3 Steps To The Perfect Nude Lip

Are you still trying to master the nude lip? Or wanting to give it a try? A Mac Consultant advised me and I’m excited to pass along the tips. I love Mac products, so I am a little biased. 

First, I will say I was a bit shocked when I got home and tried to do it myself. My lips look like I had just put concealer on them. I didn’t realize the key is in the lip liner that I decided not to purchase. I found myself running back out to find a lip liner that would work. A true nude lip is similar to the color of your skin and is a bit shocking at first if you are used to some color on your lips. 


Here is some background on my complexion – brunette with medium toned skin and green eyes. Different complexions may require a slightly different color, which I am sure any make up artist can recommend or even our fellow VG Blogger, Makeup by Megan (sorry to put you on the spot).

Here is what I use…

Step 1: Two Faced Perfect Lips in Perfect Nude
Line your lips and don’t be scared to color in your lips with this pencil.  It will help the lipstick stay longer.


Step 2: Mac Crème D’Nude
Apply to lips.


Top with lip gloss to give your lips some shine and pop.  Plus this is a great gloss to use alone.


A nude lip goes perfectly with smoky eye makeup for a night out on the town! Dare to go nude? Tag us on instagram @VerbalGoldBlog and show us your best nude lip.

    • Hey Jenn! Definitely give nude lipstick a chance, I've been loving it especially with smoky eye makeup at night. If you are wanting to start wearing lipstick but don't want to splurge, try Revlon Colorburst. You can get these anywhere and they are great lipsticks. They come in about every color now too –
