How to Block Out Natural Lip Color/How to Create Nude Lips

Have you ever bought either a pale or vivid lipstick/gloss that just doesn’t look the same when you put it on your lips? If so, this technique is for you! This is how you can block out your natural lip color so that the color of your lip product will show up as it does when you swatch it on your hand.

These are also the same steps I use when I make my lips nude. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian like to wear dramatic smokey eyes with nude lips. Here’s how you can do it too!


Start off with clean bare lips. Apply a small amount of lip scrub with your finger to exfoliate your lips. Use your finger to rub your lips until you achieve desired smoothness. Lip scrubs usually contain sugar which helps remove dead skin, leaving your lips looking healthier and retaining moisture better.

This step is actually optional, but I recommended exfoliating yours lips if they are chapped to get nicer, smoother results.


Wipe your lips clean with a tissue. If you used a lip scrub, make sure you wipe off all of the lip scrub before moving on to the next step.


Block your natural lip color using either a foundation, concealer, or a product specifically made for this purpose (such as MAC Lip Erase Lip Balm in “Dim” which I’m using here).

I like using my finger to apply and smooth out the nude color on my lips.

Note: MAC Lip Erase Lip Balm comes in 2 colors, “Pale” and “Dim”. I’m using the darker of the two. If your skin color is darker than mine, I would recommend using the same foundation you use on your face.


Wait until the product you applied in Step 3 to set on your lips. I usually do this technique right after I finish my foundation, so that I can do the rest of my makeup while the lip erase lip balm sets in place. Then when I’m done with my makeup, I apply my lip color.

If you want to go for a nude lip look, then you can apply a clear or pale lipstick or lip gloss and you’re done!

If you are just blocking your natural lip color, then apply lipstick or whatever lip product you want to use.

Here I’m using MAC Slimshine Lipstick in “Bare” (nude pale pink color with shine). Compare the picture from Step 4 with this one where I applied the color directly to my lips without blocking. Blocking my natural lip color helps to match the true color of the lipstick. This lip color still looks nice even without blocking, but it all depends on what type of look you’re going for!

The lip scrub I am using in Step 1 is Smashbox Emulsion Lip Exfoliant:

The directions do not mention this particular scrub to be edible, but it does have a peppermint scent that I enjoy. This lip scrub also has poppy seeds in addition to sugar to help with exfoliating (it’s that black seed on my lip in Step 1 :) ).
