Nude lips (when perfected) is the perfect way to make bold statement in a subtle way.

Nude lips give off a classy, understated glam to a makeup look, the look also comes off as though one hasn't tried so much where in the real sense a lot of 'work' and time has been put into creating the look.

Step 1

Exfoliate the lips

You don't want a flaky surface to start out on so exfoliate the lips for a soft, kissable feel, nude lips show flakes and dry skin so make sure they are in perfect shape. Use an old toothbrush or a lip scrub to gently exfoliate all those dead skin cells off the lips

Step 2

Apply Foundation/Concealer

Before you apply foundation or concealer all over the lips, check for the perfect shade of 'nudes' that work best for your skintone afterwards apply foundation or concealer- one that matches the shade of your skin- all over the lips.

Blend the concealer or foundation well around the corners of your mouth.

Step 3

Apply Lip liner

Line your lips with a lip liner in the exact shade of your skin, this gives the 'nude' illusion but defines the lips. Make sure to also fill the lips with the lipliner.

Step 4

Apply Nude Lipstick

Apply your desired nude lipstick shade. Keep nude moist as against matte ones, get creamy ones to keep the lips moisturized.

Step 5

Apply Gloss

Apply gloss over the lips. Choose clear gloss or slightly tinted nude, by all means ditch the sparkly ones to achieve a 'believable' nude lip look.

Voila!
