How to Pick the Best Red Lipstick for Your Skin Tone
Then, the '90s nude lip trend came back. Scrolling through Instagram all I see are Kylie-inspired nude lips , and I refuse to miss out on this beauty moment. I wanted to discover my own nude blackgirlmagic. So after some research, I called in over 25 different neutral lip shades, hoping to discover my perfect match. Believe me, there were a lot of Tyrone Biggum moments during the trials, where my lips looked a lot like gray death—but eventually I found six winners that I'd wear again.
Understand that darker skin tones come in many different variants, and these particular shades might not work for you. That's why I've also included tips from a few makeup experts so you have the formula for finding YOUR perfect nude.
My 10 Favorite Nude Lipsticks for Dark Skin Tones
First, check out all the colors I tested. Then, get more information on each one below. This lipstick has an orange undertone that looks surprisingly neutral on my lips. It's the same concept as using orange concealer to cover up your dark circles. So, this orange-tinted lip cancels out any darkness or discoloration on my mouth, and picks up on my yellow undertones.
I wore this lipstick for date night with my boyfriend, and he said nothing. Typically when I wear any type of lipstick, I get that wary, "What is that, and will it get on my lips? This time he went straight in for the kiss. If you're looking for a nude that completely disappears, this is your pick.
It's warm enough to blend in with brown skin without looking pasty. This brown was a favorite because it had a glossy finish that still gave enough coverage. I pumped up the color even more by using a brown liner underneath. OK, so one issue with finding the perfect nude starts with the color of my natural lips.
How can you find something that blends when both my lips are two separate colors in the first place? My bottom lip is a fleshy pink, while the top is a solid brown. The key is to even out the tone with concealer first. You don't want to completely wipe out your natural lip color, but the concealer can help make the lips look more even. It will also help the color last longer. This lip is my JAM!
Seriously, I will wear it again and again. It's exactly what I was looking for in a nude color. It matches my skin color so well that it makes my lip line vanish. In order to give my lips definition, I apply a brown lip liner first. Working women can easily pick this shade without a doubt. Can be easily used for office wear or with smokey eyes.
