{Beauty Panel} How to Choose a Nude Lip Colour

Wearing a nude lip is a great compliment to a smoky eye. But choosing the right nude lip shade can be a little tricky. A nude shade for you may not be the same nude shade as your best friend. It’s all about complimenting your skin tone. There are hundreds of nude shades out there to suit each person’s skin tone. But if the wrong shade is chosen, you could look washed out.
Here are a few tips on how to choose & wear the perfect nude lip shade:
  • If you are fair-skinned, choose shades that have a soft pink-beige undertone.
  • If you are medium to olive skinned, choose a rose-pink-beige or peach undertone.
  • If you are dark-skinned, choose a caramel/bronze or berry undertone.
  • Don’t choose a shade that is lighter than your skin colour. This can give you a washed out appearance.
  • If you find that your lip pigmentation can be a bit uneven or dark, you can always neutralize it by first applying concealer (same colour as your skin) to your lips as a base before applying the lipstick.
  • When wearing a nude lip, wear blush to help brighten up the face.

I have medium to olive skin. One of my favourite nude lipsticks is Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉ – Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 in #3 (Ultimate Beige). It has a rosey, mauve undertone to compliment my skin.
