5 different shades of lipstick for perfect nude lips.

Perfecting the understated yet uber-cool nude lips is more complicated than it looks. It’s the lipstick equivalent of finding the right hair product for that just-got-out-of-bed look. Of course nobody rolls out of bed with hair that waves perfectly like a surfer girl cum cherub owns it from the heavens. Immediately unfollow anyone who hashtags an Instagram post with #iwokeuplikethis with that hair. Nope. That girl cannot be trusted.

Going back to nude lips, no one nude lipstick can universally achieve that perfect lip look for every girl. The same tube of nude lipstick that makes you look like J. Lo can make me look like I mistakenly grabbed a stick of chalk to use as a lipstick, and vice versa. The trick is in finding out the best nude lipstick for your skin tone. Yep, nude isn’t just nude. There are multiple shades of awesome for your skin tone to choose from and you can look no further than within Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick collection. Aside from giving your lips that dewy nude finish, Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick conditions, softens, nourishes, hydrates and promotes healthy and supple lips by combining organic ingredients like avocado oils, antioxidant-rich vitamins and coffee seed extract.

  1. Alabaster

If your skin is super fair to a milky degree, you are at a very high risk of looking like a corpse when wearing nude lipstick. This will happen if you choose the basic beige. Go for nude with a hint of pink.

Pick up Jane Iredale’s Madison and let her do the trick.


  1. Fair

About a couple melanin pigments more than alabaster is fair skin. You can also stand to crank up the pink of your nude to a rosy tint. Forget about having your lips match the color of your face. Even Kim Kardashian can’t pull that off.

Try Sharon from the PureMoist collection for that rosy nude.

  1. Medium

Your warm, medium skin tone is perfect for that overall bronze babe look. Pick a nude that’s somewhere between beige and caramel. Too beige will make you look just plain pale and too caramel will make you look like you came back from the brown lipstick movement of the early 90’s.

Go grab a tube of Sarah and shimmer away.

  1. Mocha

The darker your skin, the more definition you’d need when going nude. Just picking out a regular nude lipstick usually doesn’t work because most nudes would be way lighter than your overall skin tone. This may mean layering up. Try a light mauve base like Brooke then finish up with a sheer stroke of Lily.

Try the Brooke from the PureMoist collection.

Try the Lily from the PureMoist collection for the finish up.

  1. Dark

For dark skin, it’s all about highlights and shadows to create that much needed definition. A nude base, close to your natural lip color, needs to finish up with a high shine. Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss is perfect for the job.

Try the shade of Iced Mocha of Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss for defined nude lips that shine through.
