2 Ways to Rock Nude This Summer.

Hello Colour fans,

This blog post is all about how we can work nude. It’s sometimes a very difficult colour to work with i.e.. correct underwear and finding a shade for your lips that will not make you look like you have none, but where there is a will there’s a way.

My first purchase in this shade came from this pair of shoes that I found. Inspiration for this kind of thing came from the public desire instagram feed – I needed some of that in my life.

They looked so shiny in the box and I couldn’t wait to get them on! I found that the nude colour worked really well against the white sole and gold buckle.

I am a bit unsure of the plastic texture, kind of cheap-looking, but you have to give these trends a go right? (let me know what you think). The next step was to find something to pair them with! I suggest a pair of blue skinny jeans with a cream floaty chiffon top+ nice shiny necklace… If you have any ideas of what else I could pair these shoes with. Please comment below!

Now, let’s talk nude makeup. I picked this little beauty up at topshop! It’s called ‘Lips in Saint’ and appears a lot more pinky on the website then it is in real life. Unbelievably, this is my first piece of topshop makeup… ever. I normally buy a mix of drug store and the odd high end beauty product so I thought, let’s have a try. I’m not keen on the packaging because I prefer a minimalistic design however, the product goes on like a dream. Take a look.

Do let me know your experiences if you go on to purchase either of these products and also let me know if you are liking nude as a colour. Is it a colour you have a lot of in your wardrobe/makeup?

  1. I started trying nude colors late last year by purchasing two lovely matte lipsticks and a pair of pumps (they make my legs look longer!). So far, I’m loving it because nude seems to go with everything.

    • Yeah, absolutley great at making the legs look longer- always a good thing. I’m not too sure on the lipstick colour myself as it’s a little bit too close to my skin colour but heading in the right direction.. Thanks for commenting x
