Nude lips are often seen as an easier option compared to a bright lip. A nude lip can feel less daunting for sure, however finding the perfect nude can actually be really tricky. A coloured lipstick can work wonders at brightening up a tired face, the wrong nude can take away too much colour from the lips and drain the face. That said there are some wonderful nudes out there that can complete your look and make you feel great. The maintenance of a nude lip throughout the day is easier (especially under a mask!)
Tips for nude lips
Don’t think about blocking out colour completely – something with a hint of colour can help to brighten. Look at your natural lip colour, a nude with a hint of pink for example can be great. A hint of peach or a warm brown – just something so the nude isn’t flat and unflattering.
A layer of a gloss or balm with a hint of colour over the top can be great to lift a nude.
Another thing to think about is the distance at which you will be seen. For example a wedding – a nude might look great close up but how will it read in a photograph? Nude lips can often be ‘lost’ in a photo so check how your colour works in different situations.
If you are going quite nude, think about adding some colour on the cheeks to lift and brighten that way.
A lip pencil can be a great option for a nude lip – use it to enhance your lip shape and add strength without adding colour. A layer of balm over the top will stop it looking dry.
