***Nude lips for dark skin***


One of my fellow readers asked me how she could get a nude lip if she has a dark complexion. The key to having a nude lip (like the beautiful lips of Gabrielle Union on this pic) is all in your choice of color. Stay as close as you can to dark beige and brown. Avoid lipglasses with too much shimmer unless you are looking for a nude night look (in which case, the eternal “Oh Baby” lipglass is the best!)

My picks will be (all MAC):

  • Chestnut lipliner
  • Chai lipglass
  • Bare Truth lipglass
  • Revealing lipglass
  • Spite lipglass

I am not a big fan of lipstick but if you are, you may wanna try Spirit, Paramount or Chelsea.

Also, if you find Chestnut lipliner too light for you, try Costa Riche eyeliner (yes it’s an eyeliner but it’s not too dark to be used on the lips if you find chestnut too light…)

I hope this helps Patrina…
