With the Happy return of the Nineties, comes the happy return of the Brown Lip, so from Coffee To Nude. If you feel a light shade is too pale, but still want a nude lip, opt for a shade 1 step darker than your skintone and with a bit of pink or peach to it to liven things up. For a really modern look, go for Matte Neutrals with a grey undertone.
Here are my Top Three ways to Rock the Brown Lip Trend:
1. Gloss: I love a Glossy nude lip in the daytime, takes me back! Ilia’s The Butterfly & I is a rich Neutral Apricot tone, Cosmetics a la Carte City Lips is a perfect Nude Pink and Neals Yard Nude Lip Gloss is actually a deep Tan colour.
2. Bullet Lipstick: If you prefer a Proper Lipstick, I LOVE Dr Hauschka Novum 04 IT is a gentle neutral shimmer that looks good on EVERYONE. For a creamier texture, try Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo Which offers a range of Neutral Nudes for all complexions , and NYX Full Throttle Lipstick in Kiss the Dust is a richer Coffee Tone.
3. Liquid Lipstick: I Personally love a liquid lipstick, it goes on like a gloss ( so you can use the wand for precise application) but dries to a lasting Matte Finish. I like Sleek Matte Me in Birthday Suit (good Name), and am a big fan of Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lips in Canvas, and Liquid Lip Originators OCC’s Nude Interlace is a lovely Peachy nude.
