One thing I don’t actually find as universally appealing as we’re told is the “nude lip” look that’s so popular these days. I’ve noticed in my trawls around a lot of magazines, books and blogs that a lot of women appear to be scared of colour on their lips, and I’m wondering why that is? Get your lip colour right, I always think and you don’t actually need other makeup!
Don’t get me wrong, when the concealer-lip look is done well, as above, I think it’s superbly flattering, but get the colour slightly wrong and you can look like a zombie. Or worse:
It’s one of those looks that I, personally, think is easier to get wrong than it is to get right. What do you think?
