The Ultimate Guide to Picking the Best Nude Lipstick for Your Skin Tone

Finding the perfect nude lipstick is harder than it sounds. Too dark, and you look like you're trying to make brown lipstick happen (and not in a cool '90s way). Too light, and you start to resemble the living dead. But nail the right nude lipstick shade and life (or at least getting ready) will seem so much easier. The perfect nude will make your skin look alive, your eyes sparkly and will work with everything from that velvet suit to your grey knit and cropped jean combo.
