The Perfect Nude Lip

Happy Cyber Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break with family and friends. Hopefully you shopped your heart out if that suits your fancy over the weekend!

I'm sharing with you today my new favorite lip color. I know I've gushed about it all over Instagram but I wanted to officially post for those that follow me and don't have a social media account. I'm officially hooked on Too Faced Melted Lip Colors. They go on like butter and last for hours! The first color I have from the Melted collection (but I promise there will be more) is Child Star! It's a fabulous color that is nude with a hint of brown. So fall, so fun! 

I know the constant struggle for many is with a matte lip color it needs to be smooth because matte shows a lot of imperfections in our lips. Dead skin has to be removed, our lips have to be lined and we need to have moisture otherwise our lips feel dead. I found the perfect combo and prep for the perfect nude lip with moisture! 

The first key is to use a lip scrub. I've linked up the one I use below! It's Laura Geller and takes all the dead skin off my lips before I apply any type of color! It's $16 but I've had it for like a year and a half and have hardly use any of it. A little goes a long way with this. 

Next I line my lips with a liner that matches the color I'm applying or slightly darker. I love MAC lip liners so I've linked up a MAC lip liner. These last forever as well. I have one that I use on a regular basis and have had it over a year. 

After lining them, I use a moisturizer. This preps the lips with a primer/moisturizer. It acts as a lipstick but has no color, helping the matte feel moisturized without being glossy. This product is the Clinique one linked below. 
Once all these quick steps are complete, apply your matte lip color. If you decide to get the Too Faced lip color, it makes the application process very easy. The brush allows you to get in the crevices of your lips without getting it on your skin. Your color should last 4-6 hours depending on what you're doing! I love the feeling of it being wet when it goes on and then eventually dries. 

Seriously, these make a perfect stocking stuffer! I've also linked up a cute "ornament" lip color from Too Faced and a duo with multiple options that you can break up and give to three different friends. Options, options, options! 

Hopefully this is helpful for you! This color is absolutely perfect for everyday. I can't quite decide what my next color will be but as soon as I decide, I'll be sure to let you know. 😉
