Satiny Beige Lips Are Your Must-Have Beauty Accessory! from TheFind!

Neutral lips certainly aren't a new makeup commodity; in fact, they're practically a staple. But for this upcoming fall season especially, a no-frills nude lip shade will prove to be your best friend through the many beauty trends this season has in store! When the fall promises plenty of bold smokey eyes, intense color-play with liners and shadows, shimmery skin, bold brows, and glittery finishes, the perfect truly neutral lip can be hard to find. After all, even most nude or beige lip shades are either shimmery, glittery, or pack some serious high-wattage shine -- which are all gorgeous, but don't exactly off-balance as "neutrally" as you may like in order to pull off fall's more daring beauty looks. The key is to go for a soft, satiny nude shade -- somewhere in between a gloss and a lipstick -- which will give you a natural look that still looks done-up and pretty without making your face appear heavy.

Lipstick Queen seeks to give you the perfect product with her Oxymoron Matte gloss in Deafening Silence -- a sheer beige that's glossy without being intensely shiny or light-reflective, and simply amps up your natural lip color. For a little more impact, I love Smashbox's Sheer Color lip gloss in Illume, which gives a satiny shiny look without overpowering the rest of your makeup. If you're more into lipstick, try Stila Long Wear Lip Color in In The Nude for a sheer nude shade that goes on smooth and won't cake or crack mid-wear. And finally, if you like to dabble in multiple neutral shades, go for a palette like DuWop Liplingo in Nude, which provides a universally flattering beige lipstick with 4 coordinating glosses, so you can mix and match for your ideal neutral lip!
