Shades of Nude

I'm of the mindset that a shade of beige looks good on anybody. The trick, once again, is to find one that compliments your skin tone. These models above are all fairly pale with peachy pink undertones so this buttercreamy yellowy tone in perfect. The accent colors are also in gold and rust, pulling in their hair colors. For those of you who have darker skin tones, try garments with more of a pink tone and darker accent colors to pull in the shade of your darker hair and eyes. Below, Kim Kardashian is an excellent example.

But whatever you do, do not match the nude tone exactly to your skin! Otherwise you will look like this and nobody wants that:
