Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm in ‘Sense’, £35 | Hourglass

Recommended by: Alex Reader, Make-Up Artist

“If you’re after a product that is hydrating but also has pay off, this is perfect. A cross between a tinted balm, lip gloss and lipstick, it has the most beautiful pigment with that second-skin-like texture, all while plumping the lips. It glides on effortlessly without any tack or sticky residue. I like to use it on its own for a day-to-day ‘throw on’ colour then vamp it up with a lip liner for the evening. I find it suits every skin tone.”

Lip Power Matte in ‘117’, £35 | Giorgio Armani

Recommended by: Rafeeka Khan, Skincare & Beauty Expert

“You can’t go wrong with a good nude lip and I’ve been wearing this one in shade 117 recently. It’s the perfect muted mauve nude for autumn.”

Matte Revolution Lipstick in ‘Walk Of No Shame’, £27 | Charlotte Tilbury

Recommended by: Kelly Dawn, Make-Up Artist

“This flatters every skin tone – whether it’s pressed on as a light stain or applied directly from the bullet for more impact. On lighter skin tones, press it on to create a natural ‘bitten’ effect or apply properly for a more vampy finish. On darker skin tones, it comes off as a prettier, soft pink. It’s a staple in my kit.”

SuperStay Vinyl Ink Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in ‘Lippy’, £11.99 | Maybelline

recommended by: Levi-Jade Taylor, Make-Up Artist

“I love a sheer, tinted lip look, and this is one product I’ve found lasts all day with a glossy and natural finish. It has a water-thin consistency that glides over the lips for a long-lasting stain that feels comfortable all day.”

Peptide Lip Tint in 'Ribbon', £16 | Rhode

Recommended by: Sophie Tilley, Make-Up Artist

“I’ve been loving Rhode, but I was particularly excited by these new tinted lip treatments – in particular the ‘Ribbon’. A pale pink would suit all skin tones and looks fab alone as a nude/natural shade or you can add a liner for more definition. As it’s glossy, it can be quite glam if you build on it. Bonus points for the fact it’s a lip treatment which works on hydration too.”

MoistureGlow Plumping Lip Serum in ‘Mocha Glow’, From £26 | Makeup By Mario

Recommended by: Adeola Gboyega, Make-Up Artist & SL Beauty Contributor

“This has been my top nude lipstick for a while because of its super-flattering cool-tone cocoa-brown shade. Hydrating and glossy, it’s formulated like a balm which beautifully plumps my lips, giving them a radiant dewy shine.”

Wet Lip Oil Gloss in ‘Revealed’, £20 | Kosas

Recommended by: Ashley Dayes, Make-Up Artist

“This has such a gorgeous formula which encompasses all the benefits of a lip treatment oil with the colour of a sheer lipstick. I love that it’s non sticky and super nourishing – perfect for the colder months.”

Futurelipstick Matte in ‘Sweet Life’, £25 | Beauty Pie

Recommended by: Alex Reader, Make-Up Artist

“This is what I call the perfect ‘throw on’ nude. It’s a must-have in your make-up bag. Despite its matte, velvety finish, it’s extremely hydrating and the colour payoff is instant – you only need one swipe. I’m yet to find a skin tone this doesn’t suit.”

Crushed Oil-Infused Lipgloss, £25 | Bobbi Brown

Recommended by: Mira Parmar, Make-Up Artist 

“A non-sticky hybrid, this natural nude lip gloss is infused with rich botanical oils which leave the lips feeling nourished, hydrated and super glossy too.”

Available at BobbiBrown.co.uk

Rouge Coco Flash Lipstick in ‘Boy’, £37 | Chanel

Recommended by: Frankie Neal, Make-Up Artist

“This is such a flattering daytime colour. The sheer finish works for everyone, and the brown undertones will warm up your complexion. It’s great on its own, over a lip liner or even worn on top of another colour.”

Lip Serum Balm, £18 | Ruby Hammer

Recommended by: Ruby Hammer MBE, Make-Up Artist

“I love using a Berry shade as a deeper reddish nude (perfect for darker skin tones). I use it as my everyday shade then switch up in the evenings for something glossier. My current evening go-to is Posh Gloss by Victoria Beckham in Poolside – a neutral rosy brown that flatters deeper skin tones.”
