How to choose a nude

CEMokaClick on top title to open and scroll   The classic nude look is elegant and sexy, but all nudes are not equal. Pick the wrong nude and you will look washed out and pasty.

If you want to try this chic summer trend be sure to follow these tips:


Nude nail and lip colours are sheer so they show up every little imperfection.


Exfoliate your lips with a clean wash cloth or lip scrub to make smooth and fresh,


Use a balm to moisturize.


Nude polish can magnify flaws, so take care to file nails, trim cuticles, and remove smears.


Avoid matte and frosted nudes. Naturally shiny or shimmery nudes look best.


If you have fair-ivory skin, go for a nude with pink undertones.


If you have fair-porcelain skin, use a nude with peach undertones.


If you have a medium skin tone you can wear true rich nudes with or without a hint of bronze for the summer.


Olive skin often has golden undertones that look good with bronze or coppery nudes. When buying a neutral nude for olive skin, be sure the shade has no grey or lavender undertones.


Dark skin glows in rich brown shades. Be sure the colour is not more than two shades darker than your lips and skin. Also, make sure it has no grey undertone. Match your lip and nail shade to your skin’s undertones.


If you are not sure of your skin’s undertone list the colours look best on you. If you look best in blues and greens your skin has cool undertones and you should look for plums and burgundy tones. If reds and oranges light you up then your skin has warm undertones and you should look for orange-reds, peach, and coral.
