Nude. What once appeared to be a fad has now become the hottest trend in makeup. What is absolutely fantastic about that perfect nude lip is the shade can serve two purposes – you can either sex up a look with high gloss and definition or you can tone down a look that is already vamped up with a highly contoured face or smoked out eye. It really is the perfect compliment to any face of the day you are trying to achieve!
As a lover of red lips till I die, getting on board the nude lip train was hard. When you have full lips and you are used to seeing them pop easily with a bright shade like red, finding enough product to build up your nude can be a never-ending task. And it has taken me a few product tries. But that is what is so fun about nude! It’s really about the combo you want to create and different products offer different incentives. You can go with or without a liner, with or without a gloss, there really is no wrong way to do it. AND even better, I have found that nude shades that are more pastel and pink-based have really helped someone like me branch out into pinks in general. A few years ago, I could have never pictured myself reaching for pop star shades like pink, but Miss Nude changed all that for me.
The reason for this post? Well, I have finally done it! I’ve found my go-to Nude combo. Now, it took some playing around with nudes and a heap of products to do it, but I’m grateful. In doing so, I found different combos I can work with for different looks, but the one below is officially my staple.
