Nude Lipsticks/Liners for WOC

August 31, 2020

Over on Instagram this past week, I shared that I wanted to post a blog post every day this week that was beauty related 🙂 I’ve decided that this week will be all about makeup and next week will be all about hair! To kick things off, I’m going to give you all a list of some of my favorite nude lippies that I use.

To create the perfect nude lip, you must have a GREAT liner. I’m either reaching for NYX Urban Café, NARS Mambo ( which is an eyeliner!), or I occasionally grab for the Sephora brand liner in Molasses! When applying my liner, I always fill my lips in with the liner color as well before applying my lipstick.

The lipstick that I’ve been grabbing for the most as of late is the Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Bare! I mean, this color is a dream. I discovered it thanks to my friend Ashley Brooke when we did our makeup IG live video. Besides Bare by Bobbi Brown, I also love Christy by Pat McGrath + Jasmine Mocha by Jill Stuart Beauty. HET LOO by NARS, which will be more of a creamy sheer lipstick, is also a great option! Jasmine Mocha by Jill Stuart Beauty also falls into the creamy lipstick category.

After the liner + lipstick are applied, its time to top it off with a gloss! I only have two lip gloss’ that I reach for, and they are NARS No Regrets + NYX Praline.

What are some of your favorite nude lip combos? Leave yours in the comments 🙂
