When I was recently on the Tory Burch blog, I fell in love with this image of her. Such a natural, classic beauty. I also love her makeup look in this photo, too. It’s what a natural makeup look is supposed to look like. She’s wearing makeup, but it’s not wearing her. The colors compliment her skin tone and hair and she looks polished and refined. And the lips are what a nude lip should look like. Not some pasty white lipstick that give the lips the look of death and call it the “look of the season” because someone like Kim Kardashian is wearing it. Ugh.
I took this photo to the Chanel counter and said – THIS is the lip look I want, but what works in the tones for me and my skin tone. Remember, just because one natural tone looks good on someone doesn’t mean it looks good on everyone. Find YOUR natural shade. Tory and I do NOT have any similar color traits – she has brown eyes, I have green. She has blond hair I have brown, she is more medium skin toned I am light. With all that into consideration this is what Heather came up for me.
She chose one of the new shades from the Chanel Rouge Allure Intense Lip Colour #124 Ambigue. When I first looked at it without putting it on, I thought it would be way too dark for what I was looking for. Not so. These lipsticks are super moisturizing and creamy and it didn’t go on heavy at all. Love these lipsticks! She then topped it with Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in #297 Sweet Beige. This added a little more shine and dimension with the shimmer. She also suggested that this is a great gloss used alone when wishing for something even more simple yet polished on the lips.
Here’s my end result. It’s been my go-to nude lip look for several weeks now and I’m hooked! What’s your favorite nude lip look? I’d love to hear what works for you.
