Best Pink Nude Lipstick Tip #1
When you pick a lipstick you think is your kind of pink nude shade, always match that lipstick to the natural of colour your lips
Use your natural lip colour as a reference guide instead of your skin colour.
Because you are after a shade for you lips, not your face.
Grab a mirror and look at your face without any makeup on.
Note down the tones of your natural lips. What shades are they close to? Is it pale pink, rosy pink, caramel or dark brown?
Knowing which shade your natural lips are close to will help you narrow down the pink lipstick.
Bonus Lipstick Tip!
Don’t worry if your shade is too brown or too pink.
Once you wear the shade on your lips it will look different.
Best Pink Nude Lipstick Tip #2
Match your pink nude lipstick intensity to your gums.
The colour of your gums will guide you to the best natural looking lipstick shade for your lips.
If you are not sure, apply your lipstick and have a look at your gums.
Now find a mirror and smile!
Do your gums and your lipstick shade compliment each other?
What I want you to look for is if your gums look darker or
If your gum shade is too dark – and when I mean dark it stands out more, you notice your gums look way too pink.
If they are then this means that your lipstick choice is too pale and won’t give you the best natural looking nude lip colour.
If your lipstick is too dark then your gum shade will look really really pale. Which means the shade you chose is too dark.
Bonus Lipstick Shade Tips!
If your lipstick shade is too dark but is the perfect tone just apply your lipstick using your ring finger. If will make the shade less intense giving you the perfect nude shade that suits you.
If your lipstick shade is too pale but you love the tone then use a lipliner or very lightly dab a slightly darker shade of lipstick before using the pale lipstick shade.
Best Pink Nude Lipstick Tip #3
As a general rule just stick to medium lipstick shades because they will compliment your face.
And when I say medium lipstick shade – a lipstick shade that isn’t too pale or too dark based on your skin colour not anyone elses.
Because what a medium colour is on someone else may not be a medium colour on you.
And here’s one final bonus lipstick tip for you…
Bonus Lipstick Shade Tip:
Pick yourself a creamy lipstick formula and avoid anything that has a shimmer or the name ‘frosty’ in it’s shade name or shade description.
A creamy lipstick will keep your lips hydrated making your lips flushed with natural colour.
Your perfect creamy nude pink lipstick will be semi matte and not glossy or shimmery.
