They keep you looking fresh, they look fantastic with whatever you're wearing, and they're super easy to use—these are a few things that make us obsessed with nude lipsticks. Here, three other uses for this beauty staple that'll make you want to hoard them:
Pair your pink-nude lippie with a brighter hue to pull off this beauty trend, which is Korea's subtler and sweeter version of ombré lips. First, line the outside of your lips with the lighter lipstick. Then, lightly apply a few swipes of fuschia lipstick on the inner part of your upper and lower lips. Again, don't forget to blend!
So you have a couple of lipsticks that are too bold for your taste? Your nude lipstick can fix that! After swiping on the bold lipstick, take a lip brush and layer on your nude lipstick to neutralize it. You just made your bright or dark lippies super wearable.
Aside from your lip liner, you can use nude lipstick to make your lips look plumper. You will need two shades—one should be about two to three shades lighter than the other. Swipe on the darker shade all over your lips, and blend the lighter shade just in the center of your puckers. This will give your lips dimension, making them appear larger.
Of course, you need to make sure you get the perfect shade and formulation to make sure you can pull of these beauty moves without your lippie giving you a headache. We recommend Revlon Matte Balm in Enchanting, our Cosmo Beauty Awards pick for best nude lip.
It's your moisturizing balm and longwearing matte lip tint in one handy crayon. Really, who could resist this pretty MLBB lipstick?
