I’ve always taken issue with the word “nude” when it’s used to describe a color – usually some version of light beige or peach. The reality is, light beige or peach is only “nude” for some people. This group of people does NOT include me. I like to think of “nude” as more of a concept, vs. one distinct color – basically, it’s whatever color most closely matches one’s skin tone.
Enter Shades of Beige. It’s Clinique’s recently debuted makeup collection featuring soft and pretty neutral hues for nails and eyes. They come in a variety of colors to suit a rainbow of skin tones. YAY!!
I’m currently eyeing the nail polish. Whether your skin tone skews alabaster, caramel or chocolate, you’re sure to find a color that works for you. After all, there are 16(!) shades to choose from. The ones pictured below were among my favorites, though all of the options are really beautiful. (L to R: Tickle Me, Chocolate on My Pillow, Birthday Suit). Wouldn’t these make great stocking stuffers? Purchase here.
