It's a foregone conclusion when two beauty powerhouses weigh in on an IGTV Live that it's going to trend globally. And that's precisely what happened when Nikki Make-up (opens in new tab) got together with Victoria Beckham (opens in new tab) to talk through her favourite nude lipsticks from VB's new Posh collection. 

Nikki Make-up (aka Nikki Wolff) has a clear make-up (opens in new tab) aesthetic for her 1.5m Instagram followers and A-list clients like Dua Lipa : impossible glowing skin, brushed-up brows (opens in new tab) and full lips. 

Victoria is a huge fan, too, having been Introduced to Nikki's work by Nicola Pelz, (opens in new tab) Brooklyn's fiancé

And it seems the feeling is mutual for Nikki, who let's face it, is pretty clued up on which nude lipsticks combine sophistication with just the right dose of bad-girl edginess.

"I absolutely adore the new collection," said Nikki. "Not only have you succeeded in creating the perfect nudes for multiple skin tones but they have this really beautiful, creamy, moisturizing texture that makes them so wearable. Sometimes you can find the perfect nude but and not necessarily get on with texture."

And her go-to shade of nude?

"This one is a peachy pinky nude called Pout and I absolutely love wearing this one," Nikki went on to say. "You can see it looks so natural. I feel like when it goes on it's like a peachy version of your natural- lips-but-better shade. And when we're talking about the perfect nude lip that's what it's supposed to do, almost look like a natural lip shade but just on your best day."

Nikki's advice was clear: go for those more muted nudes in summer and for deeper skin tones try a brown-based nude.

"Sometimes, in my experience, it can be hard to find a brown nude. If you've got an olive or slightly deeper skin tone finding a nude that doesn't have too much peach or pink in it is actually quite tricky and Spice (opens in new tab) is the perfect browny nude. "

So there you have it: the perfect nude lipstick to look like you made some effort on your Zoom call.
