Nude lipsticks. Probably one of the most hyped up topics on the makeup blogosphere and all over Youtube. We all love our nude lip with a sexy smokey eye. However...
I have tried and tested many nude lippies on the market and am I the only one who can't wear cult favourites like Revlon Soft Nude, or NARS Turkish Delight without looking like a goon? Obviously not all lipsticks are universally flattering on all skin types.
So for all the olive/yellow toned/tanned skinned ladies out there I thought I'd share my favourite nude lip colours that I love most. Coincidentally they are all from MAC!
Calm Mode | Myth | Viva Glam Gaga II | Shy Girl | Chai
2.) Myth (Satin) is a light pinky neutral colour. Honestly it looks way too chalky on its own ... aka concealer lips, but I love using it to tone down bright lipsticks/glosses, or even lightly patted on with a tinted lip balm such as Calm Mode. Myth is quite versatile in that it can pair beautifully with a wide range of lip colours and textures. I think it should be in every ladies' collection because you can blend it in to create an infinite range of lip looks!
3.) Viva Glam Gaga II (amplified) is a neutral toned brownish beige lipstick. It is the perfect neutral nude colour for me. I don't wear it very often, since I prefer pinky nudes or even peachy nudes. But if I were ever to opt for a true nude nude then this would be it!
4.) Shy Girl (Cream Sheen) is a creamy peachy nude with a subtle shimmer. I tend to opt for this in the Summer when I want to look effortlessly sun kissed. I absolutely love the colour, even though the texture is a little hard to wear since it easily settles into the cracks of your lips. Just make sure you moisturize your lips thoroughly before you apply.
5.) Chai (Lipglass) is a neutral brownish lipgloss. I love that it is so pigmented that I can use it alone. But sometimes I use it over Myth like I did here to get an even more true beige nude lip.
What are your favourite nude lipsticks? I'm always on the hunt for the perfect new shade...
