How To Choose The Right Nude Lip Shade For Your Skin Tone

Nude Lips For Your Skin Tone


For years, pinks and reds were the favored shades to paint a pout with, but now red carpets and runways are flooded with neutral lipsticks. Simple yet sexy, nude lips pair perfectly with a dramatic smoky eye or an understated natural look—and the effect can even give the illusion of having larger lips. But finding the right colour can be more difficult than selecting the correct foundation! Here's our guide to finding the perfect nude lip shade to match your skin tone.


Nude Lip Shade for Fair Skin

For fair / pale skin: Avoid beiges which can wash you out, go for soft pinks, peaches or apricots, like Tahiti Tinted Lip Balm or Kara Sea Lipshine.

Makeup Artist Tip: If you have a naturally dark lip colour and you want to get true colour from your lip shade, you can apply a very light layer of liquid foundation over your lips before swiping on your desired shade.  Before trying out this tip make sure your lips are well moisturized with Conquer 3-in-1 Lip Treatment.
