When it comes to MAC lipsticks, I generally stay towards the nude end of the spectrum. Because I’m so pale, bright colours tend to make me look washed out but a deep nude suits my skin tone nicely. I have five MAC lipsticks that I keep on rotation for when I want to wear a nude lip. Some are matte, and then one or two are satin or amplified. In terms of wearability and smudging, I never have problems with a classic MAC lippy.
Finding this many nude lipsticks to suit my skin tone was surprising. Due to my heritage – half anglo indian, half white, I have very pale skin with a deep olive undertone. This is where MAC goes above other brands for me, they have sooo many options! Although the colours look a lot darker on me than other people, I think anything lighter wouldn’t do my skin any favours. I could probably visit a MAC store and find another five nude lippy’s, however I don’t think thats entirely necessary hah!
So, here it is – my list of go to MAC Lipsticks for when I’m feeling a good nude lip:
