How To Find The Perfect Nude Lipstick For Your Skintone

How To Find The Perfect Nude Lipstick For Your Skintone

 

A nude lipstick is an essential in every girl’s makeup bag but can be a tad bit difficult to find. The truth is, the shade that suits your bestie may NOT suit you. Why? Because of our skin tone. Simply put, nude lipstick is the shade closest to the natural colour of your lips. A nude sheen, a matte finish or the right shade that MATCHES your skintone, can help you redefine a nude, minimalist look.

Be For Beauty’s newest contributor, Rhea Guliani tells you how to find the perfect nude lip colour.

Things To Remember

Nude doesn’t mean anything beige or brown. Nude lip colour, like the term suggests is a lip shade that comes close to your natural lip colour. Going a shade darker than your skin tone can transform your look.

Skin undertones are not an easy task to understand. Swatching lipsticks on the back of your hand can give you an idea of what will suit your skin tone the best. Any nude lip color that makes your hand look blue/green should stay on the shelves itself.  To enjoy the subtlety and sophistication of a nude lip look, follow this guide.

Nude Lipstick for Light Skintones:

Our beauties with the snow white complexions need a nude lipstick which does not make them look tired and washed out. Enhance the pink undertone of your complexion by using a touch of a light pink like rose, blush, salmon and flamingo lipstick that brings your complexion.

Nude Lip Shades for Medium and Olive Skintones:

Girls with olive skin undertones have the hardest time finding the perfect nude lip colour that does not make it look like they have bleached their lips. They can end up looking like they are wearing their concealer as their lipstick. To avoid this, wear nude shades that are a shade or two darker than your complexion. Avoid going lighter with nude lip shades as it will not help your skin tone. A peach or purple undertone can also look nice

The Right Nude Lipstick For Dusky Skintones

Going for very light nudes in pink or beige is a big NO NO for our dusky toned women. They should opt for chocolatey nudes or shades of medium brown that come with undertones of red. Adding gloss to your look will give your lips dimension and make them stand out even with a nude lip colour.
