We’re in the mood for some nude lip looks!
Aug. 21, 2020
Nude lipstick – a look you can rock all day and every day no matter the occasion! With little effort your face will look fresh and youthful. Nude lips have become everybody’s new favourite lippie because they are so adaptable. As soon as you’ve found your nude shade, there is literally nothing that can go wrong!
Rather than scrolling through beauty catalogue after beauty catalogue choosing between balmy beiges, satin tans and natural pinks we’ve done the hard work for you! So, read on to discover your perfect nude shade and style!
Peaches aren’t just a delicious fruit; they also make for a fantastic nude shade.
You never have to fear about your nude shade washing out your lips as the sheer pink hue will give your lips a gorgeous glow and add warmth to your complexion. Regardless of whether you have a cool or a warm undertone, peach nudes work on every skin complexion.
We would recommend pairing that peach nude with some black liner and mascara to give you the perfect old school glamour look. Or go the extra mile like Instagrammer @mariadambro and add a gold shimmer on top!
Sometimes a pink nude is all you need to truly bring out the natural pink of your lips. Again, this nude look works for a variety of skin tones – from warm to neutral to cool skin tones. The pink nude was most famously worn by the ultra-glamorous Audrey Hepburn in her role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s – and ever since it’s been a hit! Look at Instagrammer @lauraaayache rocking the look!
The beauty of the pink nude is that most people won’t even realise you are wearing a lipstick at all – they’ll just be envious of your genetic make-up!
If you want to take down the natural pink in your lips a notch then a beige nude is the solution you’ve been searching for. Beige shades tend to be full of warmth and richness that will make your lips glow! Don’t believe us? Just check out Instagrammer @bviktorija’s pic for proof!
Beige nudes work particularly well on deeper skin tones – just look at Jennifer Lopez in the early 2000s to see the beige nude at its best!
Want your nude shades to look soft and bright throughout the day? Then opt for a matte nude. The matte will give you a bold nude colour while also allowing for your lip’s natural texture to shine through.
Matte nude lipsticks will also help warm up your complexion, so those with cooler and more neutral complexions take note! Here’s Instagrammer @thebrenmarie looking absolutely meticulous with her matte!
Pair your nude with some bronzer
A nude lip works pretty well all by itself – but if you want to give your nude lipstick a helping hand why not add some bronzer into the mix? Bronzer on your cheeks will add some warmth to your skin and offset the coolness of the nude shade. We can practically feel the heat coming from Instagrammer @mitchsstyle’s look!
Pair your nude with a lip gloss or lipstick
Lip gloss works particularly well when its applied over matte nude colours. If you’re worried about your nude shade washing out your face, then the gloss will provide some extra shine and liveliness to your complexion! Instagrammer @courtneyoliviamakeup’s lips are so lively they could practically resuscitate someone!
Or, how about pairing your nude shade with your favourite red or pink lipstick? Once you’ve applied your nude lipstick, simply touching the top of your red or pink lipstick and then dabbing your lips will create the perfect amalgamation of nude and colour! We love the pink hue Instagrammer @makeup_byamberlb is sporting in this pic!
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?

Black Owned Intimate Care ✨🌹
I did a review on this brand before but in honor of BHM I def had to bring it up again ! #Saltxo - Yoni Shower Gel[products]#[FiveStars] #Saltxo - Femme Rejuv Oil[products]#[FiveStars] I use this gel everyday! It leaves my Yoni energized and clean. I’ve never experienced any irritation and I’m extremely sensitive in that area. It smells very herbal like and a little goes a long way! ($17.99) The Femme Rejuv Oil is a great staple for irritation. I use this baby after my waxes, Emergency shaves, and after getting busy. I find this to be the best oil I’ve ever used down there. A little goes a long way. ($30) This brand is usually always out of stock! She sells out so fast but I always manage to get one thing. I definitely recommend if you love intimate soaps . Do you have a favorite intimate soap ?
HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.4 DAYS AGO
