Trendspotting: Explore the dark nude lipstick
Recently, we have seen a lot of celebrities sporting nude lips that are not quite their natural shade, be it on the runway or just a typical day at work.
Nude shades can make your “no-makeup make up” game strong, but how about we take it to a darker level? Dark lipsticks are usually associated with the vampy, night-time look, but dark nudes have the advantage of also being daytime-appropriate, and even office chic.
Since the shades are nude, there won’t be additional beauty steps to make the lippy suit your look; just the usual foundation and concealer with a hint of blush, while maintaining a fresh look
to the eyes with groomed brows and mascara.
But like any lipstick trend, finding the right shade for you will make the biggest difference.
To get you started on your quest for the perfect dark nude lips, here are our shade suggestions, along with some staff favorites:
1. For fair skin tones, use a shade with a bit more red than brown to add more pop of color to your creamy skin. Adding a touch of the lipstick to your cheek will also give some dimension to your blush.
2. For medium skin tones, there are a lot of choices to choose from. But we recommend a deep brown or berry shade to add richness to your skin. A pop of highlighter on the cheekbone will also work wonders.
3. For deep skin tones, we recommend lipsticks with a dark brown shade and warm undertones, like burnt orange, to add radiance. Don’t forget to add a pop of shimmer to your cupid’s bow for extra emphasis.
