Proving that beige need not be synonymous with boring, this season's take on the neutral makeup palette is both intricately nuanced and unexpectedly dynamic. Whether at the fall fashion shows, where makeup artists used shades of chocolate, beige, rose, taupe and tan to structure the face and create illusions of shadow and light, or in the seasonal color statements of various beauty brands, neutral tones are making a major comeback.
"This color story is right for fall, because it's very relevant for the times we are living in," says Chanel's creative director, makeup artist Peter Philips. "These shades don't distract, they enhance. They are not 'funny' shades, no 'follies.' You can easily play with intensity, from delicate and light to dramatic and dark."

"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
