Go Nude...With Your Lips


Every time the weather warms up all I almost immediately start to gravitate towards nude anything (involving clothes, accessories and makeup, that is - take your mind out the gutter!).  I'm especially into the nude lip though - I think it all started when I got a nude lipstick sample in my Birchbox.  

Even though this looks seems pretty easy it actually requires a decent amount of steps - I know kind of annoying and this isn't for you who don't like to spend some time on your makeup - you might just be stuck with an unperfect lip.  In just 5 simple steps and with 4 products you too can achieve the perfect nude lip:

Step 1:  Exfoliate your lips - I got this Sugar Lip Polish this past winter and am OB-SESSED                              (seriously you need to get this for more than just doing your lips. 

Step 2:  Cover your lips with your concealer (this ensures you start from an even base)

Step 3:  Line your lips with nude lip liner 

Step 4:  Cover lips with a nude lipstick

Step 5:  Go over with a nude gloss or a clear gloss if you don't want to add any more color

Voilá you have perfect nude lips and all you need to do to maintain them is bring your lipstick and gloss with you (I mean you'll serioulsy have to maintain them because everyone will want to kiss your lips because they will look so perfect!).  

Sugar Lip Polish //Secret Concealer // The Nude Lip Liner // Lip Glacé // Rouge Volupté

I obviously had to list some of my other must have nude lip products - you can never have too many right?!

  11. Great roundup of products. One of my go-to nude lipsticks is MAC Viva Glam II. I have to be really tan or use a lot of bronzer so it doesn't make me look washed out, but I love the color so much that it's a risk I'm willing to take. :) Have a great weekend!
