With Spring here, I'm holding off bold lips and settling for more nude hues. I've picked up some of my go-to's so keep reading to see what made the list!. With my current Monday - Friday schedule, I rarely wear makeup because I gym 4-5 days a week. Sounds intense right?! but I focus mainly on HITT workouts which are a mere 25-30 mins of high Intensity training! plus shunning such a perk ' free access to a platinum gym just under our office building' would be silly!. Days I have meetings, and don't want to look so fresh faced, I ensure my lips make up for it.

So be it in the week or during my weekend 'doll up' sessions, nude lips cut it!

I am currently using my 'white rabbit vegan lip balmfor my base with my choice of lip pencil on top for a slightly creamy feel. I find lip pencils last that much longer!. However, I do love my 'gosh matte antique lippy' over my lip pencils for a long wearing matte look. At times, I opt for a creamy matte gloss but hands down my neutraliser is the ' Mac strip down pencil' no matter what nude I opt for, if I want to tone it down a wee bit, this lip pencil does just that! giving me ease when it comes to playing around with my hues, so this hands down is my fave lip pencil.

NUDE OPTS!

1. Mac 'Strip down' lip pencil. 

2. Mac 'Whirl' lip pencil.

3. NYX Soft matte lip cream 'Abu Dhabi'.

4. Gosh velvet touch matte lipstick 'Antique'.

5. Maybelline Vivid matte liquid lipstick' Nude Thrill'. 

Tip : Achieving a gorgeous pout starts with the base so daily light lip exfoliation and moisturization goes a long way :)! 

Till next time have a blessed weekend! 

Lots Of Love
