Finding the perfect nude lipstick for wheatish skin is harder than it sounds. Too dark and it looks like you’re trying to carry off brown (in a not very cool ’90s way). Too light and you look like the walking dead. But fret not, we’re going to help you avoid any nude lippie faux pas.

Read on to know about the best nude lipsticks for wheatish or medium skin:

    Medium Skin With Yellow Undertones

    Actually, nude lipsticks compliment medium skin tones beautifully. Golden-beige (almost caramel) shades look lovely on olive skins with yellow undertones. Look for hues that are a shade darker than your skin and contrast well, rather than merge with your skin color. You could pick a glossy formula that warms up your skin like, Colorbar Nude It Lip Color – Drape.

  • Medium Skin With Pink Undertones

    If you have a medium skin tone with pink undertones, you have many more options when it comes to nude lipsticks for medium skin. Opt for a darker nude like Colorbar Nude It Lip Color – Expose or a matte pink tinted color like Bella Voste Ulti-Matte Nude Lipstick - 02 Rose Lust. Meanwhile, if you have a golden tanned complexion, try Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip - Petal Metal to accentuate your sun-kissed glow. The trick is to find a nude lipstick that adds a separation between your lips and skin. When in doubt just stick to a pink-toned rich and cream nude hue that’s lighter than your skin like NYX Professional Makeup Simply Nude Lip Cream – Exposed.

    Long Lasting Nude Lipstick

    If you want to ensure long-lasting wear, check out NYX Professional Makeup Retractable Lip Liner - Sand Beige + Makeup Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick – Bustier. Start by tracing your lip shape with the lip liner and then full in with the liquid lipstick. The creamy texture will make your lips look and feel ultra-soft. We especially love this liquid formula because it’s almost weightless with a lush, matte finish. 

  • Camouflaging Darker Lip Outlines

    Occasionally, the outer edges of the lips tend to be a bit darker on medium skin tones. If you have a similar issue choose a shade that matches the color of the perimeter of your mouth, so that the lipstick doesn’t appear chalky around the rim. Pick a salmon pink nude with hints of orange to camouflage the outer edges of your lips and unify your lip color. We recommend SUGAR It's A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick - 09 Better Call Salmon (Peach Pink), a lovely creamy hue that settles to a matte finish.
