How to choose the Perfect Nude Lipstick

Lipsticks have reigned us since the beginning of Fashion, be it worn by Royals and Noble as a status symbol, or by the iconic Marilyn Monroe making the Rouge Lips all the rage in the 1950s.

Nude Lipsticks have taken us by a storm in the last decade and these not only give you an effortless natural everyday look, but they can also add a hint of sophistication to a much glamorized evening makeup look.

Now, when we have an enormous variety of shades of Nude lipsticks to choose from, we can follow a simple 3 step formula to get the right shade as per our skin-tone.

How to choose the Perfect Nude Lipstick

Step 1: Find Your Undertone

Look at the veins on your wrist. What colour are they? If your veins reflect a blue hue, then you have a cool undertone. If they tend to be blue-greenish, then you have a neutral undertone. And if the hue is green, then you have a warm undertone.

Step 2: Match to your Lips and the Undertone

The rule of thumb for nude lips is to match it with your natural lip-color or go a tone darker. As said by Olivia Chantecaille “A good nude should work with your coloring, not fight it”.

For a subtle finish to your lips, you need to find a shade that compliments your undertone too.

Step 3: Line those Lips!

This sounds old-fashioned, but lip liners are your best friend when you desire perfection. Nude Lips require dimension and depth to look more fuller, naturally contoured and give the right color pay-off.

While getting a perfect nude lipstick for your skin tone, pick a nude lip pencil that is two shades darker.

Let us apply the Perfect Nude Lipstick

Begin with lining your lips with a brown or darker nude lip pencil of choice. Also, shade the corners of your lips and blend with either a finer or a lip brush.

Now go in with the Nude Lipstick, begin with the middle of your lips and outwards. Now blend out the lines and lipstick color into a natural finish.
