The Best Nude Shades For Your Skin Tone

The Best Nude Shades For Your Skin Tone

on

Because there are so many neutral shades, it can be a bit overwhelming to know which one is the perfect match. Neutrals don't have to be boring either. You can pick a shade with lilac or rose undertones for a small hint of color. No matter the occasion or season, neutrals complement every look.

Fair/Light Skin Tones

For those with porcelain or fair complexions, a soft pinkish-nude with cool undertones is the choice for you. You'll want to avoid shades that go too warm or brown.

Medium Skin Tones

For those with medium complexions, choose a taupe or lilac-toned nude for a perfect match. You'll want to avoid neutrals that are too peachy or orange.

Olive Skin Tones

If you have a complexion with yellow or gold undertones, you'll want to choose a sandy- or coffee-colored neutral. The warmth of these colors complements that of your skin, creating the perfect combination.

Dark Skin Tones

For darker complexions, darker taupes are the best pick. You could try a polish with a hint of rose for a color that's work appropriate. If you want to liven things up a little, choose a shade with a grey undertone.

Deep Skin Tones

 

Look for shades with a hint of mauve to complement deep skin tones. Light colors can make the nails look fake against dark skin tones.
