In Search of the Perfect Nude Lip

Kim Kardashian may not be the best role model in the world, but I think she has definitely earned the title of Beauty Icon.  Let's face it, she is one of the most beautiful women in the world, and her makeup is always flawless.  Her signature nude lip is one of my favorite trends, especially for ladies with medium/olive skin tones.  It is a perfect look all year round, and gives you the opportunity to play up dark eyes.

I have been attempting my own nude lip for months, but I haven't gotten it quite right until now.  Most lip colors ended up wearing off quickly, or making my lips look very dry.  Others were too light and completely washed out my lips.  Today, I found the solution to all my problems - e.l.f. Studios' Lip Stain in Heartbreaker.

Check out my rendition of Kim K's signature look after the jump...

First, using e.l.f.'s Feather Proof Lip Liner in Natural Blush, I lined my lips.  Then, I applied the lip stain and waited for it to dry.  e.l.f.'s lip stain comes with a clear gloss on the other end of the wand, but I didn't really care for it (too sticky) so I just used a clear gloss of my own on top.  Easy as pie, and so far it's stayed on through a couple hours of eating, drinking, and talking.  Best part - you can buy your own for only three bucks!

P.S.  As you can see, I dyed the pink and purple out of my hair...I am quite sad about it.
