Nude lipstick is the perfect way to finish off any redhead makeup look and it’s a safe bet no matter what you are wearing. For redheads, choosing the right nude shade is super important because choosing the wrong color can leave you looking washed out. Here are a few tips on how to pick the perfect nude lipstick to complement your redhead complexion.
1. Go for warm undertones
A beige or cool-toned nude lipstick is going to make your lips look dead and lifeless. Pull your natural flush with a color that has warm undertones. Pink undertones look especially nice on redheads as they imitate the natural pink of your lips and help you have a more natural-looking lip.
2. Consider your natural lip color
If you’re fair-skinned, you might be drawn towards very light nude lipsticks, but they might not always work for you. Take into account your natural lip color, and pick something that is around that same shade for a more natural look.
3. Use a lip liner
Using lip liner to help create dimension and a color gradient is a great way to get a nude lip that complements your redhead skin tone. Make sure your lip liner is in the same color family as your lipstick and don’t stray more than 1-2 shades away from your main lip color for a cohesive look.
4. Skip the matte
Matte lipstick is great, but it can leave your lips looking chalky and dull which makes them look like they blend in with your skin. Opt for something with a little more depth like a satin finish to help your lips look more alive.
5. Try a gloss
A nude gloss is a great way to give your lips a subtle tint with added shine.
