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