nude lips
For days when you want to go a little heavier on the eyes, or if you prefer a more natural make up look, nude lips are the perfect solution. Nude lip shades can be quite a personal thing as they're dependant on your lip colour and skintone, I love the above products as they're universally flattering and work so well together.

The first step I take when preparing for a nude lip is to buff and scrub any dry skin away with Lush Mint Julips Lip scrub. It helps to leave lips smooth and creates the perfect base for your lip products.

Next, applying a rich, hydrating lip balm like Nuxe Reve De Miel will keep your lips plump and nourished. It contains honey, shea butter, sweet almond oil and calendula to moisturise and heal dry lips.

Lip Pencil
Using a lip pencil as a base can prolong lipstick wear time and lasts even if your lipstick does fade. This is also where you can even out your lips and shape them slightly. I like to neaten and even out the lip line, define the cupids bow and fill the entire lip with colour for a long lasting base. MAC Lip Pencil in Boldly Bare is the perfect, creamy pink brown that lasts for hours on the lips and is completely smudge proof.

Lastly, for a natural, dewy finish, a satin formula lipstick like MAC Brave, a pigmented mauve pink or Nars Descanso, a creamy peach pink/nude gives you the perfect barely there shade. The combination of lip liner and satin lipstick ensures that your nude lip will be long lasting and flattering on the lips.

Here's MAC Boldly Bare and MAC Brave worn on my lips.
