The season is calling for either a bold or bare pout. We've seen many pretty celebrities painting on the nude lips....Fergie, Leona Lewis, Carrie Underwood, Penelope Cruz, Mary J. Blige, and the list goes on.
Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock has been glossing up with a nude lip for several red carpet events, and then wowed her fans with a very strong, red lipstick when she took home her Oscar recently.
You can wear bare and bold lipsticks but you have to be very careful, in both beauty respects.
Let's be frank here---red lips are not easy to pull off. But then again, going nude isn't so simple, either. You can look washed out and even ill, if you haven't mastered wearing the right shade.
Our simple beauty tip: Experiment with going nude this spring and summer. Try on a few nude lipsticks, liners, or glosses until you nail the most complimentary 'beige-y-ness' for you. There is a nude shade for every woman, but it might take a few tubes until you find the perfect one.
1. Cover Girl Wetslicks AmazeMint lip gloss in Freedom of Peach
($6.25, drugstores). This shade has a little more of a color punch to it.
2. Clinique Defining Liner in Berry Nude ($14, fine dept. stores like Macy's). This is very bare, hardly there. A nice natural look.3. Bobbi Brown Sunset Nude lipstick ($22, bobbibrowncosmetics.com). A warm shimmering nude shade that will show off your smile. Bobbi Brown is a genius at perfecting the natural look.
