The most important thing when looking for a nude lipstick is to remember nude isn’t a designated color. There is no one specific nude shade that everyone needs to have because nude lipstick depends entirely on your skin tone. What might look great on someone with deep olive skin might look less than stellar on someone with an ivory complexion and that’s fine. All that matters if finding a shade that mixes perfectly with your skintone.
