Makeup Crush: Blush Nudes

Pink might not be our go-to for fashion items but when it comes to makeup, a soft, blush-hued nude or sultry mauve is the perfect way to create a luxe, feminine vibe for day or night. Plus, it pairs beautifully with winter’s rich navy and charcoal shades. Heading to see family this week? Try this color trend with your favorite CC cream and a few swipes of black mascara for a look that’ll work with anything from cozy sweaters to sophisticated blouses and stay put from dinner through the evening.
