MY CURRENT GO TO NUDE LIPSTICKS
Hi my lovelies!
I am a HUGE fan of lipsticks. I own over 40 shades ( I ran around my house trying to collect them all for an actual head count but I literally have them EVERYWHERE that it was impossible to find them all. I have them in the bathrooms, in the car, a few options in all my handbags, they’re on my bedside table and sometimes in my boyfriends bedside table drawers much to his frustration ha!) and as much as I love them all, I find myself always reaching for a nude. Nudes are easy to pair with any outfit, they can be easily mixed together to create your own special blend and in my opinion, a go to nude lipstick is vital to your make up collection regardless of how advanced you are.
Just like skin tones, nude lipsticks range from very light to very dark with an abundance of undertones. It's crucial to sample before buying as the the wrong undertones for you skin type can leave you looking washed out and drained.
Below, not in any order, are my favourite nudes right now (for my skin tone)!
1 - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Stripped
2 - Jefree Star - Mannequin
3 - NYX Lip Lingerie - Baby Doll
4 - ChiChi - Free Sprirt
5 - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Pure Hollywood
6 - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Crush (my signature lip)
7 - Australis - Colour Inject Lipstick - Minimalism
Nude lipsticks currently take up over half of my lipstick collection. These seven are the just ones I am currently loving and cycling through every time I shoot or go out. For that extra ‘pout’ look I suggest line your lips with a darker shade liner, using a darker nude lipstick around the edges and a lighter nude shade right in the middle.
Remember to always ask for a sample so that you’re not paying for a full item and then getting home to find out it doesn’t work for you!
All my love,
