A good nude lippie can last you longer than you think. Finding that one holy grail shade you can use every day saves you from rummaging through your makeup bag for a tube that’ll compliment the rest of your look. Because in theory, the best nude lippie for your skin tone should be a shade that’s closest to your lip color—as if you’re not wearing any product even if you really are—and would suit whatever eye or cheek makeup you’ve got on.
To help you find that one true nude, we asked models Selina Bhang, Gray Del Fierra, and Agie Stoeckel—models who represent the quintessential chinita, morena, and mestiza respectively—to share their favorite nude lippies and why they’ve narrowed it down to two to three products.
