Nude lipsticks are everywhere, and we love it! Not only do nude shades look effortless glamorous but are also super easy to pair with the rest of your makeup. Whether you want a subtle makeup look for brunch with friends or want to go full glam for a dinner date, a glossy or matte nude lipstick will have you looking flawless in no time.
This one is a no-brainer. Nude lipsticks are perfect for when you want to put together a quick makeup look without putting in too much thought. Creamy nude matte lipsticks work great for this look since they seamlessly blend into your lips and do not look thick or goopy. Depending on your skin tone and undertone, look for nude lipsticks that are warm, cool, or neutral. Brown, pink, or peachy nude lipsticks are universally flattering and will suit all different skin tones and undertones. Try the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick in the shade Daringly Nude, a soft creamy matte nude lipstick that is non-drying and comfortable on the lips. Keep the rest of the makeup very simple and non-makeupy. Skip the foundation and use a lightweight, light to medium coverage concealer to cover blemishes and conceal the under-eye dark circles. Add a very subtle flush of colour on your cheeks with a pink or peach blush and add a very light hand of non-glittery highlight on the high points of your face. Liquid illuminators work best for these no-makeup makeup looks as they give you a radiant glow-from-within look. For the eyes, ditch the heavy eyeliners and falsies and just coat your eyes with a thin coat of mascara to add definition to your eyelashes without making them look too voluminous or long. Avoid setting your makeup with too much powder and keep your skin looking dewy and natural to ace this makeup look.
