The Ultimate Guide To Wearing Nude Lipstick
Nude lipstick is the perfect way to achieve a natural, understated look. It can be used to enhance your natural beauty, or to create a more sophisticated look for a night out. But how do you choose the right shade of nude lipstick, and how do you apply it without looking like you’re wearing no makeup at all?
Here’s our guide to choosing and wearing the perfect nude lipstick:
Choosing the right shade of nude
The first step is to choose the right shade of nude for your skin tone. If you have a fair skin tone, opt for a pink-toned nude. If you have a medium skin tone, choose a beige-toned nude. And if you have a dark skin tone, go for a brown-toned nude.
Once you’ve selected the right shade of nude, it’s time to find the perfect lipstick. If you want a natural look, go for a sheer lipstick. But if you want more coverage, choose a creamy lipstick or a matte lipstick.
Applying your nude lipstick
Now that you’ve selected the perfect nude lipstick, it’s time to apply it. Start by lining your lips with a lip liner in a similar shade to your lipstick. This will help to prevent your lipstick from bleeding.
Next, apply your lipstick to your lips. Start in the center of your upper lip and work your way out. Then do the same on your lower lip.
Finally, use a lip brush to blend the edges of your lipstick. This will help to create a more natural look.
And that’s it! You’re now ready to rock your perfect nude lipstick.
When it comes to choosing the right nude lipstick, it’s all about finding the perfect shade to complement your skin tone. But with so many different shades of nude to choose from, it can be a little daunting trying to find the right one for you.
Here’s our ultimate guide to finding the perfect shade of nude lipstick for your skin tone.
For fair skin
If you have fair skin, you’ll want to look for a nude lipstick that has a peachy or pink undertone. Avoid lipsticks that are too pale, as they will wash you out.
Some of our favourite peachy nudes for fair skin include MAC’s Velvet Teddy and NARS’s Schiap.
For medium skin
If you have medium skin, you can get away with wearing nudes with a bit more colour. Look for nudes with a beige or caramel undertone.
Some of our favourite beige nudes for medium skin include Tom Ford’s Spanish Pink and Charlotte Tilbury’s Nude Kate.
For dark skin
If you have dark skin, you can go for a nude lipstick with a rich, chocolatey undertone. Just make sure it’s not too dark, as you don’t want it to look like you’re wearing a brown lipstick.
Some of our favourite chocolatey nudes for dark skin include MAC’s Stone and NARS’s Jungle Red.
