The Nude Lipstick Edit.

*This post contains PR Samples

Nude is a colour I am always automatically drawn to. Be it nude clothes, nail polish, home accessories or lipsticks. However, there are so many shades of nude and sometimes it can be quite tricky to find the right undertone for your complexion, especially when it comes to lipstick. So today I want to share with you a little guide to find the perfect nude lipstick for yourself and also introduce you to some of my personal faves.


If you are pale and cool-toned like me, you should probably go for a shade with a pink undertone. Girls with a more olive tone to their skin should definitely avoid lipsticks that are lighter than their skin, that will make you look washed out. Medium skin tones can pull off kind of everything but look best with a hint of peach. Girls with very dark skin tones will look the freshest with darker chocolatey nudes without a peachy or pinky undertone. If you go by those rules you won't look like you are staring in 'the walking dead'.

After you decided on the colour scheme, you should think about which finish you want. The easiest to pull off would be a glossy finish. It looks good in every shade and makes you look fresh. Another pro is that your lips don't have to be in the best state. For a matte nude lip, you definitely need to give your lips a good scrub before applying. Nude matte lipsticks tend to highlight the uneven bits of your lips even more. But I personally love the look of a matte nude lip, even when it's more work.

With those things in mind, you should be able to rock a nude lip without any effort. 


When it comes to a matte liquid lip I absolutely adore the Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Matte Stains in 7, which is more of a true nude and 11, which is quite pink, and number 23, a beautiful deeper nude. My go-to liquid lipstick, however, is the bareMinerals liquid lipstick in 'swag'. Again a very cool-toned pinky nude. I also adore the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips in 'Dolly Bird'. 

Tom Ford lipsticks have the best lipstick formula in my opinion. My go-to shades in the nude spectrum are 'Pink Dusk', 'All Mine', 'Spanish Pink', 'Bad Lieutenant', 'Spiced Honey' and 'Blush Nude'. If I want something lighter and more on the glossy side I love Armani Rouge d'Armani in 103, Chanel Rouge Coco in '402 Adrienne', Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color in '14 Pale Petal' and YSL Rouge Volupte Shine  in 47. For a lip care product with a hint of colour, I love to use the Clarins Natural Lip Perfector in 01.

What are your fave nude lipsticks?

  3. Nowadays I only wear nude lipstick, it's just so easy and goes with everything. I love shades like the Spiced Honey Tom Ford lipstick! My favourite is Fast Play by MAC - a pink shade that goes with lighter but also darker skintones like mine!

  4. So many fab shades. I love nudes too. In fact, it's either I wear nothing or nude. My favorite is Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk, but recently I have also liked KKW Beauty nudes too!

  8. Browns and berries are my favorite shades of lipstick. I have these L'Oreal lipsticks that I adore. Most of their lipsticks have a creamy finish. My everyday lipstick is a nude lipstick. It's a pretty shade of brown. I've yet to try any YSL lipsticks, but I do love Tom Ford and own a few of his lipsticks. x
