Following my perfect shade of nude lacquers for chocolate skin, I wanted to also share a few great nude lip colours for chocolatey skin (for the same reasons). I’m someone who for the past 3 years has worn the same nude lip because 1. it was perfect for me, and 2. because I have major trust issues about how nude lip colours are advertised (in terms of accommodating darker skin tones). I know you’re probably thinking “you could have swatched colours in store” but I find that makeup stores have lighting that makes colours look slightly different to how they do in natural light. But nevertheless, I took a chance and bought a few that I can’t wait to share with you all.
The trick to bringing out the best in these nude colours is to use a warm brown/dark brown lip liner before you apply the colour. My favourite lip liner is Mac’s Chestnut liner but I sometimes use Rimmel’s black/brown eyebrow pencil to give my lips some extra depth (so I don’t get that ice ring donut lip look). *Disclaimer* it is not imperative to only use Mac lip products, I personally find this brand gives my lips the best amount of pigment to compliment the tones in my skin. Other brands work well for other areas and functions. These nude lip colours all bring out and compliment the warm undertones in chocolate skin when worn with a good liner:
