Finding the perfect lip shade that will complement your sun-tanned skin this season isn’t an easy task.

When it’s not too light or not too dark, the undertone of the shade doesn’t blend well with your skin. With beauty brands constantly pushing the envelope in terms of inclusivity and diversity, there is no longer a one-shade approach for all.

Celebrity-led brands like Fenty beauty and Rare Beauty have also set the bar high when it comes to catering to the needs of the consumer. Putting women of colour in the centre, cosmetic giants are offering a variety like never before.

If you don’t prefer the bright pinks and oranges and are constantly looking for nudes and browns that work well with your skin, the beauty God are finally listening and answering your prayer.

Even your favourtie beauty ‘it’ girls are sporting shades that are warmer and don’t particularly stand out on pigmented skin. Whether it’s Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Yara Shahidi or Simone Ahshley — these brown skin godesses have been acing the natural colour game.

If you haven’t found your go-to shade for summer and are still on the hunt, we’ve put together a list for you to choose from. From mocha brown and chestnut to terracotta, each of these shades are highly rich yet buttery smooth on application.
