If you have an olive or darker skin tone, wearing a wrong nude color could cause a disaster!

Retno Wulandari   16 September 2016 14:27 - Nude lipsticks are currently so popular but they're not for everyone. Especially for those with olive skin tone (Asian “sawo matang” skin) or "sun-kissed", it's important to choose the right nude colors that match their skin tone.

For those with skin tones other than fair or nude, wearing a wrong nude lipstick can be disastrous. You will look rather pale like a sick person, dull, or even worse. But don’t worry, we have your back. We have some shortlisted nude lipsticks that will look perfect on olive to light brown skin, ranging from nude pinks, nude corals, to nude browns. Oh, they’re just delicious!
