Nearly Naked: Nude Lipsticks for Every Skin Tone


Summer's going to officially be here in less than 20 days, and no beauty look is better for the season than one that's natural-looking and polished. One way to keep your face fresh and spritely is to pull your look together with the perfect nude lippie. But before you go shopping, you've got to be sure you're looking for the right shade. Here are some tips on how to find the perfect hue for your skin tone.

If you've got fair skin:

Look for sheer shades with a bit of pink in them–the rosy hue will brighten up your complexion, especially if you are particularly pale. If your skin is a little deeper or golden, warm beiges will also work. But if you've got Christina Hendricks' coloring, steer clear of beige and stick with pinks.

If you've got olive skin:

Congratulations, you win the nude lipstick game. You can choose from either peachy, golden, beige or honey-colored options.

If you've got medium skin:

If your undertones are a bit deeper, try a mocha shade with golden or rosy undertones. It will really give your lips some definition, and a dab of gloss is the perfect finish for your look.

If you've got deep skin:

Find a shade that is slightly lighter than your skin tone with a glossy finish. Bronzes and golden browns are your BFF here. If your skin is a bit lighter brown, you can go with a bit more of a caramel tint with a hint of rosiness.
