I know firsthand that finding the perfect nude lipstick that works your skin tone is a real challenge!

I canโ€™t tell you how many times I bought a lipstick or gloss that looked amazing in the tube and once I put it on, it just totally washed out my face or looked terribly mismatched.2

Our natural lip colors are all different and then we have the skin tone we need to consider, too.

Today, weโ€™re focusing on the lovely ladies with dark complexions.

So, if you have a dark skin tone and find yourself having a hard time finding the perfect nude color, keep on reading for some useful tips to choose the best nude lipstick and never buy a dud again!

1. Donโ€™t Try to Match Your Exact Skin Tone

Rule number one: when it comes to nude lipsticks, avoid trying to match your skin tone to the lipstick.

I realize this advice sounds completely counterintuitive because, with most beauty products, weโ€™re trying to match as closely as possible.

In this case, weโ€™re looking for a lipstick that not only works with your lip color but your skin tone so you want to find a happy medium in between, not an exact match.

2. Donโ€™t Trust Lipstick Names

I love online shopping, especially for beauty products, because you can read reviews, look at swatches, look for discount codes, etc.

The major drawback is that you canโ€™t see the product in natural light or swatch it.

Same goes for the drugstore since products are packaged up and there typically arenโ€™t samples to play with.

No matter where you shop, avoid relying on the name of the line or product when youโ€™re picking products.

Most of the time, โ€œnudeโ€ applies to fairer skin but not on medium to deeper skin tones.

Nudes for darker skin were often named java or suggested a brown tone.

Swatch the product and test it out before you commit!
