The Spring/Summer runways were awash with two ends of the makeup spectrum. One side we had brights in all shapes and finishes painted onto the eyes, cheeks and lips; and on the other end we saw a refreshing take on minimalist makeup—the no makeup makeup look gone sophisticated.
A staple to the muted face is the nude lip. Not to be confused with a natural lip (wearing a color that matches your actual lipcolor), the key to finding the perfect nude shade for you is picking a hue that complements your skin color rather than just matching it.
Warm skin tones should look for nudes with hints of gold or coral while cooler complexions can gravitate towards tubes that have a tinge of pink.
Remember to also keep in mind how light or dark you are to avoid looking washed out–think cappuccino for the fair and mocha for the morenas.
We list five of our favorite nude lippies out in the market today to help start your nude awakening.
