Nude lipsticks is one thing I always seem to need when it comes to a shoot. Whether you are going for the no makeup vibe like I did here for my shoot for Scout Cashmere or a strong eye you can never go wrong. A nude lip can totally complete a makeup look making it really wow. To choose one well the choice is endless and so many varying shades depending on your skin tone. Every so often I do post my favourite nudes and this time only one remains from my previous list the rest are new editions. I do pretty much reach for a matt especially when I am shooting as it lasts the distance but also looks amazing on camera. So here is my current fav nude lipsticks:
From the lastest Chanel Coco Codes collection is this gorgeous Le Rouge Crayon Couleur in No 1 nude. It has a more sheer texture that is super hydrating and looks totally gorgeous on. Lips look more luscious and its perfect if you want that no makeup makeup look but with a hint of something on your lips.
My firm favourite of the moment that I literally go for 70% off the time is my new Mac Retro matte liquid lipcolour in Lady Be Good. Make sure you apply lip balm before and during the day so it doesn’t dry out your lips. This shade you can see on my gorgeous model above. Its the perfect nude that looks great on a lot of skin tones and works with a bronze, smokey or nude eye.
The newest to my ever growing nude collection the Maybelline colour sensational shine gloss in coffee kiss. This one is perfect if you love a gloss lip but you are not keen on pops of colour. its more than a clear gloss and has a more brown tone of nude. It also works amazingly over a nude matt lip if you want to add more dimension.
Last up its the only one that has stayed on the nude list the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm. Its a more pink nude that also looks amazing on the paler to medium skin tones. Its super pretty on and brings the whole look together. There are some gorgeous NYX butter lipsticks that I am going to be getting my hands on so watch this space.
