Neverending Nudes!

I have always been obsessed with the 60's look of very dramatic dark smoky eyes and pale nude lips.  I used to put foundation or concealer on my lips and use clear or white lip gloss on top.  I have never liked colored lipstick on myself.  Very beautiful on others but not on me. 

My inspiration:



 


I am always searching for a very pigmented pale nude lipstick and even though I may have found the perfect one, I am always trying to find one to beat it.  Neverending!  I really like pink, beige and peach undertones.   

                                                                                 

My current favorites lippies in order:

Mac Pro- Fleshpot

Mac- Myth   

Mac- Creme D' Nude

Gosh- Darling

Mac- Hue

Mac- Equality

Mac- Shy Girl

Mac- Peachstock

Revlon- Soft Nude

Revlon- Nude Attitude


Nude lips are very high maintenance.  Number 1- Keep lips conditioned.  Number 2- Prime your lips with a lip eraser such as Mac Pro Lip Erase or Laura Geller Lip Spackle.  Number 3- Use a light colored lip pencil to line and fill in lips.  Number 4- Use a lip brush to apply lipstick or pat into your lips with your finger.    

 My Wishlist:

YSL Rouge Volupte- #2

Tom Ford- Blush Nude

Tom Ford- Vanilla Suede

OCC Lip Tar- Hush

OCC Lip Tar- Cha Cha

Barry M- Marshmallow

Do you like rocking  pale nude lips?  Are there any lipsticks I should try?

On The Hunt!

I'm on the hunt for Plain White Tees.  They are super soft and sexy.  I love them with or without pockets.  Must be over-sized and slouchy.  Either scoop-neck or v-neck or even deep v-neck.  These tees are a classic must have for every ladies wardrobe.  You can dress it up and pair it with cute jeans or dress it down with a pair of leggings or better yet jeggings!  What do you think of the slouchy tee?  Do you know of where I can find any more?
