5 Ways To Get Nude Lips Like Kendall and Gigi

Nude lips have been around for a minute or two, but as Gigi and Kendall proved at the Balmain After Party, they are here to stay. Nude lips look so perfectly Audrey Hepburn, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, they can make you look like a colorless, washed out mess. All those nude lipsticks you purchased hopefully believing one of them would finally be THE ONE are left unused and collecting soap scum on the bathroom counter. No more. Use these tips, tricks, and products to get the Balmain nude lipped look like Kendall and Gigi!

1. Match your lipstick to your hair color. Dark horses should choose a lippy with a hint of pink, while blonde beauties can opt for peach undertones. galore_mag_float_butterfly

2. Exfoliate before application. This is by far the most important step. Get rid of all the chapped, peeling and crumbling skin that might have collected on your lips, or you’re better off skipping the lipstick all together. galore_mag_tarte

3. Add a swipe of gloss. If your lipstick is a tiny wisp too light, a slight coat of sheer pink gloss will remedy the sitch.

4. Full coverage is key. Choose products that are creamy and hyper pigmented, or else your lips will look toe-up as soon as you sip your Starbucks. 

5. Emphasize your eyes. Make like Gigi and Kendall and at the very least, wear mascara with your nude lips. Better yet, do a full on smokey eye! Otherwise, you’ll look like some kid’s forgotten coloring book page.
