Best Lipsticks For Warm Olive Skin With Brunette Hair

Why Are These The Best Lipsticks For Warm Olive Skin Tones?

If you have olive skin with neutral undertones these three lipstick shades are going to be the perfect place for you to start. Your makeup bag won’t be complete without reddish-brown, a tan nude, and a dusty rose with a brown undertone. We’ve gone into detail about each shade below, but for now let’s talk WHY.   

When choosing lipsticks for someone with a similar look as Esha pictured here, we’re really focused on enhancing features. The great thing about these colors is she’ll likely be able to still wear them as her features change over time. Maybe with only slight adjustments to how bold the colors are worn. 

Let’s talk base lip color, the color your lips are with nothing on them.  This is important because our lipsticks are designed to blend WITH your natural lip color not completely cover it up.  So, these lipsticks would look different on someone who started off with a brown or purple base lip color, and may not be our first choices. 

Esha’s base lip color is a nude and is slightly different than the color in her complexion.  Knowing your base lip color allows you to find lipstick shades that are just a shade deeper for a “my-lips-but-better” look – the perfect everyday lipstick for looking pulled together without any effort.  It’ll be your go-to, everyday lipstick. 

If your base lip color is anywhere in the nude range these are good choices for you.


Chai Love You – Sophisticated Nude

Chai Love You is a sophisticated nude lipstick with a reddish-brown undertone. Apply it delicately to have it work harmoniously with your base lip color or you can adorn your lips with a heavier application. Using this lipstick as an anchor color captures just the right amount of attention. This this the lipstick Esha is pictured wearing.

Naughty – Your No Lipstick Lipstick

Naughty can be nice! Naughty is a perfect, tan nude color with no shimmer, but still gives your lips a healthy shine that is oh-so glamorous. This lipstick can complement so many skin tones because it’s a great “no-lipstick-lipstick”. This shade gives your lips an even wash of color that looks completely natural, and is perfect for everyday or smokey nighttime eye look!

You might be wondering what other makeup will look amazing on your warm skin. Below, you’ll find lip pencils that will pair perfectly with the best lipsticks for you, that we talked about above. We also included some glosses that would look AMAZING with those lipsticks but also beautiful worn alone. Blush is one of our favorite products, because it brings your face to life – and the shade Coy, is by far the best blush for medium skin! You could also get away with Gotta Glow (peachy pink universally flattering blush) or Tango (true matte peach). Either way, your makeup bag will not be complete without blush – and we highly recommend a matte apricot pink blush in Coy.
