Nude(ish) Lip Colors That Look Great on a Variety of Brown Skin Tones

Because beauties of color STILL have a hard time finding neutral shades that flatter.

Although I have a deep love for vibrant lip colors, sometimes I like to dive into softer shades. The biggest challenge for me has been finding nude-ish or soft pink lip colors that complement my skin tone.

Sadly, it seems that the beauty industry’s idea of what qualifies as nude does not cater to people of color. I know I’m not alone in this struggle as a brown beauty to find those pretty neutral lip colors, so I asked a few friends to share with me their favorite nude-ish lip colors so I could spread the love with you lovelies.

Brittani's Picks

Brittani didn't have pictures in all of her favorites but she also cited MAC Lipstick in Cream in Your Coffee, Touch, Taupe, and Double Shot. She also really likes NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam with a brown lip liner.

I tried to include a few different skin tones and options, but I would love to hear more favorites from all you, too.
