Nude. Nekked. Au Naturale . . .


Spring is here and now is the time for makeup to be all about the light, the fresh, the airy. . . .and of course the fabulous. So with this all in mind I’m once again obsessed with naked (yet chic!) looking lips. Nude lipstick and glosses give a plump, polished luciousness to your kisser, and while texture is up to you, I would like to strongly suggest you choose glossy/creamy formulas to avoid a corpse like appearance. It’s about looking fresh . . .not like the un-dead. (You’re welcome.)

Here are a few winners in the nude lip department

Topshop Lipstick in Nevada ($16;

MAC Lipstick in Creme d’Nude ($21;

MAC’s Lipglass in Naked Space ($15;

Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips Gloss in Samantha ($18;


I love pairing a nude lip with an uber mascara-ed eyes complete with inner rim eyeliner. Also, play with bright nail polish to balance out the “nekked-ness” of that gorgeous nude smacker.

You’ll recognize these celeb faces below, and while I typically refrain from using movie stars on my blog there is no getting around the fact that both of these girl’s makeup artists know how to rock a perfect nude mouth with eyes that balance the trend. Both of these looks are nude perfection:



So for today it’s go nude or go home.


Have a Beautiful Day!
