How to Get Sexy Lips

Special Offer

A nude pout is sexy now. To get it, go peach rather than beige (which can appear corpselike). Here's what works with your skin tone.

Fair to Medium Skin

To keep your lips from disappearing into your pale complexion, steer clear of anything matte or sheer. An opaque gloss — in peach or peachy-pink — is your best bet, says celebrity makeup artist Matin Maulawizada. For maximum impact, pair with lightly bronzed skin.

Try: Lorac Lip Polish in Beauty, $17.50; sephora.com.
