Usually the first thing that runs through most of our minds when we think about how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick is that it should match our skin color. 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.
1. Match Your Lip Color, Not Your 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.
