Every woman should have a natural shade of lipstick that she can swipe on without looking in the mirror. The right lip color for you is based on three things: your style, your natural lip color, and your skin tone.
To find your best nude, find a shade that matches the color of your lips when you bite them. This will become your go-to color for an everyday natural lip. It’s always best to shop and test shades when you are barefaced. You’ll know when you have found the right shade because it will give your complexion a lift and make your eyes appear brighter, even when the lipstick is all you have on.
In general, the most flattering natural hue will either match or be slightly darker than your lips. Avoid shades lighter than your lips, especially those with grey or beige undertones which can make you look washed out.
