It is usually applied when you want to focus the attention on a dramatic smokey eye with long bold lashes. Whether you are a brunette or a blonde, nude is flattering on all!

Honestly, this color is great for any skin tone, giving you a sexy retro look! It should be applied with minimal makeup because it is such a bold color that can stand on its own!

1.  Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm “Grape Vine”, $2.69 , Target.com

There is really no rival for the classic red lip. It can elevate and sexify (is that a word? now it is!) your outfit or look in seconds! I usually use a red lip when I have minimal makeup on (aka too lazy), partnered with some eye liner and mascara.

My Recommendations:

1. Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick “Besos”, $22, Sephora.com

2. MAC Viva Glam Lipstick, $19, Mac.com
