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

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.

BEAUTY FASHION QUOTES
November 24, 2015
Alexa Chung a few evenings ago at the 2015 British Music Awards at the London Coliseum in a Nude Spring 2016 Erdem dress.
Quote of the Week
We love this style quote from Alexa Chung! A men's T-shirt or sweater can be a great Sunday outfit for a cute & casual look at brunch or staying home to watch Netflix.
Alexa Chung has recently launched app Villiod, a great social fashion app worth checking out since her style is always notable.
Jennifer Lopez, 46, looked amazing as always at last nights American Music Awards. Her signature glow was by make up artist Mary Phillips. J-Lo is a L'Oreal Paris ambassador which means you can get her flawless skin and look from the AMA's.
To get J-Lo's glow begin with the L'Oreal Paris RevitaLift Moisture Blur.
Next use the L’Oréal Paris Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer. Use it first or blend it with your foundation, this will help even your skin tone and give you that natural glow underneath your makeup.
Phillips used the La Palette Nude to create J-Lo's Nude smokey eye. The palette includes 10 shades to create seamless blending.
For a finishing cheeky touch her make up artist used Lancome Star Bronzer Long Lasting Bronzing Powder.
Neelam Gill is a model on the up and up and we are all about it at Covered in Nude. The 20 year old British model from London has starred in the burberry campaign, walked the catwalk for Burberry and Kayne West, and has been featured in Vogue. She was the first Inidian model cast by Burberry. In an interview she stated "I practiced literally every day after I got cast. I would go out to my garden in these Burberry shoes and get my mum to record me on my iPhone." We look forward to seeing more of her in the next Abercrombie & Fitch campaign!
Neela Gill's best beauty advice is to never sleep with makeup on. Her five minute routine includes the following products.
Creme de la Mer moisturizer
Bobbi brown foundation
Burberry blusher and lip glow
Blink eyebrow gel
Tom Ford perfume

Makeup like Kylie Jenner
Here is what you need to know to get this "no makeup - makeup" look by Kylie Jenner's makeup artist Hrush Achemyan. We will begin with the products used...
1. Eyes: BH Cosmetics, "Carli Palette"
2. Lashes: Benefit Cosmetics, "It's Real" Mascara
3. Concealer: Make Up Forever, "Lifting Concealer"
4. Foundation: Tarte Cosmetics, "Amazonian Clay"
5. Highlight: Anastasia Beverly Hills, "So Hollywood"
6. Lips: Anastasia Beverly Hills, "Undressed"
Start by doing your eye makeup before putting on any foundation or concealer. Note that when you are applying eye shadow you can add tape to the corner of your eye to achieve a sharper edge. Before removing the tape, smudge black shadow beside the edge.
Apply the illuminator to the tip and bridge of your nose, cheekbones, and areas you wont' be applying powder. Next conceal where necessary and last but not least apply your foundation!

Hijab wearing model, Mariah Idrissi, appears in H & M ad. In an NPR interview Idrissi states, "It's - I mean, it was amazing. I didn't expect it to get this big, to be honest. I thought I was only - going to show me for about two or three seconds. No one would really notice. But now it's gone, like, viral. So - yeah, it's really incredible." The news went viral on Twitter on last week with 14K favorites and 12K retweets.
Lisa Eldridge has a great tutorial on finding the perfect nude lipstick for your skin tone!
Makeup artist, Jeanine Lobell said to "think of nude lipstick the same way you'd think about your foundation. To get the right color, consider your skin color, hair color, even eye color. For someone with fairer complexion, a nude that's too beige-y will appear yellow; instead, pick a nude that's in the pale pink family. For medium tones, I would use a deeper beige to rose nude. If you want the truest shade of the lipstick to shine through, neutralize your own lip color first by applying a tinted moisturizer or foundation." This Fall nude lipstick will be a staple. See some of our favorites below!

Pure Nude Beauty
We are seeing some incredible nude beauty trends and campaigns for the Fall 2015 season. They will complete our head to toe nude looks, trends coats, and footwear. Not to mention accompany our holiday and new years outfits perfectly.
A Covered in Nude favorite is this Tom Ford flawless face look. We can't take our focus off of that lip. The Fall 15 palettes will give you a shimmer and glisten while you sip on some champagne. The maintained and well groomed eyebrows will continue to maintain a trend.
We also plan on taking nude beauty tips from Estee Lauder and choosing to go easy on the mascara for a totally nude eye (we recommend just a single coating). The bare look will help you achieve a youthful glow, looking fresh and natural.
Marc by Marc Jacobs, who is still fairly new to beauty products, but excelling with this nude eye and gloss. Gently highlight your skin and match your eyeshadow within a few shades to achieve this look.

As most of us have been following this years New York Fashion Week runway shows and after parties, we at Covered in Nude thought we would highlight our favorite beauty looks from backstage to the runway.
We are seeing a lot of NUDE natural looks and we are already searching for dewy make up tips. Especially from MAC.
