I Always Fall For Your Type…

The makeup world is full of beautiful colors, from fire hydrant reds to deep plums and vibrant oranges. Yet here I am having to openly admit that yes, I bypass these beautiful colours and am immediately drawn to the earthy tones and  end up falling for the same damn colour I fell for last time. I, Madeline, admit, most of my lipsticks and eye shadows range from brown, to taupe, to cream to nude. How thrilling.

Nude colors definitely do have their place in your makeup bag though. Particularly in Australia, many of our major faces are fans of nude shades. Unlike some of the more exciting colour choices, nudes give you a more natural earthy feel that feed right into the classic Australian beachy/girl next door vibe we see splashed all over Marie Claire, Harpers Bazar and Vogue Australia.

The beauty industry has figured out a million shades of (lets call it what it is) brown, and you have the luxury of picking ones that were practically made for you.

Have fun with nude colours, they enhance beauty in ways other shades could only dream of. Think about your eye colour, skin undertone or if you don’t know that, your preferred jewellery colour (silver – cool toned nudes or gold- warm toned nudes) when choosing your perfect hues and don’t stop looking till you find it!

(And no matter how many times your family rolls your eyes at you because you’ve bought home another lipstick that “looks like all of your other bloody lipsticks” I’m right there with you, keep on collecting sista).

 Here are my top picks for nude shades.
