A great look this season is a pair of pale lips.  They are nice with dramatic eyes and can provide quite a sultry look.  Here are some really easy steps to get this look from pages of a magazine to your own reflection:

Step 1: Protect your lips

The first thing you want to do is to moisturize your lips.  Any lip balm or Vaseline will do.  Here I am using Elizabeth Arden's 8 Hour Cream.

Step 2: Brush on the foundation

After putting foundation on your face, put on your lips whatever there is left on the foundation sponge or brush.  With the natural pink color of your lips, adding the foundation that you already use will create a nice color.


Step 3: Add some gloss

Use either a clear or a light-colored, sheen lip gloss onto your lips.  This will provide shine.  
If you want to stay matte, then skip this part.
Here I am using Rimmel Lip Gloss in "Mocha".

All Done!  
See?  Not difficult at all!  A great look for day or night, as easy as 1 2 3.




  1. amazing post! such great tips. i've been trying to master this look for a while so now i might actually have it down :)

    thanks for your sweet comments - your beautiful x

    For all things fashion:

  2. Aww yeah I used to just use foundation as well but I found that it's hard if you need to touch up--which you inevitably do when you're throwing back drinks all night lol
    I think you're lips look lovely since theres a touch of pink in your nude. Mine usually turns out a little bit deathly LOL Super gorgeous and thanks for posting :}

  3. Aww you're so lucky to have such nice, pouffy lips! Thanks for the tutorial, I'll have to try this one out.

  4. Re your comment on my blog -- that's the real Zang! I know him well and actually I was at that Real Housewives lunch! Thank God I didn't end up on TV. Zang did great though.

  5. I love the pale lips smokey eyes thing too...i do it all the time....the easiest way to look smexi!

  6. Yes you should! Life is too short to be wearing bad mascara! ^^

  7. Nude lips look great on you! My lips have a dark rose hue to them (people tell me I look like I have lipstick on when I'm not wearing any) so I always think I look a bit strange when I dabble with this look. :-/
