When it comes to lipsticks, however, it’s never a case of one-shade-fits-all. And shopping for a nude lipstick that best suits your skin tone is particularly tricky. Not only do you need to find the right shade, you also have to factor in the formula.
For the shades, versions of nude lipsticks go from beige to taupe to brown to peach. As a general rule, pick one that is one shade lighter or darker than your skin tone—never the exact match!
As for the formula, many beauty junkies would tell you to ditch matte because it tends to dry up the lips, and yes, in most cases, nude and matte don’t really complement each other. But, some matte lipsticks now come with moisturizing ingredients, so a matte nude lipstick could actually be a perfect match.
