kim Kardashian in Paris looking so glam in her nude dress and overcoat, her sister Khloe Kardashian in a nude Elisabetta Franchi strapless jumpsuit, and Gwyneth Paltrow in a glittery nude dress at the Vanity Fair after party. All of these women were able to pull off the nude trend and so can you with just a few tips in beauty and fashion:
Beauty: How to Wear Nude Makeup
To get Julianne’s look, try Josie Maran’s Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation which changes upon application to match the tone of your skin. Then she uses Lancome Macquicomplet Concealer which has a natural sheen and does not cake up on the skin. To set the makeup, she uses T. Leclerc’s Pressed Powder for a longer lasting finish. On her eyes, she used M.A.C. eye pencils and Buxom Lash Mascara. To fake that summer glow, she uses Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer. And to finish off her lips, she applies NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain.
To get Gabrielle’s look, try Estee Lauder Individualist foundation, YSL Touche Eclat Concealer #4, and Bobbi Brown Basic Brown Powder. Add a touch of pink to the cheeks with Nars Blush in “lovejoy”. On the eyes, use a combination of Lancome Quad in “haute sunset” and Josie Maran shadow palette in “beautiful nudes”. And to complete the look with the lips, use Lancome La Laque Fever in “lucent nude” lined with M.A.C. Fluidline in “blacktrack”.
Fashion: How to Wear Nude Clothing
A few popular ways to infuse nude into your look (besides wearing naturally nude make up as showcased above) is to incorporate a nude accessory like heels, handbag or jacket. Especially if wearing head to toe nude is too bold of a fashion move, bits and pieces of nude can be just as fashionable. Personally, I love minimalism and monochromatic looks. So a head to toe nude outfit while bold, shows confidence and extreme personal style. Here are a few of my favorite streetstyle looks wearing nude for inspiration:
