Look for Dimension
Once you've selected the right nude shade for your skin tone, the finish of the makeup item is key. "Be sure to choose shadows and blushes with shimmer to add dimension to nude colors," says Carmindy. We love MAC Eyeshadow in Shroom, a glimmery, champagne-hued neutral that flashes peach in the light, similar to what Michelle Tractenberg wears here.
Nude can become unflattering when it's too opaque. "The important thing is that the product reflects the light," says Carmindy. "If the shade is too flat, it can look dusty and chalky — like you're erasing yourself." And that's the opposite of the goal, right?
