'When your asked for nudes...' ¦ Best Nude Lipsticks

Nude lipsticks and bronzed, flushed skin is always an aesthetic I love to create on oneself and others. It's my safe haven and oozes effortlessness. 

I have quite a few nude lipsticks in my stash but my favourite shade of a nude lippy is always that which tends to lean towards a much more pinkier hue. The reasoning behind this is a peachy/beige nude requires a lip liner to avoid it blending in with my skin tone and it always requires a brighter blush on the cheeks so as to not appear lifeless! 

Don't get me wrong, a colourful or a dark smokey eye is often best paired with a peachy nude and my two favourites are Rouge Dior Liquid-614 Jungle Matte and Tom Ford-Sable Smoke. The former is a liquid lipstick so does not move besides the corners of the mouth which attracts the most moisture and the latter is a creamy, shine formula which screams sophistication!

What's more, speaking of pinkier hued nude lipsticks, my most worn has to be Tom Ford- Pink Dusk, a shade I adorned during my Selfridges days. It's best worn by itself with just mascara, or even when paired with a pink/rose gold eye shadow. It is also a cream shine formula which is very comfortable on the lips and uber hydrating.

A shade I like to wear when I am rushed for time and doesn't require my religious routine of applying a lip liner first is the Tom Ford-Nubile lipstick. This lipstick belong to the 'Lip Colour Shine' category of Tom Ford lipsticks so carries a lot more moisture and has a silky finish. It also has a red/pink undertone.

Last but not least, a cult classic that belongs to all beauty mavens alike is Mac- Velvet Teddy, this is a lip shade that can be worn by itself and is a shade that suits so many complexions ranging from very pale to deep dark. It's a comfortable matte texture and is extremely long lasting, it is definitely one of my all time favourites!
