If there is one thing we struggle with in India, its to find nude lipsticks that really work for our medium skin tone. Some make us look like an evil ghost from a horror movie, while others just dont do anything !. So what are some of those fabulous nudes we see Indian Celebs sporting with smokey eyes? Here are my top 1o for Indian Medium to Dark Skintones (Lighter lovelies- you can find nudes much easier than all of us, so most of these cater to medium skintones)
In No Particular Order
1. Bobbi Brown Soft Rose: Iv said it before- Bobbi makes some of the best nude lipsticks for our kind of skintone, and ever since her store opened in Delhi, its been a huge saviour for all of us thristy for that perfect nude. Soft Rose is a beautiful deep, peachy brown that is not necessarily a nude , but can work as a color that is as much a nude as a regular everyday shade
2. Bobbi Brown Nude Rose: This one is a definite nude with a slight pink undertone. Really pretty on medium and dark skintones and perfect for smokey eyes. The pink undertone gives it character, and its a color that is universally flattering
2. Mac Hug Me Lipstick: A personal favourite for me, and a nude lipstick that medium toned girls will enjoy. Darker skintones may get a tad bit washed out , but i absolutely love this. Im wearing it with a soft pink lip liner in the above picture, and even though this lipstick is sheer, it works beautifull for indian skintones
3. Nyx Frappucino Lipstick: I swear, if only this lipstick could get its melting issues in place, this would be one of my total all time favourite nude. Super creamy, super pretty, peachy nude that works for darker and medium skintones both. uff, it is so pretty but it melts faster than an ice lolly in Sahara Desert so beware!
4. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Bare: Another one that i cannot strictly classify as a nude because it can very well be worn as an everyday color for medium and deeper skintones, but can also be worn with smokey eyes without washing you out
5.Colorbar Creme Cup: Pretty pretty, peachy nude. This works as a neutral color for lighter skintones, but as a definite nude for medium and darker skintones. If you are looking for a softer , pretty peach nude then give Creme Cup a whirl!
6. Bourjois Sweet Kiss SIenne Kiss : Another Peachy nude that is perfect for medium skintones. May wash out darker skintones, so try it in the store if you are darker than NC 40, but for medium girls, this is polished, peach perfection.
7. Maybelline My Mahogany: Probably one of the most talked about lipsticks on the Indian Blogosphere and rightfully so, this one by Maybelline is so versatile it doubles up as a great everyday shade as well as a fantastic nude shade. Its a beautiful toffee color with just a hint of pink and looks lovely on medium and deep skintones. If you havent got this one already- buy it now!
8. Mac Mocha Lipstick: Mocha is another one of my personal favourites, and it is a lipstick that can be worn naturally with light eyes as well as with dark smokey eyes and hence its a very versatile peachy-brown nude. Its just a super, great color for deeper skintones and one i think should be in every darker brides trouseau, Wear it with a peach anarkali, or just go smokey glam and pair it with that ! Mocha works every time!
2 more slots left !! Shall update them when i find some more suitable lipsticks
