Firstly, don't confuse nude lips to making it seem like you have none at all, just allow it to brighten up your face or town down any eye look that you have going on. Such as when wearing heavy smokey eyes, (Kim Kardashian) she always plays it out with a nude lip or a hint of pinks, why? You want the main focus to be on your eyes, not your lips. When wearing any type of look or going for any you want to make sure THATS your main focus not everything else, then it'll look.. complicated-chaotic (I know in a face? LOL)
Here are some tips I found on BellaSugar.
- For fair or pale skin : Avoid beige colors, avoid any creame colored lipsticks because it will truly wash out your face, try and go with something with a hint of color in it such as "High Tea from MAC".
- Golden Undertones: If you just got a tan or have some golden undertones/yellow undertone go with something beiges, and caramel underetones, it wont wash out your face at all instead brighten in and have some contrast in context with your skintone shade. "Promiscuous from NARS"
- Olive skin: Based on Bella Sugar if you have olive skin tones then you dont have to worry about colors, but I wouldn't suggest that. I have a little of Olive skintone and Yellow, I feel something not too light like beiges, I feel something with a little color helps. Any mauvey nudes are great such as "Till Tomorrow from MAC".
- For a Dark skintone: Coffee colored lipsticks, make sure you don't buy something really really light as though it looks... I don't even know the word lol. Just try not to get something outrageously light, I understand you want it to be nude, but not that nude.
Hope that helps :)
