Q: I am African-American with a caramel complexion, and I love the "nude look." What shades do I need to obtain it?

A: We asked celebrity makeup artist Matin Maulawizada to give you customized product picks: Use a very sheer foundation (such as Revlon Skinlights Foundation in Caramel) all over your face. Then sweep Physicians Formula Pearls of Perfection in Bronze over your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin, add black mascara to your lashes and finish with Laura Mercier Bare Beige Glace on your lips.
