I’m very excited about this post today because it was a reader request! This reader is a big fan of the nude lip trend but is having such a hard time finding the right one to match her darker skin tone.
I remember talking to my cousin once and she said she would love to wear a nude lip but she just couldn’t find the right one, she says she always felt that the colors never played with her skin tone. I put the comment behind me thinking “how hard could it be?” and I got my answer when I heard concern from one of my best friends, when we were at the store looking for lip sticks, preferably in nude. I then realized wow it is a challenge, So I have done my research and today i’m going to bring you a list of the best nudes for every skin tone!!
A nude lip isn’t something new. We see a lot of and it continues to go strong. But as simple as it may sound, it is a bit tricky to find the perfect nude shade that matches your complexion. It should look natural and work with your skin tone not against it. Just like red lipsticks, there are a million shades to choose from.
One of the best tips when looking for a nude lip is to stay away from anything that has a beige or grey undertone. It will wash you out,and will give you a bad complexion. Always look for a pale pink peach hue. For fair to light skinned women, nude lipsticks that have a rose or pink tone work best. For women who are medium, tan and olive skinned a nude lip that has a rose undertone works best. For women of color or those who have darker skin, nude lipsticks that have a bronze or caramel tint work best.
Now here are Some lipsticks to choose:
