Nude Makeup

I love nude makeup (a.k.a the no makeup look), especially in the summertime when your skin is brighter and more tan.  Spring runways were filled with ethereal beauties at Michael Kors, Chloe, Carolina Herrera, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Alexander Wang and more.  Nude makeup is not about covering up your skin, it is about showing off your natural beauty.  No layered foundation and caked on powder, think tinted moisturizers and slightly bronzed cheeks.

At Calvin Klein, the models had on CoverGirl Clean Liquid Makeup, CoverGirl and Olay Simply Ageless Corrector, and CoverGirl TruBlend MicroMinerals Finishing Veil in Translucent.  Their eyes were light brushed with some browns.

At the Carolina Herrera show, models had on Mac Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation and set it with MAC Blot Powder.  For blush, MAC Powder Blush in Style was used.  MAC eyeshadow in Retrospeck and Brown Down for a soft, yet smoky look was used on the eyes.  The look was completed with MAC lipstick in Twig.

The makeup artist for the Carolina Herrera show also did the makeup for Alexander Wang, which was also very natural
