Knowing your nudes.

Do you know when nude isn’t nude? When it comes to lips. You can have peachy nude, pinky nude, and true nude. Who knewd?! (eek!)

I’ve always fancied that gorgeous barely there but still polished look that comes from a perfect nude lip. I tried lots of versions and realised that because my lips are quite pigmented, the right nude is the like the perfect pair of jeans, bloody hard work!

Here’s what I ended up with, A No.7 lipliner, as recommended by Lisa Eldridge, a Mac lipstick in Patisserie and a Maybelline gloss. The Mac lipstick has a bit of subtle glitter through it, which I didn’t think I’d like but it does add another dimension, and makes it look less flat.
