One of the biggest beauty trends this year, from the catwalks and beyond was lipstick. The fall 2014 is trend is a nude lip; seen at the Dior, Valentino and Valli shows, the nude lip is a great accessory to a great outfit, or a powerful eye, as seen at Atelier Versace. So what do you need for the perfect nude lip?
How to start…
A good lip needs to be perfectly scrubbed and buffed. Each night, use a scrub for a perfect lip. Lush, Philosophy and Bliss, are scrubs to try. To buff your lips, avoid a glossy/perfumed balm. Burt’s Bees, Vaseline and Carmex are great, whilst Malin & Goetz, Ren and Dr Bronner are suited more to chapped and cracked lips, and those lips which are in need of a little more care.
The perfect pout…
Despite a nude lipstick being essentially nude, each varies. Some have a little pink, some are just pretty much bare, but for the perfect pout, and if you really can’t go out with lipstick on, then here are my top picks:
