HOW-TO WEAR A NUDE LIP
1. Prep: It’s important to make sure the lip is fully hydrated and exfoliated when wearing a nude lip. It will show any imperfections the lip may have. To do this, apply a generous amount of lip balm and let it soak in for a few minutes. Then blot off the excess. Now you are ready for concealer. Using your finger, apply a concealer that is the same tone as your skin. Cover the lips completely. Finally, set the lips by lightly dusting them with powder.
2. Outline: Define the lip with a lip pencil THAT IS THE SAME COLOR AS YOUR LIP. This is important because you don’ t want to have that “washed out” look. Trace the outline of your lips and fill in with a thick line towards the center of the lips.
3. Color: When choosing a lipstick, pick a color that has peachy undertones. Stay away from the really pale colors. You want the lips to look as natural as possible. I recommend only using a matte lipstick for this look. If you are like me, I always want to my lips to be covered in gloss. In the next step, the gloss will give you the healthy shine you are wanting. But for the lipstick itself, STAY WITH A MATTE.
The key to this look is finding the right nude shade of color for your skin tone. If you have fair skin, stick with a peachy-beige colors. For medium tones, stay with the peachy pinks. If you have dark skin, go for the honey or caramel colors.
4. Gloss: Choose a gloss that is either clear or neutral. Since you used a matte lipstick, it’s okay to choose a gloss that has just a hint of shimmer to it. But don’t go overboard. ONLY APPLY GLOSS TO THE CENTER OF THE LIPS & voila!
Hint: A glossy nude lip really compliments a smokey dramatic eye.
