Nude

Go nude! Not as in nudity (ew. mind in the gutter!). I'm talking about your lips! A pale lip is a new great alternative to the bright ones we have been sporting all summer.


Rules: 
(I know, right! Why can't it just be straight forward? Believe me, I'm saving you from a world of hurt. And beauty blunders.)
Darker skin can go more brown-toned than lighter skin. 
Lighter skin should try colors that have more pink or peach in them  
Avoid gray-based nudes
Avoid chalky colors (ahem, MAC Myth lipstick...)
Make sure your lips are chap-free before doing this trend. We don't want to look like our skin is falling off.









Some favorites:

Lipstick-
MAC Creme de Nude (classic nude)
ELF Natural Nymph (a cheaper version of above)
MAC Hue (pinkier nude)
MAC High Tea (great for darker skin tones)
Gloss-
NARS Turkish Delight (pinkish nude)
MAC C-Thru (JLO's trademark color)
MAC Underage (pinkier)
ELF in Ballet Slippers
