Matte or Shimmer Nude Gloss for Autumn?

Matte or Shimmer Nude Gloss for Autumn? (tell us & win) When the nude “no makeup” look debuted in Milan almost a decade ago, few industry experts expected it to become the beauty look of a generation. But that is exactly what has happened.

neutral makeupNeutral makeup is the signature look of Generation Y who frequent music festivals, hang out in coffee bars and are connected to their smart phones 24/7. But what looks like no makeup is actually a clever application of beiges, sands and highlighters to create a dewy, fresh-faced effect.

And no other product has had an effect like nude lip gloss. From soft champagne to latte to deep chocolate, nude shades are best-sellers around the globe (second only to pink).

nude makeupWear them on their own or layer them over lipstick to tone down a strong shade. Shimmer and high gloss textures have been wildly popular for more than five years. The new trend is matte.

nude makeup“The easiest way to update your look for Autumn is to change the texture from a shiny gloss to a matte,” explains Rebecca Restrepo, Elizabeth Arden’s celebrity makeup artist.

nude makeup“For someone who is afraid of changing colour, start by adjusting the texture.” When it comes to selecting a neutral lip hue, she recommends starting with a colour that is one or two shades lighter or darker then your natural lip colour.

nude makeup “That is a great place to start. I recommend wearing a new colour for a full day before you make up your mind. It’s important to live with it for a bit to see if you really like it.”

I gave away this set to one lucky reader. Michelle S from California told us she prefers shimmer to matte glosses. We drew her name at random from all those who entered. Congrats Michelle!

    I love matte lips on other people but I think shimmer glosses look better on me.

    I prefer Matte but I think for fall Shimmer would be best because it’ll go great with all the colors of fall and changing leaves.
