Nude Attitude: Best Nude Lipsticks for your Complexion

By   | 

The majority of us ladies love a bold red lip – it's that small change that makes us feel like we stand out, adding an instant touch of glamour. But while the red lip is always popular and always on trend, it's not the hottest lip trend for summer 2015. This summer, it's time to go bare, with the nude lip being a huge trend in the beauty department. Subtle for daytime with barely there make-up and dramatic enough for night when teamed with a smoky eye, the nude lip is extremely versatile and one you definitely need this summer.


When it comes to the nude lip, it's not a 'one shade fits all' kind of deal. Each skin tone will suit different tones of nude, and this helpful guide will ensure you're choosing the right shades for your complexion.


Fair Skin

Light and fair skin tones should choose a lipstick with pink and beige undertones that creates a separation from the skin to lip. It shouldn't be so light that it makes the skin appear paler and flatter than it is, so beware.

Medium Skin

Those with a medium skin tone should choose a lipstick with a coral or orange undertone so there is good definition of the lip. Medium skin tones may need some extra help making the lip pop, so apply a liner just a shade darker around the line of the lip and blend with the lipstick.

Olive Skin

Those with olive skin tones should chose a more caramel tone of lipstick with beige undertones, ensuring that the shade is darker than the skin. Matte and glossy tones both work really well with olive skin tones, so feel free to explore different textures.

Dark Skin

For dark skin, definition is important, so lips definitely should be lined with a darker shade before filling in with a dark nude lipstick that is a different tone to the skin. To give extra definition to the lips, add a touch of a clear gloss to the centre of the lips.
