Nude Lipstick

Since there are many skin tones, identifying your best complexion-matching color requires some experimentation like, color matching. Like mannequin nails, nude lips look best when the color is one shade lighter or darker than your complexion, rather than an exact match. Here’s a quick list of nude lippies for most skin types.

Lash Liqiud Lipstick

Tom Ford Lip Color

"This nude-y shade came into my life after a makeup artist used it on me for a recent event. The creamy café au lait might be the most photogenic color I've ever worn." —Leah Chernikoff, Editorial Director

Anastasia

"I don't really wear nude lipstick—I feel like it gives me a ghostly, Miss Havisham vibe—but I like this nude-tone gloss that has some color, but enough pink in it to give me life...plus I love a good shine." —Sally Homes, Senior News Editor

Nars

"I like to have two types of nude lipsticks in my arsenal: 1) the beige-y, opaque nudes that are meant to be noticed and feel sort of fashion-y, and 2) the sheerer, slightly pinker nudes that are meant to be subtler. This is my favorite of the latter, the perfect understated lip color for when I really want my eyes to be the focus." —Natalie Matthews, Senior Editor
