How to glam up your nude lipstick

Hi there my Lovelies!

It’s been awhile since I made a lipstick related post and I missed it very much. As I rummage to my make up kit, two nude lipstick has been ignored much. I love nudes, but the problem is Nudes doesn’t seem to like me. As much as I want to make it a staple like of the others, I alwyas end looking so washed out. It could also be a matter of pairing though, I know. Should I wear a Nude lipstick, my eyes should hold attention. But could I think of anything that would make these lipstick more of use rather than on an ocassional basis? I thought of two:Β Coral and Gradient.


Making your nude on a coral hue concept was ofΒ Joy from Style with Joy. If my memory serves me right, I was hooked with her idea of making coral hues from layering orange with nude. On that point, my mindset was to make my orange lipstick be of action again since it’s been long sitting in my drawer. Now, I could make use of the two. I use my Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mauvey and CMX Lipstick in Mandarin Maiden also a matte finish. I put a lip balm first before applying the two for it’ll tend to dehydrate my lips.
Next is the Gradient Lips or just-bitten lips which has been a trend in Korea since last year. The natural look it gives has made a huge following though some might find this a litte “lacking” to the feel because you don’t totally cover your lips with lipstick. There are at least three that I know to achieve the Gradient Lip or ombre/bitten lips. Again, my orange lipstick could be of work to this and a lip tint. Apply the lipstick first then apply the lip tint at the inner part of your lips. Carefully open and close your lips for the color to blend.

Korean Make up has this Lip product that has a smudger on the other end to smudge the outer part of your lips leaving the inner part more intensified for that gradient effect. Or you could simply use a lip tint and apply in the inner part of your lips.

For my Gradient lips what I used is the third kind wherein you got to apply your nude lipstick first then carefully dab the inner part with a bright or bold lipstick and again carefully open, close lips for blending. For my nude listick, I used my M&Co. Eur Color in Biscuitand Loreal Color Intense in Intense Fuschia

  1. I haven’t tried gradient lips but I feel like the look would only last for a few minutes before it gets ruined by talking or me rubbing my lips together (which is a bad habit of mine).
    I have layered lipsticks before because sometimes I buy lipsticks that are pretty to look at in the tube but way too bright for my personal liking. So I normally tone it down with something more nude or dull.
    So nice to see your face on your blog! πŸ˜€ ❀

    1. Thank you! I hope I’ll get use to seeing my face here. It’s a lot different to see it full. πŸ˜€ I feel weird We thought so too. So I opted for a matte base instead . But I find it cute though it accentuates my full lips. This lips is just all for the show.
      I’ve been doing layering since then but haven’t took it seriously to jot down. Sometimes the usuals gets pretty boring that you want to add dimension. πŸ™‚


    1. *shy face* thank you Lainey. A bit hesitant but all for the love of blogging.
      I find gradient lips so cute. πŸ™‚ I also have the same issue maybe it’s common in us. Consider it as a gift instead. πŸ™‚

  2. How nice to see your face! You’re looking lovely! I usually just top my lipstick with a lipgloss for an amp-up. If I need to tone a lipstick down, I either layer it over a nude lipliner or top it with a more muted lipstick. I haven’t tried an ombre effect, but I don’t have very full lips (small mouth and average lip fullness), so it might look weird πŸ™‚

    1. A first time at gradient lips. I usually don’t use the nudes, just a plain lip tint at the center. My lips are horrible if I would wear a matte the whole day. Well, no pain no gain. πŸ˜€
      I was also like you before, just to tone down a bit. But some lipsticks are sitting down for the rest of their lives in my vanity so I have to do them a favor. πŸ˜€


    2. Ooops! Hit replied button too fast!
      Thank you, I was laughing the whole time while taking the pictures you see I’m really not good at taking selfies to start off. I have to take a crash course. I’m glad you like it, I appreciate it much. πŸ™‚
