    You know... NUDE.

    I always end up with the wrong nudes.

    They're either too pink or too bright or too brown/dark.

    All I want is a ROSE WOOD tone. Something that's one shade above your

    natural tone of the lips, subtle, but still noticeably lipstick. And warm.

    My skin is olive and rather tanned.


    Please recommend stuff. :love:

    Crystal Pink Pure Colour lipstick by Estee Lauder is dreamy.

    i'm in love with their Vanilla Truffle lippy too, but it's very pale.

    the rule for nude is 3 shades lighter than your skintone or 3 shades darker.

    if you put it on with no makeup on and it makes you look more dead, you have to wear it with a smokey eye.

    if you put it on and it makes you like you're more fleshy, then you can wear it however the fuck you want too.

    wearing a colour lighter than your skintone seems so wrong to me. when i was little i threw away all my mums pink lipstick & left her with only red because pink was a waste of time in my mind

    really? i personally think a nude 3 shades darker sounds weirder. but its been proven to me that it can look ok.
