Beauty Buff: Let's Get Nude


Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip: StingRaye, $6.00

The search is always on for a classic red lip. For me, that ship has sailed. Red is a beautiful color that looks fantastic on everyone, but me. Not that I can’t find a good red.  I have four-hundred- zillion shades of red lipstick just hankerin for a night on the town. The problem is, one step outside my door and I have it on my chin, my clothes, the steering wheel, my dog , your dog—you get the picture.

I’m more of a nude gal.

But, nudes can be tricky as well. If you don’t get it right, you’ll look washed out or like someone slathered a wad of silly puddy on your mouth. Not attractive.

Nudes will always be a thing. So, here are some helps to get that nude lip to look it’s best—or any lip for that matter.


MaryKay Satin Lips Set, $18


Lips should be part of your skin care routine. I don’t do it every day but, I do try to do it at least once a week. My all time favorite product for this is Mary Kay Satin Lips. It comes with a mask and balm, and it leaves your lips baby soft.

A close second for me is a new product from Clinique—Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub and Lip Balm. Or, if you’d rather a multi-tasking product you can also use the same scrub that you use for your face. Just make sure it’s gentle. Your lips need a tender touch.


Clinique Sweet Pots, $19.50

Not So Opaque

Instead, try a more sheer nude that is a shade or two darker than your natural lip color. This trick will help you avoid paste mouth.


MAC Creme D’ Nude, $17 (use with light skin)

Don’t Go All Frosty

There was a time for this lip circa 1986. We want natural so go for a satiny finish. *hint, if it feels good going on, that’s your girl*


Clinique Chubby Stick: Graped Up, $17 (use with olive skin)

Use the Tools Given to You: Your Fingers

Instead of slapping that on straight from the bullet, lightly tap it on the lip with your finger and blot your lips together.

And voila, you’re nude.

Trick or treat? COVID cases are getting scary.

Here in Utah, we live on the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Shoshone, Paiute, Goshute and Ute Tribes. Today we celebrate the people who first called this land home. We remember the struggles and tragedies they endured and recognize the fight for justice and autonomy that Indigenous Peoples still face. ⁠
