The smoky eye, nude lip combo is classic, sexy, and looks hot on everyone. But it is hard to find a nude lipstick if you have dark skin, am I right? If it is too light, you look totally washed out and unnatural. The goal is to look like you are not wearing lipstick at all, to put the focus on the smoldering eye.

So, I thought I’d update this list with the absolute best nude lipstick choices for 2013 – straight from perfectly lined and glossed lips of top makeup artist and owner of Aa’raish Salon, Anjum Darakshan.
Note: She is a certified MAC makeup artist, so these choices are all MAC products, naturally! Also, she says it is extremely key to pair a nude lip with a dark eye. If you don’t, I will warn you – you are going to achieve what I call the ‘corpse’ look. I’d save that one for Halloween myself…
Anjum’s Favorite Nude Lipstick Picks:
MAC Spirit – Coordinates with MAC Quartz Lip Pencil
MAC Angel – Coordinates with MAC Quartz Lip Pencil
MAC Twig – Coordinates with MAC Quartz Lip Pencil
MAC Honeylove – Coordinates with MAC Spice Lip Pencil
I already use MAC Angel often and love it! I also love Derwish Lip Pencil.
Another tip from Anjum – nude lipsticks go well with pinkish or peachy liners, anything except for brown. I know you don’t want to bring back the 90’s dark liner/light lipstick combo!
