How To Do Nude Lips
The first step to creating the perfect pout is starting with the right foundation. For this classic look, create a clean slate on your skin by applying matte, liquid foundation. This will cover imperfections and any discoloration, while minimizing shine. Next, apply a peachy-colored bronzer to your cheeks, to give you a ‘healthy glow’.
For a glamorous, evening look, do a smoky eye (using charcoal, silver, and black eye shadows) in combination with sexy, nude lips. Finish off the look with intense black eyeliner for a heightened effect. This emphasizes your eyes, by downplaying the color of your lips.
Next, apply a creamy concealer all over your lips. Blend with a makeup sponge, to ensure smooth consistency. This will act as a base for your nude lipstick (helping it to last longer), in addition to removing any trace of red tones. Apply nude lipliner around the edges of your lips (creating a precise edge), and fill-in your lips with the liner. As a final touch, apply creamy nude lipstick (with a slight pinkish hue).
