If there's one celebrity who's makeup style I'm channelling the most at the moment, it's miss Kylie Jenner, and in particular her take on the 90's nude lip. I'd always had this anxious thought in the back of my mind that any lipstick lighter than a peach-esque coral would completely wash out my pale skin and blonde hair, but oh how I was wrong. So wrong in fact, that I've been reaching for a colour a la Kylie ever since my sweeping revelation, and I think it suits me more than pinks, plums and everything in-between (except perhaps red, red can never truly be replaced) there are a few combinations I use so here's the lowdown.
For an everyday nude with minimal undertones I opt for Pillow Talk to line the lips with emphasis on the outer corners and the cupids bow, and then a generous dose of Velvet Teddy to fill, alternatively if my lips are feeling a tad on the dry side I'll opt for Nude Perfection because it's practically identical with the only difference being a light hue of pink added to the mix and a slightly less matte finish. For a pinch more purple/brown, and great for wearing on an evening or with a particularly grungy outfit, I tend to lean towards Whirl to line the lips with Motel all over. However, by far the easiest way to work this look is with the actual colour Miss Jenner wears, and that's the creamy pink toned goodness that is Soar used simply to both line and fill the lips. It's a multi-tasker if ever I saw one, and the most perfect product of the bunch for spring.
Will you be attempting or avoiding the Kylie Jenner lip look this season?
