Like a little black dress, the perfect nude lipstick is one of my ultimate beauty essentials. A nude lip is a great way to make your look put together without looking like you put any effort (Think Olivia Pope… YAAAASSS hunnay ?? ). Its great for both daytime and night time looks and it looks good with literally any outfit.
When it comes to Nude lipsticks and Women of Colour (WOC), sometimes it would seem like the two things dont or should not mix. I vividly remember the first time I wore nude lipstick… it was literally the nudest of nudes- Wet and Wild 902C (google it)- I thought I was looking FLYYYY only to look at the pictures now and cringe ?. I looked liked I had just eaten a bag of frosting.
Long story short… no matter what nude lipstick you are trying (esp if you are darker skinned like me.. please do not forget to use a lip liner)!!!
These are my top 3- tried and tested.. cant leave home without Nude Lipstick
1. Mocha- Mac
2. Viva Glam- Mac
3. Fast Play- Mac
Because the perfect nude lipstick has a lot to do with your skin tone, I suggest testing before you buy anything new. And if you’re unsure, the simplest route is to head to your local beauty counter and ask for a second opinion.
