It’s been a while since I have posted a beauty look here on Stuff She Likes. But with the change of the season and daylight savings finally here… Hallelujah!, I thought it would be the perfect time to chat about an easy no fuss beauty look for spring that I am loving.
Now let me stress that all nude lips are not created equal just as all lips and lip colors are not the same. So step #1 is figuring out the color and undertone of your natural lips. Some people have cocoa colored lips, some rosy pink, some caramel, some beige and believe it or not your skin color may not always determine the undertone of your lips. Ever wonder why that perfect red your friend wears looks so bright on her and so dull on you? It’s the undertones. Despite my pinkish olive skin my lips have purple undertones.. Which means for me lipsticks with blue or purple undertones aren’t always the best.
So when it comes to this seasons perfect nude… where do you start? As so stated above.. start with your undertones. A nude should brighten your face not make you look like a corpse. Above I am wearing a nude that has pink and beige elements to completely erase the slight purple hue in my natural lips..
Okay now you are wondering ..How the hec would I know what the undertones of my lips are. Do what I did. I asked a professional. I headed straight to the local MAC makeup counter and asked a seasoned make up artist. They look at all kinds of lips all day long. The awesome folks at the Nars counters also always know what they are talking about.
Okay now here is the fun part.. I have put together a list of my favorite nudes for Spring.. Happy Shopping!
