If you want a lesson on wearing nude or neutral makeup, you need to check out Gwyneth Paltrow at last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards. She wore a simple yet glam black dress, and paired it with slicked back hair. The makeup looks pretty simple and easy to do from afar, and for the most part it is. The eyes were kept simple and so was the skin.
The mastery here lies in the blush and the lip color. If you’re going to go with a nude lip colour, you have to make sure that your cheek colour most definitely matches too! I usually go with a pink lip, even if it is nude, and so I choose a similarly coloured cheek. Gwyneth went with a more of a light brown colour, and the cheek is a similarly warm beige colour. The two are paired perfectly and so the entire look is pulled together.
