A Noob’s Guide
on Finding the Right
By Tynne De Leon
Nude lipsticks are becoming quite a hit in the make-up scene. Lots of celebrities are rocking them, and make-up gurus are raving about them.
Whether you’re still looking for the perfect nude for you or you’re currently exploring new shades, we’re here to help!
8. Find a texture that you’re comfortable with
Choose a lipstick texture that reflects your personal style and preference. If you want a long-lasting lippie, mattes are for you. Cream lipsticks, on the other hand, moisturize your lips and provide more shine, although they can bleed over lip lines. You can also go for glossy, to add glam to your look.
7. Know your undertones
There are three categories of skin undertones: warm, neutral and cool. This can also be a good basis if you’re indecisive on which nude shade to wear. Not sure how to check yours? Here’s a guide for you.
6. Your natural lip color matters
While we often base our shade choices to match our skin tone, people sometimes overlook that their natural lip color also matters. Remember: the closer the shade to your natural lip color, the better.
5. Light nudes for the light-skinned
Fair-skinned pinays can rock flesh-toned or baby pink nudes—shades that give emphasis on both lips and bright face.
