Lead makeup artist James Kaliardos “was inspired by technology and nature for the beauty look at Nicole Miller. The focal point was the eye, a “soft smoky” blend of four purple shades from MAC’s Spoiled Rich palette — Haute & Naughty Too Black on lashes. “I’m using color in a natural way.” To give skin contour and highlight, he utilized Prep + Prime Highlighter pens, Taupe Shape Blush, new for spring. Lips were kept neutral, with Posh Tone Mineralize Lipstick, also new for fall 2013.”

This is actually a much cooler effect (in my opinion) than a sponge gradient look. This is also SO MUCH easier than the sponge gradient! Just select five colors in the same color scheme and paint your thumb the lightest and your pinkie the darkest. Fill in the other nails with colors in between.
