12 Nude Lipsticks -- There's (at Least) One for Every Skin Tone
Plus, the tricks to mastering the barely-there trend
Surprisingly, it's the barely-there option that's harder to get right. Still, you don't need to be Sophia Loren to go nude. You just need to choose a shade that works with your skin tone, instead of making it appear washed out -- or, you know, like you just caked your lips in concealer.
Makeup guru Bobbi Brown says the trick is finding a shade that looks like "an enhanced version of your natural lip color." According to Brown, it's "not necessarily the color nude, but a shade that is one shade lighter or one shade deeper than your natural lip color."
We rounded up our favorite nude lipsticks for every skin tone, keeping in mind Brown's advice that "the right nude will in turn complement your complexion -- it enhances the skin tone, makes the eyes look brighter, and gives the face a lift."
