A Few Faves: Nude Lips
There’s really nothing like a good nude lip. Whether peachy, pinky, or neutral-toned, it’s a no-fail lip outfit once you find your perfect shades and dress accordingly. For skin tone reference, I’m shade 345 in Fenty foundation which is described as “tan skin with warm olive undertones.”
Here are a few of my favorite products to execute a standout nude lip:
I’m a huge fan of lip liner ESPECIALLY with a nude lip. I feel like liner to a nude lip is what a slight right shadow is to basic word art. It doesn’t change the essence of the look, but it adds enough oomph to make it a “lewk.”
ColourPop lip liners are crazy smooth, which is great for lip lining beginners, and I love this shade “BFF” for a nude lip. Plus, you can’t really beat the price point. $5? Are you kidding? We stan!
I also really love doing an all-over lip liner and just adding gloss. Ease is key. My current fave right now for that method is Daytime Nude by RMS Beauty. Another great liner for this? This lip crayon by Trèstique in Florence Fig.
If you’re looking for a wonderful liquid lip, honey, this post is not for you. I hate them and I’m okay with it. When a matte look is the mission, I’m a days-of-old slick of the bullet and blot type of gal.
This warm pink nude shade by Ilia is gorge and can truly fit any skin tone. It’s name, “The Brides”, is more than proper for its demureness.
NYX’s Butter Lipsticks hold their own in my makeup bag. For 6 bucks, their texture and wear are fantastic. Tan Lines, which is a nude brown with pink undertones, and Root Beer Float, which leans towards mauve, are two of my favorite nude shades from the collection.
…and when I’m feeling fancy, my go to is Pat McGrath’s Mattetrance in Venus Furs, a sultry rosy nude. Listennn, these lipsticks are GOODT!
I adore a glossy, nude lip. I mean, who doesn’t want to look youthful, plump, and hydrated? I make no secret about the fact that I’m obsessed with Fenty Beauty’s Gloss Bomb - and all 3 shades are killer for your nude lip combos.
If it’s not Fenty, right now it’s Belle En Argent Lip Luire in Bored Now. Don’t be alarmed by how the hue appears pictured. The gold-pink reflects are killer.
