How To Wear Beige Lipstick (Without Looking Washed Out)
Question:How can I wear pale beige lipstick without looking washed out?
If you look washed out, you're wearing a shade that's too pale for your complexion. The solution: Prep your lips with a concealer -- pat it on your lips first to mute them. This way, you won't need a really pale lipstick to get the look, which can make you look washed out. Try a warm golden- or yellow-nude color, and opt for a little shine rather than matte. For a natural look, don't go more than one shade lighter than your skin color.
Next, offset nude lips by accentuating the rest of your features -- add a bright blush on the apple of your cheeks, and an eyeliner and lots of mascara to make your eyes stand out.
