Nude VS Matte: Which is your best lip look this Fall?


While you could be forgiven for thinking that a nude lip look could wash you out (I mean, don’t we usually ADD color to our lips with our makeup?), a nude lip is classic, gorgeous and looks good on everyone.

Shade Perfection

Getting exactly the right shade is the trick, and requires some experimentation on your part! Nude lips look best when the color is one shade lighter or darker than your complexion, rather than an exact match.

Why Nude?

And, why do you want this perfect nude lip shade? It is a super wearable look that can make your eyes look extra bright, and make your lips appear fuller while still looking natural. When you go for a nude lip color, you can really go to town with eye makeup intensity, as well as bright clothing near the face, and all with a natural, modern twist.

For Drama Around the Eyes:

Tons of falsies, cat-eye liner, and a pale, washed-out nude lip is a surprisingly wearable look that makes a huge impact.

Look for your best shade in NARS Lipstick for a long-wearing finish, rich, vivid shade ranging from neutrals to high-fashion hues and a patented blend of conditioners and antioxidants hydrates, nourishes and protects lips.

For Fabulously Natural:

Tone your lips down with a tiny bit of foundation or concealer, then add balm on top for the easiest nude lip that’s actually natural.

Try a Bobbi Brown Lip Color. The classic creamy, semi-matte lipstick of Bobbi Brown. From pink to red, all lip colors consist of brown tone that is an ideal natural lip color. Infused with Vitamin C, E and beeswax, the non-drying formula offers full-color coverage and comfortable, long-lasting wear.

For Metallic Magic:

A muted matte formula plays perfectly off metallic shadow. A bit of shine also works great with a deep blue on the eyes.

A Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Matte Lipstick shade is perfect for this look. Perfectly opaque, it envelops a woman’s lips in color while keeping lips hydrated and soft. Creates a perfectly defined, true matte lip look in a single application. The exceptionally creamy texture prevents drying.

For Dewy Skin:

Nude lipstick and dewy skin are, as always, a match made in heaven. Try a high octane shine with Dolce & Gabbana The Lipgloss Intense Colour Gloss that blends a mirror-like shine for full, sensuous lips.
