The Perfect Nude Lipstick (For Those Who Don’t Wear Lipstick)

Lipstick is not my strong suit.

I’ve haven’t wore it for the longest time because I could never find the perfect color. Bright pinks and reds just did NOT look good on me. Every color I applied pulled a rosy pink color that I just couldn’t stand. So I figured I would never find my perfect lipstick and just settled on gloss!

Recently my mindset has changed. While I’m still not drawn to bright pinks and reds, I have found the perfect nude lipstick for the girl who doesn’t wear lipstick! I love the subtle color it adds to my look, and let’s be honest, it makes me feel like a big girl ;)  After sharing this post, I had multiple requests to share the nude lipstick look! So today I’m sharing with you my TWO  favorite nude lipsticks to get the perfect nude lip!

The Perfect Nude Lip

This look is the perfect nude that’s not too nude to the point where your lips look weird, ya feel me? I especially love it with a smokey eye, like you saw in this post!

The Perfect Nude Lipstick (for the girl who hates lipstick!)

Lip liner: NYX Eyebrown Pencil in Taupe (this is actually a brow liner, but whatever!)
Lipstick: Maybelline Nude Lust
Gloss: BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in Trailblazer

This nude adds a little touch of color, and it’s actually my preferred look. It adds the perfect amount of brightness to the lips to make them stand out without it being overkill. Perfect for the girl who isn’t a lipstick fan!

The Perfect Nude Lipstick (for the girl who hates lipstick!)

Lip Liner: NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Natural
Lipstick: Maybelline Wet Shine Lipstick in Honey Glazed (I just learned this is discontinued and I’m crying my eyes out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finding a replacement STAT, but I linked to some leftovers I found on Amazon for you!).
Gloss: BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in Trailblazer

I’ve found layering a gloss over the lipstick makes it feel less like a lipstick. It also gives a little shine, which I personally think adds youth to a look.

It's officially award season! Woo hoo!!! As a total fashion and beauty junkie, I mainly watch award shows just to see the glamorous gowns, stunning makeup, and latest hair trends (and, you know, to see Kanye make a fool of himself, but that's neither here nor there ;) ). I'm constantly amazed by the intricate details of the gowns and precision with hair and makeup, and I sit there in total la-la land wishing I was all dolled up when really I'm on the couch pounding coconut milk ice cream while … [Continue reading...]

Confession time: From the ages 16-23 I chemically relaxed my hair. I know what you're thinking...WHY, Lauren, would you do that!?!???!?!?! Because for my entire life, I absolutely hated my hair with every ounce of my being. My hair was a really weird wavy/curly/frizzy mess that could not be tamed no matter what styling product I used. Chemically relaxing it … [Continue reading...]
