THE PERFECT NUDE LIPS As I was saying in one of my previous articles, I've planned on bringing the beauty topic more and more into the Trendique as I am also an make-up artist. If you're following me on Instagram (@thetrendique) you might have noticed that I've posted a lot of beauty related photos on there lately to start this little new beauty adventure. Today I'm finally kicking it off on here as well with a super easy and classy nude lip. And just as a little warning: Get ready for MUCH more lip tutorials to come!!! I love creating new lip make-up looks just because for me, the lips are really the last touch that makes your whole make-up pop.
1. Moisturizing It's SO important to always, always moisturize your lips. Especially when you applying lipstick or other drying lip products on a daily bases. On the first picture you can see my natural lips with nothing on but my favorite lip balm from Chanel.
2. Lipliner If you really want to create the illusion of bigger and fuller lips or just want to apply a bold color, then do not skip the lipliner step! I have to admit, a few years ago... when it all started with make-up for me... I never really got the point why I should use lipliner. But once I tried it, I fell in love.
3. Lipstick When you're finished with lining your lips fill them out with a lipstick. You can even fill them out with the lipliner before which will make the color last much longer. When it comes to lipstick it doesn't really matter if it's a matte or shiny one, but I personally wouldn't recommend one of those ''sparkly ones'' (if you're going for a nude lip).
4. Lipgloss Time to shine!!! For those of you who want to really create the illusion of fuller lips, I'll definitely recommend using a gloss on top of all that. I'm lucky to have quite full lips naturally but I also like to use some gloss to give it all an extra shine. Little site note: For fuller looking lips, avoid putting lipgloss all over the lips, just in the middle.
