We are currently all on a quest for that MLBB (My Lips But Better) lipstick shade. It’s not a nude, but a colour that’s a shade lighter/darker to the natural colour of your lips, and has the power to flatter your skin tone without being too obvious.
The key to finding your perfect shade is knowing your skin tone. If you have warm undertones, choose warmer hues such as lipsticks with red undertones (colours which are more saturated); and if your skin colour has cool undertones, opt for shades with blue/purple undertones. Stay away from mattes as well – the key is to look as natural as possible. Here are some of our favourite MLBB lipsticks for a range of different skin tones.
