Hey Guys,

Happy New Year! 🎉

I hope you have all had a great start to the new year and are looking forward to a bigger and better 2018. 

We all have different definitions of “nude” and this can make it especially trickier for women of colour to navigate in the beauty realm. 
I feel like every girl deserves at least 1 nude lip colour that compliments her complexion and it shouldn’t ever be difficult to find that perfect shade. 

 So, I have provided a run down of my favorite nude lipsticks, lipglosses and liquid lipsticks that I have been rocking for years and have my stamp of approval. 

 These nudes are especially perfect for all my brown-beauties and will also leave your lips looking plump and hydrated (a huge bonus)! 
 All these nude lips can be worn comfortably on their own. But for a more natural and seamless transition, simply pair with your fave brown lip-liner and you’re ready to go! 

Nude Lipsticks - 1


1. Fashion Fair - Lace

2. MAC - Velvet Teddy

1. I can not stop going back to my local Fashion Fair counter and buying this "Lace" lippy 😍. Ever since I discovered it, it has been one of my go-to lipsticks especially on days when I don't know what other colour wear. It's my second favourite nude colour!
I pair this shade with any reddish-brown lipliner and it finishes the colour off very beautifully. The great thing is that it is also SO hydrating, so will not dry your lips out throughout the day.

2. MAC's Velvet Teddy is also a colour that I first bought several years ago and I love it. Less is more with this colour. I would definitely recommend prepping your lips before and wearing this lipstick with a brown lipliner. You can also finish it off with a thin layer of any of the nude lipglosses below (5 or 6) if you want a tad more hydration.

3. Kat Von D - Lolita

4. NYX - Teddy

3. OH MY GOSH! That's all I can say about this lipstick! This shade is so gorgeous. It is my number one favourite nude colour and I always rant and rave about how much I love it!
When ever it runs out (which is very rare because it lasts a very long while) I always run back to my local Kat Von D counter and top up. This shade is also very versatile and can be worn with and without a brown lip-liner based on your own preference.

4. I bought Teddy when I was on holiday in Barcelona and ending up buying 3 more for my family members. This nude is a very lovely muted brown and looks amazing with and without a lipgloss layered over the top.

5. MAC Lipglass in Spite

6. NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Cinnamon Roll

5. Glosses have made the ultimate come back and I am in love. My favourite thing to do is layer a nude gloss over a nude lip for a high shine and plumper looking lip. MAC have gorgeous lipglosses that are not really ranted about. Spite is one of my several favourite shades that MAC offer.

6. Any brown lipgloss can come my way! I particularly love this one by NYX but many brands have a similar shade that can be duped, so head out and get your brown nude NOW! It's essential to life ladies! (lol)

Don't forget, you can also transform any matte lipstick any of your favourite lip shades (not only nudes) by simply adding a clear lipgloss. 😉

Hope you guys enjoyed that and I’ll be back with my favourite “WOC-friendly” universal lip-liners that go with practically any nude you can imagine!
