How to Master the Nude Lip Look

The nude lip look dates back to the 1960’s when pasty-white lips were paired with over-the-top jet black eyeliner and mascara. Since then, the look of nude lips has gone to extremes: from matching the lip color to the skintone, to the deep, chocolate brown shades from the 1990s, with some old-school makeup tips along the way (“mix concealer with lip gloss!”)

How to find a shade for each skintone:

Very Fair (with a milky undertone) – soft baby pink
Fair – rosy-beige
Light (olive undertone) – pink or beige
Olive (warm, gold undertone) – soft peach, creamy pink-beige or caramel with a glossy finish
Olive (cool, pink undertone) – sheer pink
Tan – glossy, shimmery nude
Medium – caramel, warm beige, coral or a pink that’s lighter than the skin
Caramel – beige-caramel
Mocha – rosy-pink mauve or caramel-rose
Dark – rosy-brown with faint gold flecks or a shade slightly lighter than skintone
Very Dark – toffee, cocoa or chocolate brown with faint gold flecks


Tips and Tricks

-Remember that the goal is to separate the lips from the skin and not match the lip color to the skintone exactly.

-Choose shades that are not too shiny or too matte.

-Prep lips by exfoliating with a gentle lip scrub or clean, damp washcloth. Apply lip moisturizer to avoid the look of parched or ashy lips.

-Put your index finger in your mouth and gently close your lips around it then pull it out, in order to take off the lipstick from inside of your lips. It won't wind up o your teeth

-Take the extra time to apply it with a brush in the morning or before a night on the town to help lipstick stay longer

-Don't forget to start with a clean up your lips gently. You can do by lightly rubbing your lips with a damp washcloth.

Are you a fan of Sustainable Fashion? Do you like to go buy second-hand things and give them a second chance? Or are you one of those people who think that's not cool? Well, let me tell you that I was one of those people, until one day I went into a vintage store and I found a scarf from a very famous Italian brand. Since then I fell in love and became a fan of the Thrift Shops.
