Best Mac Nude For Tan Skin

Posted By admin On 15.02.22

Fact: All brown-skinned beauties know the struggle is real when it comes to finding the perfect neutral lip color — mainly because women with deeper skin tones have undertones that result in 'nudes' (which are often not made for women with darker skin in mind) that make our lips look super-ashy or washed out.

A swipe of nude lipstick is an effortless way to, well, look like you made some effort. As long as the shade flatters your skin tone, that is.

But Nigerian beauty vlogger Kiitan has figured it out what works for her, and she's here to share.

A post shared by Kiitan A. (@kiitana) on

In her recent YouTube tutorial, Kiitan showed her viewers which nude shades look stunning on her and how to wear them. Bonus: They're all affordable AF — they're each under $20! Because who doesn't want to slay in the perfect neutral hue and avoid breaking the bank while they're at it? *Raises hand.*

1. She started by lining her lips with MAC's lip liner in 'Chestnut' and swiping on Colourpop's Ultra Matte Lip in 'Limbo,' $6. Yas to this chocolate '90s brown!


2. Her second shade is NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Abu Dhabi,' $6. The ombré effect she creates with the deep brown liner is everything.


3. Her next fave is Colourpop's Lippie Stix in 'Pitch,' $5. The subtle sheen of this rich cocoa-colored lip color gives this standout shade depth.


4. Her next nude of choice is MAC's Lipglass in 'Spite,' $16. This taupe-brown hue also has a tinge of plum, which is why it looks so poppin' on her.


5. Another one of Kiitan's go-to nudes is Colourpop's Ultra Matte Lip in 'Beeper,' $6. This chocolate mauve also has a hint of gray, making this shade my personal fave.


6. The last nude she shows off is NYX's Soft Matte Lip cream in 'Berlin,' $6. This warm brown shade gives her skin a gorgeous glow.


What's more, you can get all six of these nude shades for a total of $45. In other words, you're winning at life when it comes to your lipstick game thanks to Kiitan!
