Nude Lip Color According to Skin Tone

Hey Mod girls!  Are you struggling to find the perfect nude lipstick shade that matches your skin tone? The nude lip trend is seen all over the red carpet by some celebs who have mastered the look. The trick to wearing a neutral hue is to actually think subtle touches of color. From beige to light washes of pink, a nude-toned lip can be quite flattering, especially when coupled with a smoky eye.

The prettiest nude lip color is slightly brighter or deeper than your skin tone. If you're pale, look for something with a hint of pink. Those with yellow or olive undertones or dark skin look best with sandy beiges.

For fair or pale skin: With lighter skin tones, avoid beige lipsticks, which will wash you out. Instead, look to soft pinks and peaches or pale apricot as your base shade.

Use bright coral shadow and gloss to get this look.

For the golden girls: If you have lots of golden undertones in your skin, go for creamy, caramel-toned nudes and warm beige’s. Avoid anything too cool, like grays or silver-toned shades.

For olive tones: If you have olive skin, you’re a lucky gal. Just about any nude shade will look great on you from beige to bronze to pinks.

For skin with yellow undertones: Think light, creamy-toned beiges like latte or mocha.

For dark-toned skin: Go for chocolate tones such as rich golden browns and coffees.

Other things to consider:

Exfoliate: Prep the lips before applying a nude tone to create a smooth surface.

Afraid your nude shade will look flat?: Consider wearing a semimatte lipstick for a slightly glossy finish.

For the cheeks: First dust on a bronzer and then add a pink or peach cream blush to brighten the face.

Emphasize eyes: If a chocolate-brown or smoldering gray-toned smoky eye isn’t your thing, try a black eyeliner with light shadow instead. Play up your eyes even more by creating emphasis on the brows.

By all means: Avoid frosty finishes.

XOXO Mod Girl Arlene!!
