Nude lipsticks are the best thing that happened in 2020 when it comes to bridal makeup. While there is an entire world that can be filled with nude lipsticks, given the amount of shades everyday a makeup label introduces, the one question that plagued our brides was - What color lipstick looks good on Indian skin? When it comes to nude shades, the options are plenty so which is that one colour or hue that suits Indian brides. Who better than the experts to answer this? We asked our bridal makeup artists on their favourite nude lipstick shade and this is what they said.

I have three favourites which look stunning on Indian brides. One is Pat McGrath’s Luxe trance in the shade Donatella. What’s also an absolute perfect nude lip colour is, Charlotte Tilbury’s Bitch perfect and KIM K. They both are available in India. One must keep in mind that India being a very diverse country we have women in all skin tones, hence there are varied types of nude coloured lipsticks which suit all these skin tones. A pale nude lip colour will translate as white washed and ashes grey on someone with a warm skin tone and hence you need to up the intensity of nude used.

When it comes to nude lipsticks, if you ask me - What color lipstick should a bride wear? I would always always recommend MAC Mehr!
I absolutely love the lip pencil from MAC in the shade, Spice when it comes to a nude lip. It suits most Indian skin tones and most of my brides have loved it whenever I have used it. Infact they have even picked it up for their own personal use after the wedding!

Nude lip shades are beautiful, however choosing them cautiously is necessary to avoid making the face look washed out! Opting for a semi matte or matte nude hue will accentuate the look just right. For Fair tone brides, peachy nudes top the game like warm-toned, Mademoiselle by MAC with a matte finish. For the cult staying power, would recommend Girlfriend by Huda beauty which is a light apricot shade in matte. For medium to dusky tones, would recommend a touch of pinks or Reds in the nudes. I would recommend Wifey by Huda Beauty which is one of the most the prettiest pinkish nude. My go-to shade for all complexions would be the hot selling iconic matt nude-pink, Pillow Talk by Charlotte Tilbury topped with a slight gloss for the sheen.

Huda Beauty’s power bullet matte lipstick in the shade honeymoon. It's pinkish nude. This shade is bright and vibrant suitable for various skin tones. It is a waterproof lipstick and doesn't smudge or bleed. Overall I recommend this lipstick because they have an amazing formula.
