I've been seeing several requests through my social media channels for recommendations on nude lipsticks - being the lipstick hoarder that I am, I was so excited to make this video. Even more so, I know what a struggle it is to find the perfect nude lip, especially for darker skin tones - not too chalky, not too dull, but just right. For years, I wore MAC Lipstick in Angel with a NARS Lipgloss in Turkish Delight. Why? Because I saw that Kim Kardashian wore it & she was the closest person to my skin tone on TV to get beauty advice from. Note to self: I am NOT the same skin color as any Kardashian, and the nude colors that work for them look quite ridiculous on me (slash wash me out to the extreme).
Proof is in the pictures - see below for some MAJOR college throwbacks. The funniest part is that I genuinely thought I was SO trendy back then LOL #makeupfails
For my followers who aren't as tan as I am, I hope you learn more about the range of different lipsticks there are out there of all different finishes and pigmentation levels that can be worn for daily purposes or more for a night out. See below (ordered least intense to most from left to right):
I love ALL of these nudes depending on the look I'm going for - watch below to learn why! Hope it helps you guys avoid my painful throwback frosty lip mistakes :)
