The New and Exciting Way to Wear Nude Lipstick

Produced by Allure with Burt’s Bees

Nude lips are a perennial favorite because they evoke a woman’s natural beauty, they’re universally flattering, easy to apply (no mirror required), and look appropriate no matter what the occasion. To take your nude lipstick to the next level, first start with the right shade for the moment. That would be a creamy, moisturizing nude, like Burt’s Bees Natural Lipstick in Nile Nude. (For evening, layer over it a shimmery, honey-tinged nude gloss like Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Gloss in Autumn Haze.)

Give your skin an equally pretty glow with Burt’s Bees BB Cream with Noni Extract, which doesn’t just help you fake gorgeous skin—it helps give you gorgeous skin in the long-term. Burt’s Bees BB Cream protects your face from the sun with chemical-free SPF 15, deeply moisturizes, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, evens out your skin tone... we could go on (but just try it because it’s more fun to see the results than read a long list).

Then make your nude lips look like they’re flirtatiously nude—and not just naked—by picking the perfect eye makeup. For day, we love simple bronze-toned cream shadow on the lids, and for evening, subtly smoky eyes. Voila—done. —Emily Davis
