Nude lipstick is super versatile. It can be the perfect partner to a sexy smoky eye or a bold-colored liner, or it can be a toned-down way to look polished. This is certainly a color that flatters darker-skinned women. However, avoid nudes that are lighter than your skin tone.

#3. Red

Sure, we’ve all got a red lippie in our collection and love the sexy vibe they command. We’re talking about the super addictive and trusted red pout. Whether matte or glossy finish, red lips are perfect for brightening up your face and standing out in the crowd.

#4. Pink

Super trendy and stylish, pink is a must-have for any girl’s makeup bag. Opt for lighter shades to really make your pout stand out with noticeable coloring, or choose a darker and more tantalizing hue for a dreamy and desirable look. It just depends on your particular style, but both look great against darker skin tones!

#5. Brown

Brown lipstick gets a bad wrap. It’s quite often overlooked and thrown into the ‘unwearable’ cadre because we can’t seem to understand how it fits into our lives. When it comes to rockin’ a neutral, earthy shade like brown, contrast is the key. Just make sure you’re opting for a deep brown shade instead of a light variation, which can make your lips appear nude and dull.
