OK so I’m about to dive into one of my FAAAAVE topics ever – nudes! Not the kind you accidentally send to your boo out of pressure (no, I’m not speaking from experience), but rather the kind you whip out when you’re feeling sexy. To me, nudes come in all different tones. When I refer to nudes, I mean brown based nudes, orange-peachy nudes, pink-fleshy blush tones, I include them all. Because in reality, nudes come in all different shades and sciences - depending on your skin tone. All nudes are not created equally! But have no fear ya’ll, I am here to save the day! Over the years I have experimented time and time again with varying nudes and I think I’m on to something. I’ve compiled a list of my fave nudey-blush items and how they made it to the list. So keep reading if you’d like to master the art of sending nudes ;) Enjoy!

So these are my top 5 lip combos for the ULTIMATE nude lip. And honey, I am serving you glossy, matte and satin, okaaaaaaaaay? I tried my best to touch on all the color bases so no undertone would be left out. When I go for a nude lip, my foundation is always a rich brown lip liner paired with a soft and airy fleshy tone. Sometimes I lean more towards pink, other times I go more brown. Sometimes I go glossy and transparent, other times I like more color. It really depends on my mood and my hair color. But pick a few and experiment. Tell me what your fave is!

Undergarments and Shapewear
Ever wondered how people create the illusion of having nothing under a see-through dress without actually being naked? Well. I’m releasing the secret. I absolutely love flesh-colored undergarments for E V E R Y T H I N G. I use them under mesh/netted clothing to create the illusion of bare skin while adding a nice slimming effect. Now of course the colors pictures below are my perfect nude so be sure when shopping, you choose based on your skin tone.
