Tips on Finding Perfect Nude Lipstick
Getting that perfect nude lipstick isn’t as easy as one would think. Using nude lipsticks that are too dark would make you look like you are working hard on making brown color lipstick happen, which in the ’90s way isn’t cool.
A lighter version of the nude lipsticks would make one start resembling the living dead.
First off knowing your skin tone is very important before trying to get yourself a nude type of lipstick.
Types of Skin Tones
Alabaster; this is a milky and fair skin tone. People with these type of skin tones should attempt on using a soft, dusty baby pink. Going for a beige nude lipstick would make one look horrible.
They should avoid the super opaque and flat nudes and use sheerer formula instead.
Fair Skin; Look for a rosy-beige nude lipstick. The skin and the nude lipsticks should often match, like in the fashion magazines. A separation and warmth between lips and skin would be appropriate in real life though.
Light Skin Tone; Warmer nude shade is preferable to ladies with light-skinned and marginally olive undertones.
The Dolce Vita brand is classic since it works miracles for most women. The lipsticks are always looking appropriate and easy to wear.
Once one starts using the product, it’s not easy to go without it, since the product gets adapted to a variety of eye shadows and blushes.
Nars Dolce Vita Lipstick is the cashmere hoodie of the world of lipstick and every lady should get herself a cashmere hoodie.
