Perfect Nude Lip

  |   By Michelle Rosen

Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer by NARS

A nude mouth oozes sex appeal.  That is of course, if you are wearing the right shade.  There is nothing more unattractive than a washed out, chalky nude lip. The last thing you want is your mouth looking like it has been erased from the rest of your face! This is where Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer by NARS comes to the rescue.


Perfect Nude Lip

I have been using it for over a decade and it is my absolute go-to for the perfect nude lip.  For some reason this shade looks like it will be all wrong in the package, but it seems to work on almost all skin tones.  It is nude without being too nude. It is a nice balance of not too pink and not too peach, but can go either way by layering a lip shade of your choice underneath.

If you don't have a neutral shade of lipstick (or liner), a little trick for before you apply a nude gloss is to dab a bit of your concealer across your mouth with a sponge or your finger, as if you are applying a light coat of lip balm. It will help knock back the natural colour of your lips and give you a nice clean canvas to start with—especially for those who have particularly dark pigment to their lips. As for how to wear a nude mouth on your wedding day: My favourite way is to pair it with a smoldering smoky eye.  Amazing for an evening wedding. It's the perfect combination of modern, classy and sexy.
