How To: Simple Nude Lip.


Yep, you read it correctly. While everyone else is raving about bold, out there lips, I've fallen for sultry nudes (lips that is). It's probably not the best pick for the cold months as nude lipstick shows up every millimetre of uncared for lips but I think I've nailed the products that will see us through. 

It's all about prep, the only time I pay any attention to looking after my lips is in winter - probably because I become more aware of them and their drying ways. I recently bought the LUSH Popcorn Lip Scrub, a product that I could never live without now. Morning and night (and throughout the day if it's really, truly essential) I apply a little of this to my lips and scrub, it's not as messy as it sounds as the sugar isn't soaking with the oil so it can be easily wiped (or licked) away. 
Next up, one of my favourite and most reliable lip balms is the NUXE Reve De Miel Lip Balm stick, it's less messy and more hygienic than the pot (although this is perfect for overnight!) and great for on the go. Simply sweep over lips regularly, including after a good scrub, to ensure they're the best they could be in prep for the nude lip that's coming. 

To begin this simple nude lip, I always start with a bit of MAC In Synch Lip Liner, a lovely soft pinky nude which goes perfectly with my chosen lipstick. I line the lips carefully and fill in with the pencil to guarantee some extra long-wear out of the lipstick. 
Next, I apply a small amount of Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 113, a lovely bare matte shade which I've really fallen in love with. For an even more matte look, pat with your finger - or if you are prone to dry lips, slick on a coat of gloss.

How easy was that? Four steps to Lana Del Rey lips. What do you reckon?

  3. That look suits you. Do you think the Nuxe lip balm stick version is as hydrating as the pot?

  21. I started out going bold lip-wise at the beginning of Autumn but I have reverted back to my nude loving ways, and I'm jealous that my name isn't Kate so I can have personalised lipsticks lol xxx

  23. I've been looking for the perfect nude lippie and couldn't find one that I liked, but I hadn't seen the Kate lippie. Have you tried the Lush Mint Julips lip scrub? It tastes like After Eights! Great post, thank you x

  24. I've noticed a massive change in my skin including lips since the weather has gotten much cooler. I'm gonna have to bob into Lush and get that popcorn lip scrubKatie xo

  25. You seriously pull off the nude lip! I've never felt like i could
    pull it off but i think that's to do with my skin tone! But now it's getting colder and I'm getting paler I
    may give it a go again - definitely agree with it's all about the prep!

    Might try a nude lip one day soon x

  26. I love nude lips but I find it washes me out unless I do a very strong eye or lots of contouring. Do you have any tips?
