The Perfect Nude Lip feat. MAC "Hue" Lipstick

Hey Guys! So we all know I love those natural, earthy colours when it comes to makeup so it will be no surprise to you all that more often than not I am rocking a nude lip. To me the beauty of a nude coloured lip is that it goes with anything from the most intense smokey eye look to the barely there look and for me it is one of the most classic looks going.
So I thought today I would share with you all how I get my perfect nude lip. Of course these products wont work for everyone because not everyone has the same colour of eyes or the same under tones to their skin but never the less I think this will be helpful to a lot of people.
The products I use are
Mac Lipstick In "Hue" £15
It is a glaze finish which means it is slightly sheerer than other Mac formulas but is still incredibly pigmented. It is an absolutely gorgeous colour and I think it is definitely worth the investment. It goes on extremely well and I find I don't even need to use a mirror when applying which is always a bonus especially when you are in a rush. The only slight down side I would say is the longevity of it as it could be better however this is only a minor annoyance and as it's so fantastic in every other way I don't mind having to apply it every 3 hours or so.
Max Factor Color Elixir lip liner in "Pink Petal" £4.99
The lip liner I use when doing a nude lip is by Max Factor and it's a really good lip liner in my opinion. It's waxy enough that it stays put for hours (no reapplying this in the bathroom) but is still creamy enough to be comfortable enough to wear everyday all day. 
And that's it! I don't personally put a gloss over the top because I don't think an overly glossy lip looks good on me. There are also amazing drugstore nude lipsticks but these are the products I would use for my "Perfect" nude lip. Hope you enjoyed the post!

I purchased all the products mentioned above with my own money and all opinions are my own, as always.
