Today I thought I’d do a quick round up of all things nude. More specifically nude lipsticks.
Quite frankly, I can’t recall when exactly that I jumped onto the nude lipsticks bandwagon. I recently re-organised my make up collection, you know the whole new year declutter jazz, and very quickly it became apparent to me that I have quite a fair share of nude lipsticks collection.
Obviously, there will be others who own more, but considering that I can’t even recall when my love for nude lipsticks started, I was rather surprised by the number of these stashed in my make up collection.
Looking at the photo above, I reckon the Tom Ford in shade 07 Pink Dusk must have been the first nude lipstick I procured – it’s the most used followed by the one next to it, Bitch Perfect by Charlotte Tilbury. I bought Brown Sugar from Laura Mercier following a make-over session but I have to say it’s tad too pale for me. But it’s a perfect shade when I have crazy smokey eyes.
The Clinique Cute Pop from the Pop Matte range is definitely my current favourite. Finally the two from Bobbi Brown are in the shades Sandwash Pink and Bobbi. The latter is a limited edition from their 25th Anniversary range which was released in 2016.
I personally find choosing the right shade of nude is a tricky business. Too light, you may look washout and pale and too dark it may not be the nude shade that you envisioned. My top tip is to always try it in store before purchasing and over time you will be able to work out the pefect nude shade for you. As cliche as it may sound, the perfect nude is your lips but better!
If you have any tips on choosing the right nude shade, do share. I would love to hear them. x
