Finding the perfect nude lippie can be a tough quest even with so many different shades offered by so many brands (trust me, I haven’t found mine yet!). Well, apparently we’ve been thinking way too hard about it. The trick is to simply check what’s under your bra. Your nipples ladies, yes the truth has come out! The easiest way for you to find that perfect shade is just by looking at the colour of your nipple.

On an episode of the American daytime talk show, The Doctors, host and physician Dr. Travis Lane Stork M.D., said the shade you’re looking for comes from what’s already on you, “It’s oh so simple, nature knows best!” he said.

While we’re excited to go and try out this new trick, it doesn’t necessarily work for all women. According to Makeup Artist, Elisa Flower, on Refinery29, “This nipple trick can be useful for [most] skin tones, but not so great for those who are very fair or very dark skinned,”

The reason is because every person has different shades of nipples and some may have a lighter hue. If the colour is too light, then it will wash you out. Furthermore, when you apply lipstick, the colour will change according to the temperature of your body as well as the blood flow and levels of one’s hormone, she told Refinery29. She added that this may be more of a guide than a rule to keep in mind the next time you’re searching for the perfect nude lipstick shade.
