Charlotte knows that finding a nude lipstick to perfectly flatter your medium skin tone can be tricky, so discover her magical makeup tips and tricks to find your perfect shade in a flash!

Firstly, when looking for a pout-perfecting shade, it’s best to avoid shades that are too similar to your skin tone. Choosing a hue that’s too similar to your skin could wash out your complexion, so it’s best to look for nude lipsticks that are slightly lighter, or slightly darker than your skin instead.

Nude lipstick shades with a rosy-pink, peach or berry hue tend to flatter medium complexions the best, complimenting the warmer undertones in the skin. Remember, always remember to wear with a matching lip liner to define and create the illusion of a fuller-looking pout!


Charlotte’s NEW! nude lipstick for medium skin comes from the MAGICAL world of Pillow Talk! Discover Matte Revolution lipstick in Pillow Talk Medium, a dreamy berry-rose lipstick with a modern matte finish.

Inspired by the ICONIC, globally-adored, nude-pink lip shade in Pillow Talk Original, this dialled up, deeper hue of Pillow Talk looks gorgeous for every mood, every moment and every skin tone – especially medium skin tones.
