How To Pick The Right Nude Lipstick For Your Skin Tone

Written By:

Nude lipsticks are extremely popular. And why wouldn't they be? They look great on everyone. But picking the right one can be quite a challenge. Here's how to pick the right nude lipstick for your skin tone.

It is often really difficult to figure out which nude lipstick to go for, and that is why, it is suggested that you NEVER buy a nude lipstick online. You need to try it out before you buy it.

With us Indians, there is often a risk of the nude lipstick washing us out. You can't just go into a store and decide to buy a lipstick without trying it first, and also, if a certain nude lipstick looks good on fairer skin tones, it does not guarantee that it would look good on you.

That is why, it is really important to be careful when picking out a nude lipstick. Because everyone needs a signature nude lipstick that they can use on a regular basis. Here's how to pick the nude lipstick for your skin tone.


1. Fair:

For people with fair skin tones, you should go for a two shades above your actual skin tone because you don't want to look like you've applied your foundation to your lips. Light brown and dusty pinks work best in such cases.


2. Pale:

Go for a light baby pink colour if your skin is pale, if the nude is too light, you'd risk looking like a zombie or maybe even ill.


3. Light Olive:

Definitely go for a beige lipstick shade, but edge closer to a dark beige as opposed to the one that is too light.


4. Medium:

Avoid heading too close to browns, you want a pink toned lipstick with hints of brown in it. This complexion can get washed out quite easily, so be careful.


5. Caramel:

If you have slightly dark skin, but not quite dark, go for a nude gloss with gold flecks in it.


6. Dark:

The opposite applies to dark skin tones. Go for a lipstick that is two shades lighter than your actual skin tone, as darker browns may start to clash with your skin.
