Best Nude Lipstick Shades For Darker Skin Tones

Securing the perfect nude for a dark-skinned woman is tricky, especially when you don’t want to look washed out or ashy. It’s all about finding the perfect tint that compliments your undertone. Some women with darker complexions usually fall under the red and yellow undertone category. At first, I wasn’t sure where to start but after so many test runs, I’m more confident choosing nude lip shades than ever. Along the way, I learned that using a lip liner is helpful in most cases.

Below are the best nude lipsticks and lip combo ideas.

Lip Guide:

Juvia’s Place

Your 3-in-1 lip duo. I love a combination like this where there is a clear lip gloss added! You will find this lipstick shade closer to some dark-skinned women’s complexion.

Although this shade is different, it has a peachy tone with a hint of brown.

MAC Cosmetics

This lip liner goes great with this blush color lipstick because of its mid-tone pinkish-brown hue. It tones down the color by eliminating the semi-pale touch.
