For so long when it came time to shop for a nude lipstick shade, makeup lovers with dark skin found it difficult finding one suitable for themselves. Across makeup aisles, the nude options that were available were only fit for people with light skin.
But as the beauty industry continues making strides to be inclusive of all consumers, an increasing number of brands are recognizing that beige isn’t the only nude that exists and creating nude products that cover the diverse spectrum of human skin. After all, nude is supposed to be flesh-toned, so it’s nonsensical to have beige serve as the de facto nude color in cosmetics when beauty lovers with darker complexions exist.
Thankfully, women of color with medium to dark skin tones have more nude lipstick shades to choose from than ever before. Still, finding the right shade that fits you and your undertones and doesn’t make your pout look ashy, ghastly or unflattering can be tricky. So we’ve done the legwork for you.
Ahead are 10 nude lipsticks at all price points that look stunning against a variety of dark skin tones. Click through to see what made the cut.
