Lipsticks lipsticks everywhere! As you are strolling down the makeup aisle destined to find that perfect nude shade that you have been seeking, you become over whelmed because there are so many shades of "Nude" lippies to choose from! Nude lips are so popular right now and I understand why. It's a splash of color on your lips giving you that "I just woke up like dis" look without trying to hard. But finding the right nude lipstick for your skin tone can seem like an impossible task. You don't want a color so opaque it washes you out giving you "Night of the Living Dead" lips, or to dark as if you are attempting to do some 90's dark lip trend that you totally failed at (No Bueno)! Well have no fear, even if you've made the mistake of walking out of your house looking like a zombie (I'm sure we all have at some point). Finding your perfect nude is not as impossible as you think. After doing some research I have a few brief tips on how to find the perfect nude shade for your skin tone!
Light - Fair Divas (Fair to Milky Skintone)
Go for a softer baby pink, try not to go to beige this will make you look dead! But if you are more on the light side feel free to go for a more rosey beige nude. Make sure to keep in mind you want more warmth in the lips creating separation from the skin.
Light olive skintones can get away with wearing pinky or beige nudes! Just keep in mind warmer nude tones work best on your complexion.
Warmer olive skintones should try using a caramel beige lipstick that’s darker than the shade of your skin. Add a sheer gloss for a added POP bringing out your lips even more.
Cooler olive skintones you are more versatile. You can go with a lighter nude or a darker nude. In most cases using a lighter nude won't let your lips disappear.
Tan, Medium, & Caramel Divas
If you just got an amazing tan or you are working with a au-natural tan try a glossy, shimmery nude to bring out the sun-kissed look of your skin.
Medium tones with a slight pink undertone - a pink-toned nude shade that’s lighter than your skin tone would look amazing.
Caramel tones try a balance between beige and caramel nudes. Add a little gloss and liner to make the lip stand out more.
Chocolate - Mocha Divas
Mocha skintones try using a rosy-pink mauve with gold flecks, or a caramel rose with silver flecks nude.
Chocolate - Darker skintones try using.a nude shade lighter than your actual skintone to brighten up the face. Or just try
sticking to a gloss formula for a more natural-looking effect.Either way works just fine.
Remember makeup is meant to be fun. It is all about trial and era, if at first you don't succeed, wipe if off and try again.
