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.
