How to: The Nude Lip

So everyone knows nude is the colour to be rocking on your lips right now, thanks to Miss Kylie Jenner and her plump pout. I have tried numerous nude lipsticks in the hunt for the perfect shade, the amount of different nude shades available in itselfs is a challenge, but I think I may have found the ultimate colour. Keep reading to found out what I used and how I created this lip look.IMG_1104

Step 1: Taking Rimmel’s Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in 018 Addiction I lined my lips. If you want your lips to appear fuller just slightly overdraw your lips, however don’t overdraw the corners of your lips because you will end up looking like a clown, only slightly over draw on your bottom and top line and remember don’t go too crazy.IMG_1096

Step 3: Using this beautiful L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive lipstick in JLo’s nude (yes a little obsessed with her at the minute) I applied it over the top of the lip liner.IMG_1095
Step 4: For the ultimate finish, use a little concealer and a small angled brush to tidy up the outer corners of the lips.IMG_1094

Dependent on the look you want you could add a clear gloss but for the nude lips I always prefer a matte finish.IMG_1098
