Why can’t I get it right?

I’m a bold red lip girl 90% of the time. I play around with pink and berry and sometimes, when I’m feeling extra wild, I’ll go for coral. I’ve always been a bit jealous of the girls who pull off the nude lip (when I say nude lip, I mean wearing a lipstick that is somewhere between the natural color of your lips and the color of your skin). My roommate is one of those girls. She looks really good wearing a nude lipstick. It’s fresh, it’s chic and it is pretty spot on with the natural beauty we saw on the spring runways.

Her trick? She often creates a base using her normal foundation on her lips or just wears the foundation as lipstick. Nude perfection.

I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s on my beauty to-do list.
