The new nudes

Hong Kong Tatler - - Beauty -

If eyes took cen­tre stage, the rest of the beauty look was duly pared back. But rather than be­ing al­to­gether muted, the neu­tral­ity of brows, lips and nails was mag­ni­fied, en­hanced and am­pli­fied for a new-sea­son ap­proach to nude. Aside from a smat­ter­ing of clas­sic pil­lar­box reds, mouths were almost ex­clu­sively a your-lips-but-bet­ter ver­sion of au na­turel. They were plumped up in silken tone-on-tone shades at Dolce & Gab­bana, daubed and blot­ted to cre­ate flushed, rose­bud pouts at Burberry, or slicked with barely-there balms to add mois­ture and full­ness at Diane Von Fursten­berg. Face-fram­ing came by way of the softly sculpted cheeks seen at Carolina Her­rera, Givenchy and Mary Ka­trant­zou, where but­tery shades of soft rose, apri­cot and nude were worked into skin to en­hance cheek­bones. Ad­di­tional sculpt­ing oc­curred via the con­tin­ued trend for Cara Delev­ingne-es­que eye­brows. They were uni­ver­sally filled-out and fat­tened with tonal pen­cils and fi­brous brow gels. Fi­nally, for the new sea­son, nails whis­pered in hy­per-nat­u­ral shades of putty, greige and milky white. Taupe tones dom­i­nated at Michael Kors and dense fawn at Carolina Her­rera. Mean­while, nails were lac­quered at Cavalli and Tom Ford, where the women were “groomed, ex­pen­sive and un­der­stated,” says man­i­curist Liza Smith.
