The first step in approaching a nearly naked lip is choosing which color you’d like to use. Pink-ish nudes tend to be brighter and harder to pull off, on the other hand brown-ish nude shades are subtle and more natural looking. If you’re undecided, grab a shade in between the two in a mid-tone pink brown like MAC Créme in Your Coffee.
Next, choose your desired finish. If you want an opaque lip, choose a creamier formula like a cremesheen. For a lighter wash of color, choose a gloss or dab on a satin finish formula.
