If you want to make a statement with your makeup this fall, go bare. The nude lip was having a moment on the runways of many designers, including Marni and Prabal Gurung.

[MUSIC] I think the biggest makeup trend that we're seeing for fall is the no-makeup makeup look. And one part of this is the nude lip. The trend on the runway is really more of a matte finish or a satiny finish as opposed to a gloss. And what makes this lip great is that it goes with everything. You can pair it with any wardrobe and it always looks great. And this isn't a sheer lip. This isn't a lip balm. This is a statement lip. What's tricky about it is really finding the right shade of nude lip. So I think it's all about trial and errors. I think this lip is so popular with celebrities on the red carpet because it's a statement lip and it's really sexy. It's neutral, so it goes with anything. And it looks really beautiful. So a nice way to get this lipstick to blend in with your skin tone is to use a lip liner [INAUDIBLE] You wanna pick a shade that's similar to your skin tone and this should get you a nice, natural, polished look.
