Beautifully Bare

71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, America - 12 Jan 2014. Pale but Beautiful Lips.


Muted lips were pale but interesting on this season’s Prada runway.

From barely there nude to beige pink pouts, make-up at the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 14 collection was a masterclass in statement subtlety.

We caught up with top make-up artist Georgia Hayes to find out how to recreate a Prada pucker.

“I’m a huge fan of this look,” says Georgia, who has perfected the faces of countless models.

“Muted lips not only look fantastic but the neutral colour means you can really go to town with your eyes.

“Just make sure that your lips are buffed and moisturised before you use a nude lip colour as it can be quite unforgiving if your lips are chapped.”

To avoid looking too pale and washed out it’s important to balance out your skin tone.

“If you’ve got pale skin, look for more pinky beige hues and if you’ve got a darker skin tone, you could look at more true nudes,” advises Georgia.

“Dior Lip Colour in Angelique Beige and Tom Ford Lip Colour in Blush Nude are both favourites of mine.”

Georgia says that if you’re keen to go nude, you’ll also need to think about texture.

“Lips were velvety matte at Prada but if you want to go for a more sheer look, Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Bare Sparkle is my new favourite.

“If in doubt, opt for a sheer pinky beige as this is probably the easiest nude hue to pull off.”
