The infamous nude is no longer one-size-fits all

The party season is over and it’s time you gave your iconic rouge lipstick a well-deserved rest. Trade in the berry’s for birthday-suit shades perfectly matched to your skin tone.


A pretty pink rosy hue like ‘Shanghai Spice’ from MAC is an ideal match for those with fair skin. Be sure to skip past the milky-tan shades as they can end up looking chalky and drowning out your complexion. Instead, opt for rosy tones with a hint of gloss to add dimension.

Available at MAC Comestics.


Those with pale skin tones best suit a balanced mix of pink and beige to compliment their cooler undertones. Charlotte Tilbury's Hollywood Lips in ‘Charlotte Darling’ is a perfect blend that offers high impact colour with a velvety matte effect.

Warm, sandy neutral shades form a perfect nude for light-to-medium skin tones. This Hourglass femme nude lip stylo in shade No 2 delivers a full coverage, creamy formula with a satin finish. Be sure to avoid shades lighter than your complexion as this can enhance skin imperfections.

Available at Sephora


Medium skin tones look most radiant with caramel shades that compliment their natural, warm undertones. 'Birthday Suit' by Too Faced is a coconut-infused, subtle yet striking nude that will enhance your skin's natural glow.

Available at Sephora


With natural, gold undertones, olive complexions should opt for shades that add extra warmth to the skin. As sandy tones can leave you looking ashy and dull-skinned, try a warm peach or muted coral lip like ‘First Sin’ from Urban Decay.

Available at Sephora.


A coppery-brown based lip is a stunning nude for darker skin tones. Opt for a bold, liquid lip like Tom Ford’s metal lip lacquer in shade ‘Copper Chic.’ The metallic hue will accentuate the shape of your lips whilst offering mirror-like dimension.

Available at Sephora


Rich skin tones pair perfectly with rich shades. Chocolatey-based taupes like ‘I Quit’ by Rihanna's Fenty Beauty is a complexion-flattering nude that leaves a petal-soft, matte finish. 

Available at Sephora
