One thing which is the best with nude is that it literally goes with every color and gives a very formal and classy vibes. And if we keep in mind that the shade should always elevate your look and not downgrade it then nude aces it.

3.      Try Peach

Peach is considered to be a perfect shade for outing as well as Office. It goes with every skin shade and is perfect for a white dress. Peach is compared to nude all the time but believe me it’s not the same.

Peaches are a lot warmer than the nudes. Peach when paired with white looks gives you a very subtle vibes which you were getting in the rose pink but this one is a little in the orange family.

It is advised to use Peach lipstick with a lip gloss to elevate your overall look.

4.      Fuchsia lipstick

Fushia is such a beautiful shade that anyone can go head over heels over it. and if you are wearing white you need to try it. It looks electrifying. Fuschia adds the colour you need to your white.

And red suits every skin tone. It said what it had to say: don’t even step back while wearing a red shade.

6.      Poppy Orange

You can choose orange when you want to add a little pop of color to you overall look. Orange is a warm color so you have to be a little safe with it. Make sure you do not pick a shade of orange that is too bright, killing the vibes of white.

Try and keep it minimal so that it compliments white and does not dominate it. If you ask for advice then I would suggest you go for orange with some undertones of pink.

If your orange is becoming eye-itching you can add a little bit of lip balm on top of it to cool it down.

7.      Plum lipstick with white dress

Not just your beautiful white dress but also your face will also steal the spotlight when you will apply plum lipstick with white dress. Plum is a highly saturated and highly pigmented shade. It is said to be the color of braves.  So be brave enough to try this shade.

It is suitable for night events like clubbing to a formal event like meetings. Where white will represent your calmness on the other side, plum shows your confidence.

8.      Bronze

Bronze lip shade can be worn by everyone if they make a choice, but it looks best on deep and olive skin shade. It is like mixing nude and brown. and just like that if you are going for an event which is neither too formal or too bold try applying bronze in that case it will work the best.

A matte formula for a bronze one looks better than creamier one. Well you can try other formulas too.

9.      Brown

Brown shade looks so good on a white dress. if you really want everyone to look at your lipstick go for brown. Brown is a surreal lipstick and it cannot be worn every time so it’s the best time to wear that brown lipstick.

Brown lipsticks also give a lot of vintage vibes to your look and makes you look mature.
