I love the look of nude and pale pink lipstick. When I see those make up videos on you tube or the pictures on Instagram from make up artists, I always want to try to recreate that lip look. The reality of my want to create the look and actually doing it, never seem to turn out the way that I imagined. Usually what happens, is the lipstick looks cakey and clumpy. I look like an unfortunate girl who has no friends to tell her how bad it really is. So of course, I immediately remove it and put on my old faithful red lipstick that never lets me down. But WHY can’t I wear the pale pinks and nudes? Or can I….
After some investigative research at Sephora, I learned that I can! Ureaka. The trick that I learned from one of the make up artists at Sephora is that you have to choose a neutral color lipstick, that complements the natural, neutral colors in your skin. The best place on your body to look? The inside of your lip, or your lip color-without lipstick on it. Since you know that color looks good on you, because it is your natural color, find a lipstick, liner or gloss that is in that same hue. Voila! Now you have a nude or pale pink lip that will work for your actual skin tone. You’re welcome 🙂
These natural and pale pink lip colors are great for vacation or when you want to have a natural make up look. I personally love doing a super smokey eye, with a nude lip. It’s a great way todo the smokey eye during the day and really makes the eye pop. Tell me what you think!
