If you’ve been thinking that all of these years I’m here to tell you unless you’ve got a cold and your lips actually match your skin, you’re wrong.

It can be hard at first but with a few tips I’ll show you how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick for every shade of skin.

If you’re trying to find out how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick for your skin it’s time to look at your lip color and not your skin color.

Press your lips together a few times so that the blood will rush to them and then take a snapshot of them on your phone.

You want to try and find a blush, berry or black honey shade that will blend in with your lip color.

Look at the inside of your wrist at your veins.

If they appear blue then you have blue undertones.

If they take on a slightly greenish hue, then you have yellow or warm undertones.

If you can’t tell, you most likely have neutral undertones which means you can opt for a nude lipstick that’s either on the blueish side or yellow side.

Take your pick!
