Nude lips have never been so easy!

I was just out shopping for a set bag the other day, when I almost bought the new MAC  Naturally lipstick, in the shade Pillow Talk, which is a nude lip color. While I have a wide range of lip colors in my professional makeup kit, most of the lipsticks I personally wear are plum shades, so I wanted to try something different. Unfortunately money doesn’t grow on trees, and it’s been a slow month so far,  so I figured it was best to wait and think about it.

Royal & Langnickel Nude Lip Painting Method with Kevin Bennett
Today I was perusing the Royal & Langnickel (R&L) website when I came across this video, where Emmy award-winning makeup artist, Kevin Bennett, is demonstrating how to get the nude lipstick look, sans the lipstick. Mr. Bennett’s method used the R&L BC210 Concealer brush, regular foundation and shiny clear lip gloss. So simple, so easy, so naturally beautiful and so saving me money!

In the end I saved my money and used foundation/gloss look. Well… almost, I ended up buying a plum colored lipstick, Vivid Violet,  from Smashbox (I couldn’t help it, it was my perfect shade!).
