Keira goes nude to complement new look

New colour scheme for Keira

29 JANUARY 2009

To go with her beautiful, new chestnut-hued 'do, Keira Knightley has been taking a softly, softly approach to her make-up with pared down tones of beiges and browns to highlight her current colour scheme.

Starting with a thick, matte foundation topped with powder for that smooth look that hides all imperfections, from spots to dark circles, a dark-pinky beige powder blush is then swept along the cheekbones to emphasise her bone structure.

Chocolate-brown eyeshadow is smoothed over the upper eyelid and is doubled up with a dark brown pencil around the lower lashes, too. And a thicker line of kohl pencil is smudged along the upper lashes, extending slightly out at the corners.

The whole look is set up with a neutral beige, creamy lipstick for which Maybelline Moisture Lipstick's Naked Beige collection, currently just £3.88 each at boots.com, is perfect.

Try Dessert Bloom to replicate Keira's colour, but the six-strong collection of shades should contain a colour perfect for every complexion, from the Pinky Beige for light skin tones to the Chocolate Temptation suited to darker skin.
