For the uninitiated, MLBB means “my lips but better”. These are the shades in nude hues which enhance the natural colour of your lips and make them look so much better. Let’s find out how you can find one such shade for your lips.
Try it on bare face:
Whenever you go lipstick shopping, make sure you go sans any makeup. You will be able to see the lip colour and natural tone of your complexion on a clean and makeup free face than on face with makeup on!
Pick a satin or creamy finish:
Matte nude lippie might not be your everyday pick so you can go for nude lipsticks with satiny finishes for a perfect MLBB look. If you want to glam up your look then you can top it off with a gloss.
Do not buy them online:
No matter how much you feel that this is your perfect shade online, if you are a first time buyer, stay away from shopping online. If you want to restock on the lipstick then it is fine, but if it is your first time, then go to the store by yourself and swatch as many as you can.
Match it to the right places:
Swatching the lipstick on the back of your hand might not be a great idea as for most of us, that skin colour and the colour of our lips don’t match! Try to find a shade that matches the darkest shade of your lip; you can test colors on your fingertips.
Consider your skin tone:
Women with fair complexions should look for blue undertones like berry tones and pinks. Lip colors like caramel, warm beiges and corals will complement those medium skin shades, or those who have yellow undertones. If you have medium skin shade with olive undertones then go for light creamy pink, soft beige or peach. Darker skins tones with cool undertones can go for nude lippies with deep burgundy, red and plum undertones while with yellow undertones can go for caramel shades of nude.
