Weird Trick To Find Your Perfect Lip Shade

Posted on by James James

The Perfect Shade of Nude Lipstick Should Match Your Nipples? Err... Not So Fast

Clearly, this is not your average beauty tip. But, I guess we all learn something new every day!

It’s a big part of what keeps life so fascinating, my friends. If this weird tip proves factual, and some say it has already, then it wouldn’t be the first crazy thing we’ve heard from beauty experts or connoisseurs.

So, thankfully there’s no cause for much hurrah.

If you’re wondering where this titbit of knowledge came from or if we’re totally making some fake news with this one, then watch this segment from the NBC TV show, The Doctors.

In this clip, a male physician and certified expert, Travis Lane Stork M.D., posits this theory that nature already put your best lipstick shade right under your nose and all you have to do now is match your nipple color. That simple?

 

Right. well, who would have guessed?

This is certainly one of those unconventional tips and when the Internet got wind of it, or should I say Twitter, most of us were definitely shook. I mean, does the simple technique really work? Could it have been so simple to find a perfect lippie all along? Apparently, yes and no.

 

While the reason behind this nipple trick from nature makes so much sense when you think about it… it is not exactly foolproof. Which leaves us with the question,
 

Now, will it work for you?

This trick is great but as demonstrated by Elisa Flores, a professional makeup artist, you’d have to try it out to see for yourself that it works with your skin.

 

Finding the lipstick that best compliments your skin tone could be achieved by swatching hues that match your nipples, but on either extreme end of the color spectrum (that is for those who are fair or very dark-skinned), the trick may not exactly prove to be all that useful.

 

Why? Well, because if you’re either very light or very dark, a lipstick of the same color as your nipples will be washed out and not accentuate your lips the way you’d like.

 

So maybe it’s not this amazing trick that’s been chilling in your bra, waiting for you to discover after all. Or maybe it is.

We don’t recommend taking off your shirts to free the nipples at Sephora just yet but it’s worth a try to see if this can up your makeup game.

 

And, if it works for you, here’s how we’d be celebrating with you from here

 

Go on, get out all your lipsticks, take your dress/shirt off and start trying this expert tip out already. Just be sure to let us know how it goes.

 

Also remember that this is likely not the end-all dubious hack to every makeup enthusiast’s search for the perfect nude lipstick shade. You’d likely have to do this a few times over the course of your life when you notice changes in the hue of your nipples.

 

Yep, this happens often with differences in hormonal and estrogen levels, stress and even weather. Surely though, we can all agree it’s a fun guide and an excellent way to spend some free time...
