Today it’s time to see how to get nude lips.
When I say nude lips I assume the mainstream sense, therefore I mean nude beige lips. Because naturally our lips are not beige, of course. So, if you want to achieve a natural look you won’t reach nude beige lipsticks, but your “my lips but better” lipstick: this colour will be the same of your natural lips, so you’ll have a natural no-make up look, natural but better.
On the other side, nude lips traditionally is not a natural look, but an artificial effect. It is the so called “concealer” effect lips. So pay attention when you choose this look, because it requires bold eyes and a strong face shape. The result will be really noticeable.
How you can choose your right nude – beige – lipstick? A mua some times ago told me that the right nude lipstick is at least one shade darker than your skin. Mind that you want pale lips, paler than your natural lip colour which – I hope – is not beige
Here you can see my favourite nude shades to achieve the perfect nude lips look.
- P2 Perfect Look Lip Liner in 051 Beige
- Inglot Lipstick in 263 (cream finish, Mac Creme d’Nude’s nicer version)
- Mac Lipstick Viva Glam Gaga 2 (amplified)
- Mac Lipstick A Perfect Day (amplified)
- Mac Lipglass Viva Glam Gaga 2
Pay attention to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before using this kind of lipsticks, because thet tend to emphasize dry frackles. Inglot lipstick is the lightest and the more difficult to pull it off, imho, if you don’t have extremely fair skin; it lasts well for about 5 hours but you have to re-apply if you eat or drink. Both Mac lipsticks have a great finish: they are creamy, opaque and last all day long. I think that P2 lip liner and Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipglass compliment well this kind of shades.
So, nude lips: yay or nay?
