The Nude Lipsticks That Will Give You Perfectly Kissable Lips

Not everyone is a bold lipstick person. After all, it takes a lot of confidence to pull off a red lip or a vibrant shade of blue. Most of us like to stay in our comfort zone with a trusty nude lipstick and matching liner. With natural makeup being one of the biggest trends within the beauty industry, it’s no surprise that more of us are choosing to go back to the fuss-free nude lipsticks.

During the mid-to-late 2000s, nude lipstick was everywhere. We loved for its subtle look and easy application. If you overline too much, it wasn’t the end of the world. If you overline with red lipstick, it can be disastrous.

What we love about a nude lipstick is that it can give you the illusion of plumper lips, while being easy to apply and you don’t have to worry about it smudging.

Nude is one of the few lipstick shades that is truly universal. Some of the best selling lipsticks of all time are nude shades, loved by makeup wearers of all complexions. Just think of the popularity of Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Pillow Talk’ lipstick, which has inspired a full makeup range in its honour. If the pinkish undertones don’t work for you, there’s always MAC Cosmetics’ Velvet Teddy shade.

We promise this isn’t a sales pitch for every single nude lipstick out there – though we are going to sing the praises and benefits of having a good nude shade in your makeup bag. We’re rounding up everything you need to know about applying nude lipstick and the most popular nude lipstick shades that every woman needs to own.

What is nude lipstick?


As you’ll probably guess, nude lipstick is a ‘your lips but better’ colour that is designed to blend with your natural lip shade to make it look as though you’re not wearing any lipstick. It can help enhance the appearance of your lips, while complementing your skin tone. Like any makeup product, there’s a fine line between finding the perfect nude lipstick and one that leaves you looking washed out and unwell.

How do I choose the right nude lipstick for me?


The secret to choosing the best nude lipstick for you is to think about your skin tone. If you have a darker skin tone, you want to look at nude shades that have warm or caramel undertones. Stay firmly away from any with a pastel undertone as they will wash you out. If you have oily skin, look for rosy undertones or a mid-level pink. If you have paler skin, look for a nude shade that has hint of brown with a mauve or pink twist. You’ll be able to get away with wearer a lighter pink colour as a nude lipstick.

The other thing you want to consider is having a lipstick that works with your natural lip colour, adding another dimension to the appear of your lips. Using a lip liner is an easy way to get the most out of your perfect nude lipstick. You can choose one that is in the exact same hue (most brands sell a matching lip liner for their lipsticks) or one that is a few shades on either side of the lipstick.

Using a lip liner will help add depth and dimension to your lips, leaving them perfectly kissable. Another trick worth knowing is how to use a lip brush to apply your lipstick as if helps you from overapplying too much lipstick.

The number one mistake people make when they’re shopping for a new nude lipstick is that they test it on the back of their hand, which usually gets more sun than your face, making it darker. You want to instead compare the bullet of the lipstick directly to your lips if possible.

What is the most popular lipstick shade?


Nude lipstick is one of the few shades that work for every occasion, complementing any outfit you wear – whether it’s casual or formal. What we love about nude lipsticks is that they’re low-maintenance and fuss-free, meaning you don’t need to worry about reapplying them constantly. If the lipstick starts to wear away, it leaves a less obvious trace behind on your lips.

Nude lipstick is also an easy way to give the illusion of plumper lips – even making it look as though you’ve invested in filler. The trick to getting plumper lips with a nude lipstick is to use a warm brown lip liner and gently feather it along the line of your lips, leaving the centre bare for your lipstick.
