At Nykaa, we’re all about conquering our beauty fears and pushing boundaries, so here’s a tailor-made guide for the perfect nude makeup to light up your face whatever your skin tone.

FAIR & LIGHT SKIN TONE

  1. If you have a pale, ivory complexion, avoid nudes that are too close to your own skin color.
  2. Go for warmer nudes with pink undertones. Think light peaches and pearly pinks. These hues will add a healthy, subtle flush to your complexion.

MEDIUM & OLIVE SKIN TONE

  1. Your skin most likely has some yellow or red undertones to it, so going for warmer makeup shades may give it an unattractive, ruddy look.
  2. Try cooler-toned nudes like gray-beiges or light taupes.

DARK & DUSKY SKIN TONE

  1. Dusky-skinned beauties are the most compatible with nude colors, as the shades contrast nicely with their complexion.
  2. Try nudes with golden-red or light brown undertones for a sheen-like finish that lets your skin really glow.
