I am always on the hunt for everyday lipsticks that are neutral enough to apply mirror-less and have just enough color to look like I didn’t try too hard. Here are my top nude colors you’ll want to wear everyday.
Is there anything better than a lipstick versatile enough to go with a glam or no makeup look and dependable enough to apply in a jiffy – in those mirrorless moments? As a “always need something on my lips or I look dead” kinda gal, I would argue that there is nothing better. Nothing better. A neutral lipstick is a girls BFF.
Ringing in first is Tom Ford in the shade Indian Rose. If your idea of Tom Ford Beauty is as fabulous as your idea of his fashion designs, you are on the right track. This luxurious lip color is the perfect balance of cool, neutral tones. As an extra, you will always be proud to tote it around with you everyday.
Next up, we have Charlotte Tilbury “Pillowtalk.” I am ashamed it took me so long to get on this Pillowtalk train because ladies and gents, it is THAT good. I am on the pillowtalk train 100% and by that I mean, I have the lip liner, the lip gloss, and the lipstick. Charlotte Tilbury is a celebrity makeup artist turned beauty brand and if this is any inclination, she KNOWS nude lip colors for every skin tone. Pillowtalk has 3D pigments in it that make your lips appear visibly larger. Jackpot, am I right? The colors used in Pillowtalk reflect ambient light and that is how your lips appear fuller!
My go-to lip color for the longest amount of time goes to the Tarte Lippie Lingerie Matte Lip Tint in the shade Envy. Yes, I even wore this on my wedding day! (I know you are nosy like me, so go ahead and check out my pics linked here) These lippies are just the right amount of pigmented. I usually apply a light layer of Tarte lippie and then rub it in with my finger. This creates the perfect effortless, oh-my-lips-always-look-this-good look.
As we move down the pricing scale (but don’t worry, NOT the quality scale), I bring your attention to NYX Professionals Powder Puff Lip Cream in the shade Squad Goals. Like I said, I am always on the hunt for a good staple/neutral lip and this mission applies not only department stores & Sephora, but also to Target and other drugstore beauty aisles. I discovered this NYX lip at Target and not only is the shade the perfect mauvey-berry but I am also very into the applicator. It leaves room for error aka you will never have those harsh lipstick lines with this puff lip cream! Next time you run into Target, check this NYX product out. They are one of my go-to for drugstore beauty products.
I hope one of these lipsticks suit you for a go-to everyday lip and one that you will want to wear all day until you hit the bottom of the tube! The key is finding one that won’t wash you out, but doesn’t look overdone after applied. These lip colors in this blogpost can be perfect for a wedding day, homecoming dance, or a quick trip to the grocery store.
