On the podiums
Makeup artists are coming up with a whole new take on nude this season: make-up that cares for skin, in fluid, very light textures for coverage that's barely there. Before the models hit the catwalk, their skin is thoroughly prepared to give maximum radiance and shine. Result? A beautiful base that's minimalist, but never dull.
 
In your mirror
Want a natural, luminous base? Mix your foundation with a really rich moisturizer and apply for a guaranteed lightening effect. 
 
Another way of adding radiance is to apply shimmering highlighter to all areas that jut out (the tops of your cheekbones, forehead, bridge of your nose and under the arch of your brows) to make them catch the light. 

NB Only try this new nude look if you have good skin.
