What is the best nude lipstick?

Finding the best nude lipstick is not as easy as it might sound as every individual has their own definision of what 'Nude' is. There are a lot of questions to ask yourself and lots of factors to take into consideration which many people dont think about which is why so many people find it so hard finding that perfect nude lip.

First its worth spending a moment to ask yourself, what does nude mean to me?. Does nude reference your skin tone so your lips become muted and fade into your skin tone. Or maybe nude reflects the natural tone in your lips so it makes yout lips look they thay are wearing nothing, so becoming nude. Or perhaps nude is deeper than your lips giving you definition but without standing out. Also you should think about the undertone of your nude. SHould it be pink, biege, or warm? There is a lot to take in. However, to cut through all the noise and to help you simplify the proces in finding the best nude lipstick there are some shades to go straight to to try out first to work out what you like:

  • Starting with deeper and dark skin tones, for a pink undertone try Double Fudge or Whirl, for a biege tone try Kinkster, for a warm tone shades like Derriere & Consensual are beautiful.
  • Moving on to a medium skin tone Creme In Your Coffee has a lovely pink undertone, whereas Act Natural has a gorgeious cool beige tone to it and for something warmer, Velvet Teddy is incredibly iconic.
  • For lighter skin tones Modesty looks beautiful and just like a natural lip colour or theres Myth for that 60's Mod concealer nude look. The best thing is that on the MAC website you have the vertual try on tool that allows you to apply the lipstick via your camera on you phone so you can see instantly if you suits your complexion.
