I really believe in the all important lip pencil. While some may see it as an unnecessary step in one's makeup routine, I feel it adds so much with so little effort. The key to perfecting this look is finding the right lip pencil in the best shade for you. I love Boots No. 7 Line & Define lip pencil in nude. It's only 7 dollars and it beats any high-end pencils I have tried. Bonus, you can find it at Target!
Its a tawny nude, not too brown, not too pink, it's a your-lips-but-better defining shade.
Besides being the perfect nude shade, it is soft and moisturizing and doesn't need to be sharpened. I use it doing a glam nude lip look at night, but my favorite is using it during the day, slipped on with a little lip balm for that natural, polished pout.
Rumor has it, Keira Knightley had boxes of it shipped to her while on location shooting Pirates of the Caribbean!
