The Bold and the Beautifully Nude.

I want to start a little series of posts called "The Bold and the Beautifully Nude" because since the spring, I have been wearing bright, bold lips and creamy, glossy nude lipsticks equally as much. I will be doing a post like this, showing two opposite lip colors, once a week. I love all of these lip colors, from both ends of the spectrum! Whether it's a true orange...fiery pink... or somewhere in between, I LOVE bright colored lips! I'd have to say they are my favorite! For the times when I do a smokey/dramatic eye though, you can't beat a beautiful nude shade of lipstick.  Because of that, I want to share them all with you -  in hopes it will inspire you to go bold....or go nude ;)

Just a disclaimer... most of these pictures are taken with my iPhone, in the car. I want to be sure I remember to take them, so it's usually after I've gotten in the car and am running (late) somewhere. Also, I am a smiler. Always. However, when you are trying to show off a lipstick color, smiling just isn't the best way to do that. Unless you have Angelina Jolie lips, and alas - I do not. Enjoy! xx

BOLD: One of my all-time faves: "Orange Flip" by Revlon. 
I wear MAC's "Redd" liner with this.

NUDE: This is everything I wore on my wedding day, so I really love this whole lip!
Everything by MAC.
Lipstick: Brave
Liner: Stripdown
Gloss: Cremesheen Glass in "Partial to Pink"

What are some of the bold and nude lipsticks that you swear by? Would love to hear your faves!


  1. I love the red lipstick a lot! I may just go out and purchase it.

  2. Both of these colors look great on you!!!

    I was always a nude lip girl (Revlon's Soft Nude, MAC Cream de Nude, Wet n Wild 902C) all with a soft pink lip gloss over-top (like NARS turkish delight)

    I've just started wearing bold, bright lip colors this year, but I have to remember to 'tone down' my eye makeup if I have a bold lip!

  3. I see some diana warner earrings that looks just like mine! Love the bright lips! I sometimes get scared to wear such a bright color (but I'd LOVE to)... I usually just stick to my pail pink. Both look great! XO!

  4. OBSESSED with that nude shade -- it's absolutely stunning! Honestly, I rarely wear lipcolor... I think I need to start immediately.

  5. Love this post and I'm really looking forward to this series of posts!! I'm super scared of bold lipcolor. And I've been on the hunt for a "perfect nude" for years! Yes, years. Can't wait to see yours. (and...I may find a good recommendation!)

  6. Try out some of Tom Ford's lipsticks...they are AMAZING! True Coral is a gorgeous shade for summer!

  7. cool!

  8. You can totally pull off both of those looks - I love how you are so bold and daring with your color choices :)

  9. the look....really looks good on u

  10. I like Neutrogena gloss in Angel and Revlon gloss in Peach Petal for nudes. My lips are naturally red, and I don't look good in red lipstick so these tone them down.

  11. Actually, the Neutrogena color may be Whisper.

  12. Hey Lindsay!
    Thanks for dropping by at my blog and leaving love! :)
    Absolutely love both looks on you. I havent been brave enough to try bold lipstick yet. Maybe one day!


  13. LOVE both these looks - natural is so fabulous, but nothing beats a bold lip! My current fav for a red lip is Covergirl LipPefection Lipcolor in 300 Flame. GORG:)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your lovely comments :)

  14. Okay your lipstick comparisons are seriously helpful - love this!
