We all have them nude lipsticks that are way too light for us but many lip liners out there either make the colour completely different or leave us with a contrasted lipline. So we need to turn to our brow pencils.. Yep you heard me right.
For the example here I am using LA Girl lipstick in Ooh La La (£4.08, Amazon) which is a gorgeous pink white based lipstick. It’s fab over many liners but if you want the true colour of the lipstick as it’s very milky it can make you look a bit washed out and concealer-esque.
Now the usual way to create dimension and stop the lips looking thus way is by applying a gloss. But why would you buy a matte nude lipstick to simply then add gloss to it. No no no.
By taking your brow pencil, preferable one like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (£15.50, Beauty Bay) which is very thin and a hard texture meaning it can be used very faintly. Now the colour I have is Medium Brown and I simply use it around the Cupid’s bow and underneath the bottom lip to create a shadow effect to define the lips without distracting from the nude colour of the lipstick.
Try it I promise you won’t have to keep your nudes glossy ever again!
