Stay Dry with an Umbrella in the Nude
Winter is here and the rain is going to make its debut any day now. The umbrella is something that seems to get forgotten as a fashion accessory and thought of more as a functional item. Well, we love that it can serve as both! This way, you are always looking your best, rain or shine.

Prep this week by using Covered in Nude's most recommended brands of moisturizers for your next Holiday party or head start on New Years (before we get into the best make up tips for this December)!
While picking a moisturizer it is important to consider your skin type and weather. “Most patients will say they have sensitive skin,” states New York cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank. The best way to determine your skin type is to examine it at the end of the day in your T-Zone. Dr. Frank also states it is best to apply a moisturizer after using a toner on your skin. Tips.... Use a lotion if you have oily skin and a creme if you have dry skin. See our picks below!
1. La Mer Moisturizing Cream (Dry, or normal skin this lotion will work wonders)
2. Belief True Cream Moisturizing Balm (A personal favorite especially for spot treatment on dry skin!)
3. Sibu Beauty Nourishing Facial Cream (for those all natural beauty product fans!)
4. Pinks Lemongrass & Camellia Moisturizer (best for someone with oily skin - water based)Beauty Instagram of the Week: @angelcandices

Indian "Bollywood" designer, Manish Malhotra has just completed 25 years in the industry, and is absolutely leaving behind a legacy and beautiful history. His craftsmanship and storytelling represents the contemporary side of India. He designs and styles for the most well-known Bollywood actresses. His background in costume design and eye for the extremely glamorous helped him rise to the top. Manish is one of the most sought out designers in India for couture, film, and wedding dresses.
Manish became an international design and promoted the Indian culture through his work by using Indian embroidery, design, and fabric. Vogue celebrates the end of this era by featuring him and his work on the cover. Manish was 23 years old when he entered the film industry and has become very well liked by his peers. The models on the cover spill how much they love working with him.
“I feel like a lot of designers… are so full of themselves they don’t even care to find out what the consumer is feeling. For me it’s the opposite, I have a connect with the audience. My ultimate goal is for the person wearing my garment to feel good in it. I design clothes for weddings and there were times when people looked down on it, but I have always felt like I am a part of such an important day in someone’s life, and they will remember that outfit more than anything else.” - Manish Malhotra

Dior released their Holiday 2015 Collection, "State of Gold" and its perfect for your next outing. The collection is full of shimmery nude and gold palettes for all skin tones. From powder to nail polish you will be covered in Dior sparkle.
The Golden Light Illuminating Compact Powder is available in two shades; a golden beige and an iridescent pink. Apply with a small powder brush to the top of your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, under your brow bow, and your cupids brow. Try replacing your bronzer with this illuminator for a fresh, dewy glow this winter.
Add shine and texture to your holiday smoky eye with the Long-Wear Professional Mirror-Shine Eyeshadow. The eyeshadow will create an intense velvet matte finish. To apply softly use your finger - it will create a slight mask of color. For a more matte color use the applicator.
We are always a big fan of the Dior Addict Gloss and this Holiday Edition is extra special. It will be great with your day or night look. For a final touch apply this gold Diorific Vernis Nail Polish.
