At Styl Inc, our expert stylists have curated a list of the best latest nude lipsticks for dusky skin ideal for every event.
How To Find The Perfect Nude Lipstick?
Wait, wait, wait! Before we get to see the best nude lipsticks for dusky skin, let us at least know how to find the perfect nude colour for you. The perfect shade of nude differs for every skin tint tone. It depends on the complexion of your skin and the undertones that you have. Additionally, the lighting also matters a lot. It is possible that a colour that looks perfect on you in natural light can wash you out in fluorescent light. So, always be mindful of the setting.
Now, for dusky skin, we need to focus on nude lipsticks that offer a subtle but striking contrast to your skin. What does this mean? It means that the shade has to be different enough to not blend into your skin but not so different that it takes all the attention. A lipstick that is too light will make your skin look chalky and grey. However, one that is too close to your natural skin will just blend in with the rest of your face. This is why we suggest opting for colours that have rich undertones of red and brown. Pinky nudes are a big no-no! You will end up looking like a ghost. Trust us. The best is to just highlight your already warm undertones with more warmth. That is where browns and reds come in. Now that you know which undertones to look out for, let us see what some of the best nude lipsticks for dusky skin are.
Styl Tip: If you have accidentally bought a nude lipstick that is too pink or too cool for your undertone, just use a brown lip liner with it to warm up the colour of your skin.
