Picking The Perfect Nude Lip Shade

Nude lipstick isn't easy to choose or wear, and yet, when it's done right, nude lips are both classic and modern.

Nude lipstick looks wrong when the color is too pasty or pale. Yes, it can look corpse-like. That is why your skin tone matters when you pick up a tube of neutral makeup.

A lot of celebrities wear the dark, smoky eye with a nude lip, including Kim Kardashian, Pam Anderson, and Nicole Scherzinger.

Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell has this beauty advice when you DON'T want a bold pout( In Style mag):

1. Easy on the Application
"Nude will cake up if it's applied wrong, so use a light hand." Spread it out with a lip brush.

2.  One Step-Up on the Color
"A shade one level darker than your natural lips creates subtle contrast."

3. Rosy Hues = Warmth for Fair Skin    
Peachy Beiges = Bring Out Medium Tones    
Copper = Sparkles on Darker Complexions

Covering a large spectrum of replica watches sale allows us to better understand the ecosystem within which we work. Anyone with some experience in the watch world knows that price cheap replica watches doesn't always equate to value, and so much marketing and other non-mechanical elements go into why a watch is priced one way or another. I am a purist who focuses entirely on the watch itself. The lifestyle rolex replica uk around the brand, the other people who wear it, the age of the company making it, and related factors mean almost nothing to rolex replica sale me. I judge each timepiece for what it is independently – and that allows me to have an open rolex replica uk mind. For this reason, aBlogtoWatch is more apt to discuss new brands or fake cartier novel designs while the more conservative contingent among us do not.
