Top Five: 60's Inspired Nude Lip


Many of the big Autum/Winter 2014 shows looked to the 1960's for inspiration. The catwalks of Oscar de la Renta, Mochino and Yves Saint Laurent were all rocking a retro vibe reminiscent of Marianne Faithfull or Britt Eckland.

Stepping back in time, here are my Top five suggestions for a sixties inspired nude lip...



Madeira High Pigment Pencil by Bite Beauty

I fell in love with Madeira earlier this year after it was brought over to the UK from the USA by a very helpful relative. A truly fabulous pink nude with a long lasting matte finish, Maderia is richly pigmented and comes in a retractable pencil form.


US $24.00 from Sephora     -     www.bitebeauty.com


New York by Red Apple Lipstick


A brown toned nude with orange undertones, New York has a slight glossy finish and looks great on darker skin tones. In case you haven't come across them before Red Apple Lipstick lipsticks (they don't just do lipstick) are gluten, paraben, soy and casein (dairy) free.


US $23.50 from Red Apple Lipstick     -     www.redapplelipstick.com



Humble Me by Ilia Beauty


I don't seem to be able to escape Ilia lipstick in my top fives... They have it just right. Humble Me is the ultimate nude; a honey-brown tone with a semi-matte finish; Subtle and understated but packs a bit of a punch!


£22.00 from Content     -     www.iliabeauty.com



Naturale Romantique by Couleur Caramel


A new discovery for me, Naturel Romantique is from Couleur Carmel's Autumn/Winter 2014 collection and I love it! A soft brown toned nude (it looks very pink in the online image - it's not!) with a satin finish. A delicate, flattering take on the sixties lip.


£15.00 from Couleur Caramel     -     www.couleur-caramel.co.uk



Dream State Lip Tint by Kjaer Weis

If you don't feel you can go totally matte then go into a Dream State with this nude-beige. The sheer lip tint has a slight sheen and is perfect for creating a neutral, barely there lip - plus its the go-to favourite of Kirsten Kjaer Weis herself!

£32.00 (with compact) or £18.00 (refill) from Content     -     www.kjaerweis.com
