The Perfect Nude Lip

As most of you know, I like to keep things pretty neutral – from my outfit and accessories to my make up and lip color.  My favorite thing about a nude lip is that it goes with any outfit, any season and any time of day.  There’s nothing more classic than that!  Also, I love how a nude lip looks with bronzy, sun kissed skin for Summertime, so I thought I would round up a few of my favorites for you today!  (This lipstick in ‘Lush Coconut’ is my absolute favorite for wearing with either a no makeup look or at the beach/pool.  It’s super sheer, but gives you such a pretty, hydrated plump!)
For starters, my hands down FAVORITE lip liner is MAC ‘Stripdown’.  It pairs perfectly with all of the nude lipsticks and glosses listed below.
1. | Anastasia Beverly Hills Gloss in ‘Undressed’ {super pigmented, not shinny, + perfect for layering}

2. | Chanel Hydrating Lipstick in ‘Adrienne’ {has a pinky hue and a shimmery sheen + super hydrating}

3. | NARS Lipstick in ‘Barbara’ {matte, a bit of a darker nude, + stays on really well}

4. | YSL ‘Rouge Pur Couture’ Lipstick in ‘Beige Tribute’ {my favorite nude, super hydrating, + perfect with the liner I mentioned above}

5. | MAC Lipstick in ‘Blankety’ {a lighter nude, very pigmented, + great price point}

6. | Chanel Lip Gloss in ‘Beige Star’ {perfect for layering, has a blush undertone, adds shine to any lipstick}

I’m typically more of a skincare nut than a beauty guru, however, I can spot a good nude lipstick from  across the room.  Any and every time I shop for a new shade, I always end up choosing a neutral out of the bunch.  You literally can’t go wrong with any of these for Summer!  Feel free to comment on my instagram if you have any questions about my nude picks – I’m happy to answer them!
Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

I've been looking for the perfect nude lip and picked up a Nars one based on another fashion blogger's post but it didn't work for me. I love that you gave some nice descriptions, hopefully this helps me find a better one! Thanks!

I love this post!! I've actually JUST started getting into nude lipsticks. (I used to be go big or go home, statement or nothing but chapstick kinda girl) so I loved getting to learn the pics from someone who has more experience with nude lip colors! I own the NYX "Sable" and maybelline's "Nude Lust" but I've been thinking I should add a nicer brand name to the collection and this was a nice guide.

Happy 4th!!

I love to wear nude lipstick/gloss during the summer! One of my favorites is a gloss from Simply Vera by Vera Wang. It's not too sticky, but not too slick.
