What is Your Best Nude/Bare Lip?

Many women ask which is the best nude lip for their skin, hair and eye tones. Nude can be tricky on so many levels. For the last few years it has become the fashion colour with a smokey eye, and has become established as a classic by Charlotte Tilbury and her fantastic take on the flick eye and nude lip.
But let’s first talk about the description NUDE, what does that say to you?

To me this is often associated with white people’s natural colour, and not everyone like that but it has become a default description. Well I suggest we might rename nude BareI think this lip look is about choosing your most flattering shade closest, or a maximum of one shade lighter, to what nature best owed on your lips.
When I go for a nude lip I have to be wearing make-up or I feel it can wash me out. My blush colour must not clash with the tone, so nothing mad, and I need to be wearing flattering clothes – i.e no white, as by itself it’s too washing out. For skin tones caramel and above, I think a bare lip can be worn with less make up, as your natural skin shade is not washing you out. And I can wear a bare lip shade without any other make up if I have some bronzer, or a slight tan…
I’m sorry we didn’t get to include a redhead, or a grey haired, we will get there I promise.

    Hi Trinny,
    I would love to come and be a part of what you are doing. My passion and enthusiasm needs nothing more than to take part! I have been a huge fan for so long. I am 45 and 5’3″, size 6/8 with Auburn hair ( obviously coloured roots), with some caramel highlights through the ends. I am generally shy but would love to meet you so willing to overcome my shyness!

    Hi Trinny great choices for all the girls! Something a bit personal I’m afraid, I know how honest you are . I love following your beauty journey and was wondering if you have filler? Under eyes? I had some last year and it made me look like someone entirely different. I looked like Amanda Holden .

      I had something years ago that was all removed. Generally I do Botox, Dracula facial, and my intense daily routine and lots of lifting massage.

        Thank you I will follow your lead , before I found you on YouTube I was lucky if I took my makeup off with a baby wipe. Now I exfoliate every day and am religious with skin care. You are fabulous xx
