Strip down your style with the newest naked lip looks. Perfect to pair with high-impact eyes or cheeks, yet fresh-faced and flirty on their own, nude lips are a huge hit on the red carpet and the runway alike. The trick: finding your perfect shade. Yeah, you'd think that a natural-looking lip would be easy to pull off, but if you don't pick the right shade for your skin tone, the world will know it. Choose a hue that flatters your caramel complexion, apply it like a pro and get ready for awesomely au naturel style.
Super-size your pucker sans needles with a lip pencil that matches your naked pout. A shade with golden tones usually looks the most natural on caramel skin. Fill in your lip line with the pencil, starting at the outer corners and working inward to the center to add subtle fullness.
Choose a nude lipstick that's about two shades darker than your natural lip color. Flatter your caramel complexion with a taupe-based hue that has subtle pink or mauve tones. It will look lush and creamy on your golden-brown skin, and the pink will add a sexy, subtle rosiness to your pout. Forget the sheer glosses -- you've got enough pigment in your skin to pull off a rich, opaque nude formula.
Swipe on your nude lipstick straight from the tube for an effortlessly modern effect. Lip brushes are too precise for the fresh, fuss-free nude lip look.
Press a dab of clear gloss onto the center of your bottom lip to add a shot of shine to the look.
Nude lipstick goes well with just about any makeup vibe you're diggin'. Lightly sweep a golden-based bronzer all over your face for a sexy natural glow, or go for the glam and pair that nude pucker with dramatic black eyeliner.
