TV, magazines, billboards, Kylie Jenner…Yes, we get the gist
The 90’s “nude” lip trend is back big time and these days nude lips are literally everywhere!
So why miss out on this beauty moment? Because, finding a good nude lipstick as a woman with brown skin can be pretty complicated.
Worry not darlings! We have narrowed down some beautiful nude lippies that work well with warmer skin tones. Try these shades and forget looking like you just ate powdered donuts!
#1. Mac Lipstick in Kinda Sexy
This shade is one of my absolute favourites. Don’t be fooled by the matte formula of the lipstick; it actually has a nice sheen to it and does not appear flat. The pinkish shade is very comfortable to wear, does not dry your lips and is great for warmer skin tones. The creamy texture of the lipstick glides on effortlessly and allows you to build up colour that lasts throughout the day!
#2. Bourjois Sweet Kiss Naturel Lipstick in Rose Tendre
If you are on the lookout for a warm pinkish coral shade that doesn’t look too dark or too light – run and grab this one. The lipstick has an intensely nourishing formula that leaves your lips supple and soft. The balance of colours is refreshing with just the right amount of peach and rose hue. The finish is creamy, semi-matte. You can swipe it across your lips more than once if you want a darker colour pay-off; personally one swipe does it for me. And the best part – it stays on.
#3. Maybelline Colour Sensational Lip Colour in Totally Toffee
Totally Toffee is a nude brown lippie with just a hint of pink. For those of you who want more of a brown rather than a pink tone, this is your match. The creamy texture and decent pigmentation make it a great makeup essential for everyday use. A bit on the glossy side, it does not feel heavy on the lips and has a good moisturizing quality to it. It’s a total no brainer girls – this shade gives your lips just the right amount of oomph and plump they need. Oh, and the fragrance is an additional plus!
#4. Colour Pop Ultra Satin Liquid Lippie in Echo Park
Yet another warm peachy nude, but oh-so-perfect for light to medium skin tones with warm undertones. On initial application, the finish is satin – but as time passes the matte starts to kick in. For an instant matte look, you can blot it with paper. The mousse-y texture is easily applicable and very soft. It is advisable to exfoliate your lips for that flawless finish. The ultra satin formula prevents your lips from drying out and adds to the smooth application.
#5. Revlon Super Lustrous in Caramel Glace
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! If you are serious about pulling off the 90s/early 00s look, you have just got to try this amazing frosty shade of brown! If applied lightly, it doesn’t appear metallic – however, heavier application gives it a bit of a frost (but not the kind to shy away from). A good day-to-day colour for a neutral lip and the combination of a warm brown with shimmer means it can work well for many skin tones. Put it on your list now!
