Nude lips!


The perfect nude lip with a taupe tint to it!

My brides who love to go for a “natural” makeup look request this nude lip a lot. I also love this look with a heavy smokey eye, as I like to tone down the lips when I play up on the eyes.

The key step is start with moisturized lips so that the lip liner glides smoothly. I used the lip treatment from motives cosmetics, it leaves your lips very smooth.

For my brides I usually start off with a lip scrub to make sure her lips aren’t peeling, and I follow through using my lipstick layering technique.

For a natural/daytime look, simply line your lips with Motives Cosmetics lip liner in ‘Neutral’. In order for the color to stay put all day, go ahead and fill in your lips with that same lip liner.

Next, apply the Motives Cosmetics lipstick in ‘Silhouette’, and finally clean out the edges with some concealer on a brush!
