Autumn Inspired: Nude Lips

6 September 2014

After another fast six weeks, summer seems to have flown past once again and autumn is here. I honestly love Autumn, 1 being it was my birthday two days ago and the other is the makeup. Berry lips, cranberry eyes and rosy cheeks; I can't wait to start wearing all my burgundy jumpers and wooly hats. 

This was quite a spontaneous little thought this morning, but I have decided to post two Autumn makeup looks this week, one for you today - the nude lips, and one for the coming week (you guessed it, bold lips). I have recently been loving, as has everyone else seems to be, the deep neutral, and rather glamorous nude, worn on the lips. This look is surely going to be a 'go-to' this Autumn, as I have just found the perfect lipstick for this job...

Generally, I believe nudes are a really glamorous, stunning colour to wear on the lips, especially deeper nudes on a night out. I can't wait to be wearing this lipstick more often as it was a gift from my fabulous best friend for my birthday (love you meg!). If you would like to know more about this lipstick or any other products mentioned then feel free to ask for a review in the comments below. 

Do any of you love the latest nude hype? What is your favourite nude lipstick? Would you like to see a birthday haul of all the gifts I received?

  1. Such a lovely post idea! I really wanted to buy velvet teddy when I saw it in mac as it was gorgeous! However it was sold out!! :( this lipstick looks stunning on you as well! Xx

    1. aw this is so lovely of you. It is such a beautiful colour and you should definitely try and get it again next time you visit a mac store. Also it is matte, it isn't dry on the lips in the slightest:-) In loveeee xx

  2. I've been on the fence as to whether or not to try this lipstick but it looks so pretty and perfect for autumn, I love the matte finish!
