Blessed indeed are the women born with a wheatish skin tone! The common Indian genhua complexion is any makeup artist’s dream come true. It is compatible with the largest number of shades and products. Here, we have compiled for you, a list of the most suitable lipstick shades that will pair perfectly with wheat.
But first things first. Before picking up the right lipstick shade, you need to know your ‘skin undertone’.
Whether you are aware of it or not, there are basically two skin undertones – warm and cool. And yes, there’s a neutral too. There are several techniques to identify yours, be it wrapping yourself in a white towel and wearing a bulky gold necklace or checking the colour of your veins on your wrists.

Best Lipstick Shades for Wheatish Skin Tone with Warm Undertone
Wheatish skin complexion gives you a lot of confidence to carry off anything and everything gorgeously. So, if you ever wished you had a lighter skin tone, just eject that thought right away! There are plenty of lip shade options for Indian skin tones, specifically wheatish or beige complexion, although there are a few you must steer clear off. So before we begin what’s hot on your lips, let’s first see what’s not. Nude, neon, and coral are some of the lip shades we do not recommend for your skin tone. You will however find many beauty experts suggesting these lipstick shades for wheatish and even dusky skin tone but if you trust DusBus, it’s not even worth a try.
