10 Nude Lipsticks for Black Women with Dark Skin

Avatar • Jan 10, 2017

As a woman with dark skin, a “nude” lipstick that may work on someone with a lighter complexion may leave me looking as though my lips are chapped and dry. Kind of like Tyrone:

Okay, maybe not as bad as Tyrone’s but close enough. That was until I realized that “nude” lipstick on women with dark skin has a whole other meaning. Nude typically involves shades of brown or, at the very least, a brown lipliner to give a more natural appearance. Check out these lovely examples for inspiration:

These colors look great on these ladies, especially 1,5, and 10. I’m really loving the first one!

The lady with the natural hair(pic 5) looks really good. She looks fresh, easy breezy and authentic.
Second best is the lady with the faux locs, the specs really suit her and she has a gorgeous smile. Beautiful indeed 🙂

The lipsticks are great. Moving forward, can we kill the “highlight bright as headlights” trend? It’s only cute on Rudolph.
