One of the strongest makeup look to come out of New York fashion week so far is the minimalist. Whether it be nude lips at Victoria Beckham, neutral nails at Zac Posen (and Derek Lam and Thakoon), white nails at Rag & Bone, barely there makeup at Altuzarra and Charlotte Ronson and clean, natural hair at Jill Stuart; this Spring is looking like a beautifully plain one. There's an emphasis on strong brows and contouring on the face, with nude (and matte) nails reigning supreme. In this week's colour story, we're taking our cues from the runway and going back to basics. Just remember that this isn't about no makeup, this is about nude makeup with a dash of dewy, highlighted cheekbones to boot — all hail the minimalist.
