Nude lippies for darker skin

Hello my beauties! Here’s a little makeup post for you guys, now I know I’m no expert but I thought I’d tell you guys the wee bit I’ve come to know.

As a girl in an indian community, having dark skin is not easy, fairer skin tones are idealized. It took me a while to accept that people aren’t going to change anytime soon. I’ve now come to love and own my skin colour! #melaninrules! However, sometimes I see a gorgeous shade of lipstick and sigh because I know it’s just way too light for me. These generally tend to be nude colours, a trend which I am crazy about. So I thought I’d show you guys what nude colours I love on my lips, and hey maybe even help someone out there who reads this.

These are definitely my favourites!

First from the top is an L.A Girl Creme Lipstick in the shade Kiss and Tell. If you’re looking for a reddish brown nude, this is perfect and it’s super cheap! It has a super smooth satin finish and lasts all day!

Second is the color Stone, from MAC. I saw this lipstick on instagram and had to have it! A lot of people feel like they have to work themselves up to wear this, but just be you and you rock this colour! It has a matte finish and glides on so well. I find it best to go in a with a darker lip liner, just to give your lips that oomf! Here I am wearing Stone (without a lipliner).

Third is Baracuda, a dusty rose shade, from Colourpop in the Ultra Satin Lip collection. I bought this off of an instagram store (Cupid’s Bow) as Colourpop is not directly available in South Africa. If you live here you should check out their site, they have some amazing brands! Baracuda has become my go to lipstick. I’ve kinda forgotten that I own any other… Oops. If you’re looking for a pinky nude then this is it!

Ooooh Barracuda…

And last but not least is a lip liner I picked up yesterday actually! It’s by Essence and the colour is 05 Soft Berry. I lined my lips with it and then just filled them in and it looked so pretty!

I hope you guys enjoyed this little post, if you did; comment, like and share please!

Love Cayla….
