I have been doing some reading and research over the months since I started blogging and here is what I learned and experienced. Usually the first thing that runs through most of our minds when we think about how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick is that it should match our skin color. If you’ve been thinking that all of these years I’m here to tell you unless you’ve got a cold and your lips actually match your skin, you’re wrong. It can be hard at first but with a few tips I’ll show you how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick for every shade of skin.

The 1st Rule of thumb is as follows. Keep on reading :-

2. HOW TO DETERMINE WHAT UNDERTONE YOU HAVE

Check under your wrist and if you have a green color veins, you’ve warm undertone and blue veins means you have cool undertone.

3.  Choosing Your Lip Color With The Right Undertones. Here are some points you might want to know when choosing your lip color :

Fair Skin with Pink (Cool) Undertones: Your cool undertones mean you’ll want to pick a lipstick with hints of blue, and steer clear of anything orangey

Fair Skin with Yellow (Warm) Undertones: Choose something with a tinge of orange, which will complement your skin tone and make your eyes pop. As a general rule, you’ll want to stay away from pinks — they’ll wash you out.

Medium Skin and Tan Skin: Lucky you! Your complexion goes with almost everything! Not only can you indulge in so-called “true reds” — which are the perfect combination of pink and orange — but your choices also run the gamut from pink, orange, cranberry and even deep oxblood or brown tones.

Olive Skin: Olive complexions can be surprisingly finicky. Your complexion has yellow undertones, but lipsticks with too much of an orange base can look off. Pick reds with a slight hint of blue in them, like a berry hue; and if you feel the combination isn’t working for you, go for a sheer or glossy version.

Dark Skin: Both blue-based reds and orangey reds look excellent with your complexion. You’ll enjoy brighter reds, a range of coral tones, true reds and deeply saturated berry tones.

Thanks for taking the time to read and hope to see you on the next one! If you have any questions or would like me to do a more in-depth post on any of these products, please  let me know – you can leave a comment below, on my Facebook page or email me.

  1. Even though I’m cool-toned, my copper red hair gives me more latitude to wear warm-toned lipstick and eye shades, but your rules of thumb are definitely a great way to go.. Love your cute cartoons!

  2. Great tips Sharon! When I first started looking for “the perfect nude” I thought it should match your skin – but I learned it’s much better to match your lip tone for the most natural look!

  3. Oh my gosh, THANK YOU! I have been learning most of what looks “good” on me from trial and error, but now I feel like I have a better understanding of why. And I am pretty sure I just spent about 10 minutes debating with myself as to whether or not my veins were green, blue, or greenish-blue🙂

  4. Thanks for the tips. I’ve always wondered which colors work best on me! I don’t trust my own eyes to decide, haha. This was a quick and easy guide! I’m pretty sure I have warm undertones with fair to medium skin.
