Master the Nude Lip
Nude lips have swayed from a trend to a classic look worn by celebrities at nearly every award show recently. They look amazing when trying to downplay makeup while rocking extra smokey eyes, long false lashes, or super obvious blush; the best part about them is that they work with any skin tone. Whether you’re pale, medium, or extra tan, a nude lip is universally flattering!
Master the Nude Lip by following these easy steps:
First, if your lips are dry or chapped, make sure to exfoliate your puckers with a lip scrub. Nude shades are notoriously unforgiving when it comes to providing any type of coverage.
When choosing products, make sure to take your skin tone, lip tone, and where you’re going into account. When you’ve chosen your color, choose a gloss and a stick so you can layer or wear one of the two alone.
If you’ve decided to rock a sheer gloss, try blotting on a layer of your foundation first to give the gloss something to stick to. After, apply a liner in the same shade as your lips for an effect that will be a little more dramatic. Finally, swipe on your shade.
A lot of women complain that wearing a nude lip shade makes them look washed out. If this is the case, you’re probably wearing a shade that’s a little too pale for your complexion, or you’re not playing up the rest of your features. When you’ve chosen a lip tone, apply a blush, a liner, and a mascara that will make your eyes stand out. For fair skin, choose a light or peachy nude to add warmth; if you have medium skin, try a pink and rosy nude to make skin look brighter; and if you have dark skin, choose a bronze or caramel color to give your skin some dimension.
As far as finish, stick to glosses and creamier lipsticks. Matte ones can look chalky and unpolished.
