How to Get the Perfect the Nude Lip

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Hey Guys,

So if you're a brown girl like me you know that the likelihood of finding the perfect nude lip is zip to none. You go to the store, be it department or not, and you pick through a pile of pink, peaches, and lilacs, take one of those varieties home only top have it look like you've spread frosting all over your lips.

Yeah, not a cute look. Quick fix to that is to incorporate a handy dandy lip pencil. When you put on the 'perfect nude' you aren't allowing a graceful transition from one color to the next and therefore the result is drastic.

Here in my picture, I have on a wet 'n wild lipstick in Just Peachy (903C) lined with my NK Lip Liner in Cocoa (A717) and I'm using the technique.

Also, here's a more in depth tutorial about this whole process from one of my favorite YouTubers' Jackie Aina (MakeupGameOnPoint).

So that's it guys. The simple tip that will end your search for the perfect nude lippy. TBH, I learned this tip from Jackie and it's a lifesaver! I have a drawer of pink lip products now calling my name. Ha. In the comments below, tell me your essential lip product and I'll check it out. x


  1. That's such a cool technique, and it looks very good on you! I don't think I own any nude colours, just sheer balms. I either go bright and vibrant, or dark and edgy. Think I might pick up a nude lipstick though! Cheers :)
