As well as looking subtle and sophisticated, nude lips have been a huge beauty trend for 2017, and thanks to Meghan's influence, it's a look that's set to continue well into the New Year. "The trend for sheer, nude lips and more natural make-up was first highlighted on the Spring/Summer 2017 catwalks and has been seen on bloggers and celebrities ever since," MEMImakeup.com co-founder and cosmetics expert Millie Watson said. "This look creates an illusion of being make-up free but with full coverage. The nude trend looks set to stay."
