In The Nude!

Neutral shades are my most worn items of makeup. I guess because they're easy to wear, everyday shades that you cant go wrong with. The Benefit world famous neutrals set* is perfect for any nude lovers. The set includes four long wear shadows and two creaseless creams in birthday suit and my two cents. These make perfect bases for any powder shadow or if you just want a little wash of colour on your lids.
My all time favourite nude nail polishes are Deborah Lippmanns fashion and Models own utopia (both swatched here). Fashion is taupe with creme finish whilst utopia is a very pale beige with grey undertones. Both are perfect for any skin tone and are beautiful shades for autumn.

For lips, my new nude love is urban decay revolution lipstick in naked (reviewed/swatched here). I also really like Rimmel moisture renew lipstick in notting hill nude which is a gorgeous, moisturising nude and really affordable too.

A blusher I adore is Bobbi Browns nude peach blush, a very light peachy pink with nude undertones. It has very subtle shimmer, leaving a subtle glow. NYX blush in taupe is great for contouring on pale skins but also a lovely nude blusher for darker skin tones.
A few other notable mentions are Urban decay naked basics palette and MAC eyeshadows in satin taupe and era.

What are your favourite nude shades?

  11. I love nudes too, mainly in the form of eyeshadows and cheek products. Nyx's taupe blush has been on my wishlist forever, so many people recommend it. I like the sound of the lipsticks you included but I too struggle to find my perfect 'nude' lipstick. Anything too pale washes me out but I don't like when they lean too pink, picking a nude lip colour is almost a scientific process haha xx
