    Question Choosing a flattering lipstick color

    I love nude color lipsticks because they give the appearance of style and glamour without looking made up. But my problem is that i have darker skin...tan if you will. I am not sure how to use nude colors with my skin tone???
    If i just use nude lipstick, my face looks colorless. As a result, i end up using shades of red and burgundy all the time.

    I like the soft dewey fresh look that nudes give.
    Can someone please suggest how i can do that and what would be the best way to pick a flattering color, without having to use dark tones all the time.

    I am more of a lip gloss fan than lipsticks I have fuller lips and I think that color makes them look even bigger so I go with a neutral gloss I love Chanel glosses

    The nude lipsticks are my fave but I want to know what kind of nude lipstick that you use I mean there's a light nude color, dark and beige to pink!
    Do you try all of these shades?

    IDK but I think the dark beige or beige to pink will fit you!

    My skin tone is medium so I can't help you but I just wanna show you some colors maybe that will help somehow

    Look at this lipstick it's Brave from MAC and the color is Pink-beige.. Lovely

    IMHO :

    SEPHORA Maniac Liner - #11 Chair Obsession (I use it also as a base for other lipsticks)
    L'OREAL Color Riche Made For Me Naturals Lipstick - Nude blush
    RIMMEL Volume Lipstick - #102 Foxy
    MAYBELLINE Color Sensational - #715 Choco Cream
    REVLON Matte Lipstick - Nude blush
    But I'm always looking for new brands...

    Lip-stick is very hard to shop for. You have to take skin tone, hair and eye color into consideration. I recommend stopping in sephora and finding the right shade for you.

    I have the exact same problem but opposite cause I'm so pale most nudes wash me out. I would definitely go to a MAC counter or something & try out a couple ones & ask the SA to help. She found this orange/nude-ish color that gave me the nude lips :) Gluck!
