Nude lipsticks are essential! Whether you are going to work, to the mall, or a fancy dinner party, a flattering nude lip can make all the difference. While the “nude” is seen on many lipsticks, that can be misleading, especially for women with darker complexions.
As you can see, the lipstick labeled as “nude” did not bring out the beauty in these women. Most nude lipsticks are designed for women with lighter skintones but that doesn’t mean there aren’t nude lip shades for us. Below are just some of the best lippies in the vegan and cruelty-free world for you to enjoy whenever!
My grandma has them. My mom has them. And sadly, I am beginning to get them. However, I am obsessed with treating my dark circles with an eye cream and using healthier options to conceal them. My eyes are my favorite body part so I really want to keep the area looking young and beautiful.
Below are just 5 of the many different dark circle concealers floating about online. Personally, I have used TARTE’s concealer and found it to be one of my favorites. It is both moisturizing and highly-pigmented to hide any flaw.
Peach, coral, and oranges are in the same color family. But while some individuals can wear a peachy color, some look better with a pure orange shade.
Personally, most corals are wore in the summer time for a fresh look but why regret fun colors for the winter time!
If your skintone is within the range of medium to tan:
and has a warm undertoneslike Solange, select corals with yellow undertones to them. The goal is to find corals with warm undertones to match your warm complexion. Zuzu Luxe Lipstick in Siren ($19.10) is a medium shade coral with gold flecks to make you sparkle.
Now onto the dark to deep skin tones (like myself!):
If your skintone is similar to Lupita Nyong’o’s or Gabby Union’s with warm undertones, you are lucky! You can wear a true orange color. Think tangerine! Bold and bright, Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick ($5.99) in Coral Addict is a bright orange with gold flecks. Dont’ shy away from this color!
