They say every girl has to own a little black dress because of its timeless style and universally flattering appeal.
In terms of makeup, it can be said that its counterparts are red and nude lipsticks since both shades are classic; they can suit women of different ages and skin tones and may be worn on different occasions.
Although both shades could look good in any woman, one important factor that needs to be considered when shopping for these shades is your skin tone. What may look like the right match on others may not look as perfect on you.
Wearing a nude shade of lipstick is particularly tricky, because you may be putting yourself up for a beauty faux pas if you don’t get the right shade.
Test out different shades of nude lipstick before making your purchase. Be careful about getting a shade that’s too light or opaque it makes you look pale and dull, or picking one that’s too dark it gives your lip a dark brown finish that borders on goth.
Here’s a little tip to kick off your search for the best nude lipstick for you: don’t look for the perfect match; go for the right one instead. Pick a shade that’s one shade lighter or darker than your complexion.
As a basic guide, here are the best shades of nude lipstick that suit each type of skin tone from Ever Bilena’s Matte Lipstick Nude Collection:
- If you have a fair complexion, go for a nude lipstick with tinges of soft baby pink or rosy beige. Try the Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mirrored Mocha, which is a fabulous mix of nude and red. It will give your lips the ample amount of color to subtly brighten up your face.
- If you have a medium complexion, nude lipsticks with golden beige, peachy nudes, or caramel tones work best. The Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Skin is your best bet. Its gorgeous skin tone shade would complement smoky eyes fabulously.
- If you have a dark complexion, pick darker versions of nude like bronzy browns with hints of shimmer or dusty rose and toffee shades. Try the Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Port as its dull red color flatters your skin tone.
The Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick Nude Collection (P165 each) boasts of rich color pay-off and has a stunning matte finish. These lipsticks may be matte but with their vitamin E content, they won’t dry up your lips.
