The Best Nude Lipstick Shades to Try for Your Skin Tone
1. Soft Pink and Light Rose Nude
Perfect for: Fair skin tones
If you have a fair complexion, soft pink nudes are perfect for your pout. For a more natural look, go with a softer pink or mauve that goes almost matches the hue of your lips. Or, you can opt for a nude warm pink, if you want something versatile and works well with most undertones.

2. Muted Pink Nude
Perfect for: Light-medium skin tones
For those that are in between a fair and medium complexion, you can rely on muted neutral pinks for that model off-duty vibe. A cool-toned pink nude shade also works on this range of skin tones, especially if you're wearing a dramatic eye or want warm undertones in your skin pop.

Nude pinks with hints of brown work really well with medium skin tones, as it incorporates the natural hues on your skin. Make sure to pick shades with a deeper tone that matches your coloring to avoid looking pale!

4. Beige Nude
Perfect for: Olive skin tones
Here’s the trick to finding the right nude for your olive skin tone: base it on your undertone! If you have a yellow-toned complexion, you should look for a beige brown lipstick like MAC’s Velvet Teddy to play up with the warmth of your skin. If you have a cool undertone, lining your lips with a darker lip liner and topping it off with a beige lippie should do the trick!
