Archive for the ‘Nude Lips’ Category
In keeping with my recent Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Color obsession, I decided to do a lip tutorial using the Naked color since that’s the one I just can’t seem to put down. I love neutral, fleshy-toned lips but hate washed out, nude tones so this hue is perfect. Plus it’s got just the right amount of gloss to make lips look luscious and full.
Since the goal of this look is simplicity, I went easy on the lipliner, opting for a soft color (Cameo by Prestige Cosmetics) that blends in with the natural color of my lips. As for gloss, I used just a dab of Sugarbomb by Benefit to highlight the center of my bottom lip. You can add a sparkly gloss if you want a little more shine, but I decided to keep the shimmer factor down on this one.
As for the rest of the look, I did a little bronzer on the cheeks for color and a light brown smokey eye using the Too Faced Natural at Night Palette. Then I topped it all off with a few coats of Benefit They’re Real mascara and viola – all done!

Nothing is sexier than a sultry, natural looking nude lip. The problem is many nude colors tend to wash skin out, making lips look pale and dull rather than fleshy and inviting. So I came up with my own version that’s semi-nude, with just a hint of pink and brown to bring out the warm undertones in my skin so I don’t look like a corpse. Don’t get me wrong, the corpse look works for a lot of people – mainly those playing extras on Law and Order SVU. But for normal girls such as myself, not so much =)
