Harry's Top Tips:
Create a luminous base on well moisturised skin. YSL Cushion Foundation will give a light to medium coverage so the skin looks real yet perfected. Rolling Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Lip Balm over the lips with a cotton bud will pick up any dead skin and leave them looking soft and smooth!
Use the soft brown shadows of the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy New Neutrals Palette to emphasise the contours of the eye and create a natural shadow. Working a slightly darker shade into the lash line will give the impression of thicker lashes!
Softly define the brows and apply Benefit Roller Lash mascara for perfectly curled and separated lashes.
Depending on your skin tone, opt for a pinky or beige nude lip colour such as the Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Cream in Au Naturel. A great trick for fuller lips is to apply concealer such as Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil just along the cupid's bow.
Finally add a sweep of Clarins Bronzer across the cheekbones and forehead to warm the complexion.
And there you have it, pared back, fresh and simple, understated elegance thanks to the power of the new nudes!
