How to Wear Nude Lipstick

Let professional makeup artist Patricia Longo teach you how to wear nude lipstick in this makeup tutorial from Howcast.


Hi, I'm Patricia Longo, and I'm a celebrity makeup artist. I've worked with models from Sports Illustrated, like Brooklyn Decker and Julie Henderson, to Alec Baldwin at 30 Rock. All those things that experts do that the average person doesn't know how to do, we'll learn how to do it on these videos. I love nude lips. I think nude lips have been really popular the last decade. I always wear a nude lip with smokey eyes. I love playing up the eyes, so if I do a lot of bronze and gold and blacks and...all smokey eyes should always have a nice soft, nude lip. And when I do the nude lip, I would make the lips a little fuller and put a lot of gloss on, and that usually gives the lips a fullness, so it's not completely washed out. If you put a nice gloss on top with a nice soft liner, it'll show the lips, but you have a natural lip. And that's how I would wear a nude lip. During the day, if you want a very natural look, you can do very soft eyes with peach tones and taupes and beiges on the eyelids, but you can also continue using the nude on your lip. So you don't necessarily have to have smokey eyes for the nude lips. It's just one of my preferences. But I definitely like a natural lip with all types of eyes.
