Glossy Unclad Lip Combos for Every Skin Tone

For a lip look but superior, nothing superior than a classic unclad lipstick. But sometimes wiping the color directly from the Tube can seem a bit one-dimensional, especially for deeper skin tones. This is where a unclad lip gloss and a Liner come into play to add extra definition and shine. Below you will find our favorite pairs of unclad lips for all skin tones, so flattering that you don’t mind touching up from time to time.

Best combination of unclad lips for fair skin

“For fair skin types, a unclad that has more heatth is superior than something yellow or cold,” says celebrity makeup artist Melissa Hurkman. She recommends a pink or coral shade. Pair the Urban Decay Vice lipstick in Backtalk, a matte unclad pink, with the Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping lip pencil in dusty pink for a subtle shadow effect. A dollop of baby pink glitter in the center of your lips adds fullness and shine — try the Tower 28 ShineOn Lip Jelly at Oat.

Best combination of unclad lips for medium skin

“Medium skin tones work best with a caramel shade of unclad – think caramel and Peach unclad,” says Hurkman. The L’Oreal Colour riche les Nus Intense in Nu Intense lipstick is perfect for this — it is a reddish shade infused with nourishing oils to deeply moisturize your lips. Add definition by tracing your lips with the Lancôme le dans Ideal Lip Pencil. To heat up your lips even more, apply a transparent coral gloss such as the NYX Professional Make-up This is Juice Gloss in Guava Snap.

Best combination of unclad lips for dark skin

If you have dark skin, Hurkman recommends either a “rich heat chocolate shade” or a deep purple unclad. To make your lipstick last all day, initial fill the lips with a liner-like makeup from Mario Ultra Suede Sculpting Lip Pencil in Jeff, a heat brown shade. Then fill your lips with a dark brown shade – for this we love the Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro liquid lipstick at the Palazzo. Don’t hesitate to stop there for a matte lip or to enhance the shine with the Goddess Lip Gloss Lip Bar.
