Nude Lip Trend

You can't open a magazine or walk down a makeup aisle without seeing neon flashes of orange, pink or fuchsia lipstick (pigment-saturated shades that we're major fans of, btw). So with all this color, it's near-shocking to see a mouth completely stripped of color, as evidenced by Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian.

From a smoky eye to a pop of color on the lid, anything goes with a light and neutral lip tone. You can even pump up your hair's volume, or binge on bold patterns and colors to balance your bare face. For a nice nude lip of your own, find a clear or barely there lip gloss to soften your lips with slight shine. Love Nectar and Beaux from MAC are both perfect to wear alone. If you feel too naked wearing nothing else, find a light neutral or pink lipstick that looks bare but most importantly beautiful!

A couple of my favorites are MAC Honeylove, Cherish & Viva Glam V. My # 1 lipstick hands down is......... Peachstock.
