I have come to accept the fact that as much as I love a nude lip…

it really does not work for someone of my age and I just end up looking sickly and washed out.  So, I will continue to be faithful to my favourite neutral shades and leave the pale beiges, tawny buffs, and blush tones to the younger crowd.

Here as some of my favourite neutral picks:


Bobbi Brown’s True Pink is a cult classic…a new favourite is Pink Cloud.


NARS in Raquel…long lasting!


MAC’s Angel and Pink Plaid

And….always a lip liner, because without it your neutral lipstick will disappear into your complexion! The general rule is that your liner should be one shade darker than your natural lip colour.

mac_sku_M38022_640x600_0I’ve stuck with MAC liners for years…Plum and Perfect Posy.


To give your lipstick staying power…try smoothing on a tiny bit of concealer before your colour and then finish off with a pat of translucent matte powder.

Let me know what your favourite neutral lipstick is….and how you make it stay!
