You would think that finding the top nude lipsticks the suit your skin color would be a piece of cake. All you have to do is match it to your skin tone and voila, you’re good to go. But alas, that is not the case. If you go too pale, you’ll end up looking ghostly and if you go too dark…well what’s the point then? All we know is it’s not a one size fits all kinda thing, ugh.
Two makeup items that instantly transform your face, a good lippy and nice brows. We did the research and found the top selling nude shades and brands that suit different skin tones. As a fellow woman of color, I’ve always had a hard time finding a nude lip that was light and airy on my skin. It takes testing, testing, testing to find the best options. But to make it easier, we narrowed it down. So make a list, head to your nearest Sephora and start swatching to find the perfect fit, for you!!
