“To create Naomi’s look, I used my favorite nude du jour, which is called Deepness by Chanel,” says Jo. “Even though it looks like a black lipstick, it has a really sheeny, balmy finish. It’s going to read balmy, it’s going to read sheer, and it’s going to look really cool and fashion-y. For me, this is the ultimate 2020 nude—I’ve used it on so many red carpets and it looks just slightly different, but extremely beautiful, on every single person I’ve used it on.”
Jo’s expert tip: If you want a lipstick that looks less nude and has more color, try the shade called Mood, instead, which is a bit more berry. Also, if you don’t have the lipstick, you can apply a clear, glossy lip balm to the back of your hand, and rub the same shadow you used on your eye into it to blend. Once it’s completely mixed, apply it to your lips with your fingertip, and voilà!
“This is a really cool way to utilize the products you have and create a beautiful monochromatic look—you can even mix your eyeshadow with the same bronzer to create the ultimate contour for more cheek-sculpt,” she adds. “Products, if you invest in them, can do multiple things—especially if the texture is really good and they’re blendable.”
