A flawless nude lip can be your summer signature look this season – if done right. To get the perfect effect, choose a satin or crème formula (matte lipstick will leave you looking lifeless and washed out). If your skin is fair with pink undertones, choose a peachy pink nude. If you have a medium to olive complexion, lean more toward a mauve tone. And if you have a naturally dark skin tone, caramel and honey hued nudes will be the most flattering. Before you apply your ideal nude shade, blot your lips with your regular liquid foundation using a makeup sponge, or your fingers—it will neutralize your natural lip color and keep your shade in place all day.
For a great drugstore shade that’s quite neutral and would work well with most skin tones, try a creamy Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Soft Nude:
