The Brown Neutral Nude Edit

Browney, neutral, nude colours have been my go to look throughout all of autumn and winter. And while I'm looking forward to spring makeup and experimenting with colour, I'm enjoying the last few weeks of my go to winter look. So today I thought I'd share with you my favourite brown-y nudes.

This palette was such a good investment. It has a range of matte, shimmers and satin finishes, ranging from light medium to black. It can create a beautiful matte wearable, everyday look to something more dramatic in the evening. The shadows are butter soft, well pigmented and easy blend. My favourite shades are kitten, a shimmery Champaign colour, Individual - a medium matte brown and Heart - a matte taupe-y mauve colour. 

I just can't get enough of Makeup Geek shadows at the moment - super soft, super pigmented and just all round brilliant! My collection is growing rapidly. But my favourites are the matte brown shades. which are:

Latte - A cool toned medium matte brown. I like to use this in the crease or all over the lid.
Frappe - very similar to Latte only more warm in tone. This is a brilliant crease colour.
Coco Bear - A very warmed toned reddish matte brown. I love this in the outer V and along the lower lash line.
Crème Brulee - A light matte brown. The perfect transition shade.

Sleek A midsummers dream Eye and Cheek Palette | £9.99

I'm not too fussed about the eye shadows in the palette. Its all about the blushes! The palette contains two beautiful brown toned blushes. Sunrise is a bronzy, shimmery shade. This shade needs a light hand though or it can be way over the top. And suede is a lovely matte medium brown that adds warmth and looks stunning on the cheeks!

I can;t believe these blushes are just a pound! The shade Treat in particular is a lovely peach colour that I love using when I don't want matte brown eyes, lips and cheeks - that can look a bit much. This blush isn't the most pigmented blush I own but its perfect when I'm in a rush and I just want a subtle wash of colour.

I couldn't do a brown / nude edit without including my all time favourite nude lipstick! This is my perfect nude lipstick. The shade itself is a brown toned nude with slight pink undertones, in the trusty formula of MACs matte lipstick line. Check out the Nude Lipstick Edit for more of my favourite nude lipsticks.

Miliani Matte Lipstick in the shade Matte Beauty | £5

This is a brilliant affordable matte lipstick. The formula, lasting power and pigmentation are up there with MAC matte lipsticks. The shade is a beautiful mid toned brown. This is also a good dupe for MACs Taupe.

Maybelline Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencil in the Shade Nude Perfection | £4.99

This is a dream to apply. The fact it's a pencil makes it super convenient and its like having a lip stick and a lip pencil in one! I would say this is a satin finish, its matte but has a very slight sheen to it. The shade itself is a light brown tan shade, with very slight pink under tones. Another plus point is this is super affordable and very easy to get hold of the Uk.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in the shade Bitch Perfect | £23

If matte lipsticks aren't for you than this lipstick from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G line is perfect. Its super hydrating and comfortable on the lips, with pretty impressive staying power. This is a more pinky / coral-y nude, that would probably be more suited to paler skin tones. It will also be perfect for transitioning into the warmer months!

Gerard Cosmetic Hydro Matte Liquid Lipstick | £9.50

I'm obsessed with liquid lipstick at the moment, read my Liquid Lipstick Edit to see some of my current favourites. This offering from Gerard cosmetic in particular is one of the best! The shade Serenity is a more pinky nude, in fact it leans more pink on me but I wanted to include it as it may be a good nude for some skin tones. The formula of this is brilliant, its non drying, dries completely matte really quickly and lasts a good 6+ hours.

Have you tried any of these? What are your favourite nude shades?

Until next time...
