There I've said it. I won't apologise and I won't be ashamed, but nude lips don't really do it for me.
You see at heart, in the depths of my soul I am a bright lip girl. Just the juiciness and ripenss of colour makes me tingle with excitement. The neon lip trend has me in its clutches, and well a red lip is so devilishly delicious.
But even in the midst of this technicolour typhoon I appreciate that some looks need, nay must be accompanied by the nude lip.
There some ladies who just rock this look so well... Jolie, Bardot (in her heyday) and the batty/beautiful Claudia Winkleman. On me I feel like there is something missing. It isn't even about tones, I just feel cadaver-ish and well naked (ironic huh).
My collection of nudes is not so great (well seven lipsticks, six lipglosses and a few pencils for luck - if you call that not much), they are however kit essentials as many brides request the no-makeup/makeup look.
But here's a snapshot of my little collection.
From the top:
Chanel Rouge Coco - 05 Mademoiselle
Estee lauder - Crystal Baby
MAC - Kinda Sexy
MAC - Jubilee
MAC - Twig
Revlon - Soft Rose
Burberry - Rosewood
I have swatched each repeatedly to draw out the colour.
From the top:
Collection 2000 creme puff - Angel Delight
Urban Decay - Wallflower
Ciate (no name came free with Marie Claire)
Revlon - Peach Petal
DuWop - Buttercup
Nars - Chelsea Girl
You can see they are a more pinky nude which I think is more flattering. A light application or with your fingers gives a subtle definition to lips (or cheeks), or add lipliner for a really Pammy Anderson pout.
Tell me what are your nude must haves?
Oh and FYI I don't do gloss either.
