The Best Nude Lipstick Combo | Redhead + Fair Skin Friendly

 

A great nude lipstick can tie together a whole look.  I love wearing one with a smokey eye or a softer, natural glow look.

As a redhead with fair skin however, I’ve made my way through plenty of nude lips that were slightly too pink or too pale.

I posted this photo on IG the other day and got a ton of questions on the lip combo.  It’s become my go-to lip pairing lately, so I wanted to share it.  I like how it’s nude, but wakes my skin up, instead of washing my complexion out.

The lip liner is from Essence and is shade “In The Nude.”  It retails for $1.99.  Yeaaah, buddy.  It lasts hours and is a great nude color.

The lipsticks are a combinations of two shades from Too Faced.  They are the La Creme Color Drenched Lipsticks.  I apply shade “Naughty Nude” first over my whole lip, then shade “Naked Dolly” over the center of my lips.  This gives your lips a bit of dimension and makes them look plumper.  The shades melt together and make such a beautiful nude lip.  They retail for $22 each.

The pigment on this lipstick is amazing, one swipe and your lips are truly “drenched” in color.  They are also hydrating, which I love.  I tend to throw nude lipsticks on when I’m going to be wearing makeup all day and don’t want to have to check in on my lips frequently like I would with a darker lip.

The formula lasts about five hours on me before requiring a touch up.  I think it’s probably the most truly hydrating formula out of all my lipsticks.

The formula has a bit of a shine or satin finish, so I skip gloss with this combo.

Overall, I love both the lip liner and the lipsticks.  Really great formulas and a perfect nude lip combo!

You can shop the lip liner at Target and Ulta and the lipsticks at Ulta and Sephora.
