Picking The Perfect Nude Lip Shade
Nude lipstick looks wrong when the color is too pasty or pale. Yes, it can look corpse-like. That is why your skin tone matters when you pick up a tube of neutral makeup.
A lot of celebrities wear the dark, smoky eye with a nude lip, including Kim Kardashian, Pam Anderson, and Nicole Scherzinger.
Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell has this beauty advice when you DON'T want a bold pout( In Style mag):
1. Easy on the Application
"Nude will cake up if it's applied wrong, so use a light hand." Spread it out with a lip brush.
2. One Step-Up on the Color
"A shade one level darker than your natural lips creates subtle contrast."
3. Rosy Hues = Warmth for Fair Skin
Peachy Beiges = Bring Out Medium Tones
Copper = Sparkles on Darker Complexions
