I love a good dramatic smokey eye look.
In order to pull off a great smokey eye, one should have a GREAT nude lippie.
I happen to have 5 that I LOVE.
Finding the right shade of nude lipstick can be difficult for some.
I know personally it took me a few trail and errors to actually find my favorites.
I will be the first to admit that I had some epic fails and looked like the corpse bride.
From experience, I avoid ALL Frosty shades of Nude.
You know the ones with sparkle...NO GO!
They just seem to go ALL WRONG for me.
I always exfoliate my lips with a clean mascara wand.
Wearing a matte nude color can show every crack and cold sore. (if you have them)
You want a smooth clean surface.
I also add a little gloss if my color makes my lips look to dull.
Here are my 5 go-to nude lipsticks.
