How To: Pick The Perfect Nude Lipstick For Your Skin Tone

A makeup philosophy I love to live by is “look like yourself- only better”. Makeup should enhance your naturally beautiful features, not hide them. To nail the perfect everyday makeup look, an understated nude lip is a must have. Finding the perfect nude lipstick can be a strenuous beauty task, so ditch the lacklustre lippy selection with this simple guide to finding the perfect ‘my lips, only better’ shade according to your skin tone.


Choose a nude with peachy/pink undertones. You want to steer clear from lighter, cool tones to avoid looking washed out and sickly. A sheer formula in a shade slightly darker will add warmth to your face and provide you with an effortlessly healthy glow with more definition.

Light pinky nudes are perfect for fair-skinned ladies that want to enhance their natural lip colour. Play with caramel undertones to brighten up your complexion.

Girls with medium skin tones should go with a shade darker than their skin tone. Warm, peachy based nudes are perfect to bring out the natural flush in your cheeks and warmth in your face.

Olive skinned girls with warm undertones- try highly pigmented, creamy mocha shades. Girls with cool undertones stick to cool-toned pinks.

Darker skin tones should opt for slightly lighter nudes than their skin tone and go all out with a gloss or satin finish to define the lips and give a fresh and plump look.
