Charlotte has spent over 28 years studying the nuance of nudes, blending cool, warm and neutral shades by hand to contour and define the look of the eyes. Because no two skin tones are the same, Charlotte worked with models of all skin tones, studying her archive of ‘90s nudes against their undertones and overtones to create universal super nudes that mimic nature’s true depth and tone!

The NEW! SUPER NUDES work for all complexions, creating the most natural looking version of you. Unlike other nudes that can make your complexion look washed out, with ashy, yellowy, grey or green undertones, these natural-looking shades flatter your complexion, whether you have fair, medium, or deep skin — from cool to warm!

The Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette is the perfect palette of easy, earthy, nude primary colors that allow you to play with light, shade and glow sending the eyes forward, making them look bigger and brighter! It’s all about playing with light and shade to cheat the shape and look of the eyes! The fresh, neutral taupe and bone shades illuminate and bring the eyes forward, making them look bigger and brighter, while the rich smokey black add depth and definition for a super feline ‘90s supermodel gaze!
