There’s something about summer that just makes us want to step out of the house nude. And by nude we don’t mean walking into work buck naked (although, that would be a sight), but heading out with a light dusting of nude makeup–faking the au naturale look, as some would say.
Don’t get us wrong, we love dark lips, eyes and a heavily contoured face–hey, we feel like bonafide models when we do it–but with the sun beating down on a hot, sticky, humid day, the last thing we need to see is our couture melting into our skin and our lips drying out. Honestly, all we want is to pop something on that’ll make our skin and lips look refreshed and awake in seconds. Now, we’ve found one cute, little product that does just that.
Canadian beauty company Nudestix has come out with a brand new crayon that promises to enhance your look in two simple steps. Their Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm allows you to draw your way to a nude face. Yay. The multi-purposed crayon–yes, it’s a crayon, how fun is that?–comes in eight different colours (the third one from the left is our fave). And, it’s formulated with over 30 per cent super-hydrating lip-protecting plant oils–so say goodbye to dry cheeks and lips.
All you have to do is colour your cheeks and blend it in with your fingers, then just swipe it on your lips for some added colour. Super easy. Plus, it comes in a collectable tin that also contains a tiny mirror and pencil sharpener, which means all the essentials will fit right in your purse.
Looking good while on the go will never get easier than this.
Who it’s for:
Those who want to rock the nude look with little to no effort. (Emphasis on little to no!)
