Favourite Nudes

nudes, nudes, nudes. theres nothing like a good nude lip on a day to day basis and as much as I love a red or orange lip, on a daily I go for a nude lip. it works with everything and if it fades a bit and you are just like me, too lazy to touch up, its the perfect way to finish off your makeup. lately, I have been adding a few more nudes into my collection and after years of trying and testing, I can say that I managed to find the perfect nudes for me and my complexion.
when it comes to finding the perfect nude for your complexion you might have to do some testing and really work out what looks good on you. I go for a mid-tone slightly warmer nude. I like pink and brown undertones. nothing too dark or dark brown and nothing too cold or flesh coloured as either of those will wash me out and just, in general, will make me look just a bit weird. so take your time and test what works for you.
when it comes to nude lipsticks I have two favourites and they have been for quite a while. first is the very popular Charlotte Tilbury matte revolution lipstick in pillow talk. it’s such a creamy, yet matte formula and its the perfect mid-tone brown nude. I love it and it is an “my lip but better” shade. the other one is a bit pinker toned lipstick. its a mac matte lipstick in pink plaid.
I’m a total liquid lipstick girl and there are few nudes I have tried and tested and which end up on my lips maybe a bit too often. I love Kat von D everlasting liquid lipsticks. they are so light on the lips and not drying at all and they last for ages on me. one is a terracotta nude which I got a while ago and still love it. its lolita II and its perfect for a warm makeup and for the summer. the other one is quite new to my collection and its more on the brown side and I prefer wearing it when I have very simple makeup. it’s bow n arrow.
a new liquid lipstick formula I added to my collection and routine are the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks. first of all, I love the packaging. it looks so chic and beautiful and the actual product is amazing too. it lasts very well and feels lovely on the lips. the shades I use are very similar. first, we have crush. a soft beige and its the most perfect shade for me. pure hollywood is just a bit more mauve and perfect for days when I feel just very girly.
here we have my favourite nude lipsticks. have you tried any of them? what are your faves?
