While bright pouts are getting plenty of attention nowadays, sometimes keeping things light is our best option. Case in point: Maja Salvador's retro ‘90s brown lip, which may have just singlehandedly made nude lipstick a definite must-try again. But because in real life, a barely-there lip color is one of those makeup looks that seems simple in theory, though there's an art to pulling it off, we've got tips for you:
Nailing that "no makeup" look requires figuring out shades that not only complement your skin tone but also create dimension, without being as obvious as a statement red lip. Women with medium skintone like Maja’s have a lot more leeway when it comes to this type of lipstick. You can go both for a darker nude, or a lighter nude so your lips don’t disappear. Provided you’ve found the right shade and formula to suit you, there’s genuinely no way you can go wrong.
Looking for your own neutral makeup picks? Here are some stellar nude lipstick picks that you can try:
1) Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie in Honeymoon Glow 2) Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Discreet 3) Mac Frost "O" Purplish-red with Golden Pearl 4) Revlon HD in Snapdragon 5) L'Oreal Colour Riche Lip Colour
