Nude shades are on everyone’s lips and it’s not a trend that’s going away anytime soon. With an array of colours to choose from, it is important to choose the right nude to flatter your skin tone. The perfect nude will give you a youthful and effortless look.
Global Makeup Educator Shawn Towne gives his advice on how to choose the right nude lipstick. So, let’s break it down into one easy guide so you know what to look out for next time you shop.
First, let’s explore the best type of nude for your skin’s undertone.
Perfect Nude Lipstick for Cool Skin Tones:
“If you have a lot of pink in your complexion, a warmer based brown is best,” says Shawn.
He recommends Craving Lip Fixation® or Sharon PureMoist® Lipstick.
Perfect Nude Lipstick for Warm Skin Tones:
“If you have warmer or neutral skin tones (golden undertones), cooler browns are ideal,” says Shawn. You’ll want to try shades like Luscious PlayOn® Lip Crayon or Raspberry PureGloss® Lip Gloss.
Now that you know whether to opt for a cool or warm brown based on your skin’s undertone, the next step is whether you should opt for a beige, medium or brown lipstick shade.
