If you are new to the world of brown lipstick, we recommend starting with a warm brown lipstick shade like the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Fighter. This everyday warm-toned brown matte lipstick pairs perfectly with simple eye makeup and a winged eyeliner look. Keep the rest of the makeup simple and neutral to keep your lips the star of the show. To amp up the look, get bold and beautiful eyes by going heavy on the mascara and eyeliner. This easy hack will add drama to your eyes while still keeping the overall look soft and effortless. If you are on the hunt of a true warm brown matte lipstick that has orange undertones, the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Globetrotter is a peachy-warm brown lipstick shade that will flatter all Indian skin tones, regardless of your undertone.
If you love dark and bold shades of brown lipstick, à la Kylie Jenner, the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Crayon Lipstick in the shade Live On The Edge will coat your lips in a rich and luscious chocolate shade, reminiscent of a warm cup of mocha! Dress it up or keep it simple, this brown matte lipstick is perfect for the office meeting or a glamorous dinner date with your partner. To keep all eyes on the lips, use soft, neutral shades for the rest of the makeup. Subtle brown eyeshadow, a touch of warm bronzer on your cheeks, and a champagne-gold highlighter on the high points of your face are all you need to complete the look. Avoid wearing too much colour on your face like bright pink cheeks or a bold blue eyeshadow as these colours will clash with your brown lipstick shade, making your makeup look messy and chaotic.
For those of you who like to play safe with your lipsticks, a nude brown lipstick shade is perfect for entering the brown lipstick territory without stepping out of your comfort zone. The best part about nude brown lipsticks is that you can add as much colour to the rest of your makeup as you like. From a deep red eyeshadow to bright peach cheeks, play with the rest of your look without worrying too much about your lipstick shade. The Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick in the shade Clay Crush is a flattering nude-brown matte lipstick that you can rock anywhere, from the boardroom to the club. Simply switch up the rest of your makeup from soft and simple to dramatic glam, and the rock the shade of brown lipstick from morning to night. Nude brown lipstick shades are also great options for monochrome looks. Use the same lipstick as an eyeshadow and a creamy blush and voila! a quick and easy monochrome makeup with just one product!
