How to wear nude makeup in the spring summer season. Check out the new trends in makeup straight from the runway and get inspired for your summer makeup!

An apparently nude face is not a new look when it comes to beauty trends but it's a certainly an enduring one. This summer is all about a flawless complexion enhanced with sheer shades that let your natural radiance show through.

Models at the Prada, Elie Saab, Allessandro Dell'Acqua shows were spotted with natural-looking skin, minimal eye makeup and barely there lips.

Skin looks most modern right now with a matte finish, so choose an oil-free moisturizer to minimize shine, or try an oil-absorbing primer worn underneath your foundation.
Avoid heavy bases - instead, apply a light liquid product where needed using a 'buffing' motion with a foundation brush.

If going completely 'naked' frightens you, emulate the effect by choosing shades that mimic the look.

Beige or biscuit toned eyeshadows look gorgeous in matte shades and help disguise the natural sallowness of eyelids, while taupe lip colors are always an on-trend choice.
