The Perfect Nude Lip

I finally mastered the perfect nude lip!


Since I’ve been noticing the “nude lip” in all the fashion mags lately, I decided to give it a try. I usually go for a natural pink or rose tone in my lipstick and focus on my eyes. In fact, pay very little attention to my lipstick. I will wear the same one for years once I find one that I like.

This season, I’m trying to change it up a bit. I still want to find a bold orange lip color that I like, and I’ve also found myself going with a nude lip a lot lately. I’ve been playing around with a few different products I have in my makeup drawer.

I’m going for the Kim Kardashian signature look since we have similar coloring.

I love how she plays up her brown eyes with bold liner in black and navy blue tones and then she goes with a very subtle nude lip.

My version uses Sonia Kashuk’s Ultra Luxe Lip Gloss in Naked Nude.


I like a gloss because it keeps my lips moist, but I’m planning to pick up a nude shade of lipstick to see how I like a more matte finish. Add that to my long list of beauty products to try!

At first I was layering the nude gloss over other subtle colors of lip liner and lip pencil, but while they were nice, they weren’t really a true “nude lip.” Then I discovered that, happily, all I need is this one product!
