From entire outfits to make-up, nude simplicity is the latest fashion and beauty trend. It is the definition of elegance and classy minimalism if you consider it for the evening and office hours. On the other hand, beige, nude and white are screaming bohemian chic. All those loving sporty looks can rip the benefits of this colour, as well. Think an oversized jumper, skinny ankle pants and sneakers. Nude make-up has been associated with the day, now night outfits are balanced out with a few swipes of mascara.

These pale tones are sophisticated and chic, but not all nude tones will flatter your skin complexion, hair and eyes colour. Try out different shades and if you think you look too monochromatic, do not afraid to add different colours. You can never go wrong with pairing nude with green mint, white, pink pale and brown shades.
