The Ultimate Guide To Choosing Nude Lipsticks For Different Skin Tones

Since over a month, celebrities and influencers have been wearing brown or nude lip gloss. The browns range from matching-mannequins to pink or nude. How do you pick the best nude lip color for your skin tone.

The shades on the opposite end of the spectrum are so similar to your skin tone that you appear as if your lips do not exist. Most of us avoid this look because we love our lip color! On the opposite end of the spectrum, you’ll find pinks that look nude but aren’t really. Shawn Towne, Global Makeup Expert, gave us his tips on choosing the perfect nude lip color.

What is the best brown/nude lipstick for my skin tone?

Brown or nude can be worn by everyone, but to achieve the most natural appearance, you shouldn’t choose a straight shade of brown. Pink-browns have a warmth that enhances the color.

A Nude Lipstick for Cool Skin Tones

Shawn says that if you have a lot pink in your skin tone, it’s best to go with a brown shade. He suggests Craving Lipfixation or Sharon PureMoist Lipstick.

Nude Lipsticks for Warm Skin Tones

Shawn says that cooler browns work best for skin tones with warmer undertones (golden). Try shades such as Luscious PlayOn Lip Crayon and Raspberry PureGloss Lip Glaze.

The Best Nude Lipstick to Match Your Skin Tone

You now know how to choose the best nude lip color based on the undertone of your skin. The next step is deciding whether you want a beige or medium brown shade.

Nude Lipstick For Fair Skin

You can add color with a rosy beige without looking too garish. Try a sheer beige color to tone down the natural pink of your lips.

Nude Lipstick for Dark Skin

Avoid any shades that look “nude” on the tube if you have darker skin. They will be too pale. Opt for golden chocolate, rose-brown, or caramel shades.

Can you wear bare lips at any age?

Yes, that’s the short answer! When we are young, browns look great on our skin. Shawn says that as we age our skin may fade, so it’s a good idea to use brighter colors. The beauty of brown lippies is that they look natural even with a brighter undertone. Lauren PureMoist and Desire Liquid Fixation are two beautiful, vibrant browns that create a youthful look on the lips. Browse our entire collection of brown lipsticks.
