The Everyday Lipsticks

For a day to day look, I always reach for a nude lipstick. I like to keep my make up simple and I find that these lipsticks always work with my everyday look. I think it can be quite hard to find the perfect shade for your skin type - some lipsticks can be too pink, some too nude and some too pale. I have olive undertones in my skin (Mac NC37-40 for reference) and I find that these lipsticks work perfectly. I also know a couple of my friends who have paler skin than me and these match perfectly on them too. It's all about what shade you're looking for and what works well with you.

I think nude lipsticks can get neglected around this time of year. Everybody's reaching for reds or a deep colour as it's Winter, which I do sometimes too, but I find that when I switch back to these for a daily look I never know why I changed in the first place! I carry quite a few make up products in my handbag daily as it's good to have products to touch up and these 3 will always be with me no matter what.. (excessive? maybe.)

Mac Velvet Teddy (available here)

I (and everyone else) like to call this the 'Kylie Jenner lipstick'. It's the perfect everyday nude with a hint of warmness in the undertone to make it incredibly flattering on the lips. Suitable for all skin types, this is the perfect everyday lipstick. It makes lips appear fuller and it's matte formula ensures that it stays put all day - so it's perfect for long days at the office or long evenings out where you want your lipstick to last. This lipstick has been in and out of stock for almost a year now so I would grab it before it goes again! 

L'oreal Colour Riche Moisture Matte Lipstick 640 (available here)

This L'oreal lipstick is a steal from the drugstore. At only £6.99, you can't go wrong with a matte lipstick. I always have this lipstick in my handbag and like using it on it's own or mixed with other lipsticks. The shade 640 is a deep nude / almost berry colour that is extremely flattering on the lips. It applies smooth and stays put all day. It also has an effect of making your lips look bigger than they are so I never need to pair this with a lip liner. I would highly recommend this formula as it's not drying and doesn't make lips go flakey like some matte lipsticks would do. They have a stunning red shade (here) in this lipstick which is also perfect for the festive season!

When these lipsticks came out about a year ago, I immediately knew I had to try them. When I saw them displayed on the Nars counter I gravitated towards the shade Barbara as it looked right up my street. This is a more cool toned nude with a little hint of brown, but again not too heavy or overbearing, which makes it perfect for everyday use. The packaging is the best part about this product as the black slick packaging is magnetic which means you're lipstick lid will not fall off in your handbag (girls - you know what I'm talking about!) I would highly recommend checking out these Nars Lipsticks as they come in a variation of shades and are super long lasting.
