Picking The Perfect Nude Lip Shade

Nude lipstick isn't easy to choose or wear, and yet, when it's done right, nude lips are both classic and modern.

Nude lipstick looks wrong when the color is too pasty or pale. Yes, it can look corpse-like. That is why your skin tone matters when you pick up a tube of neutral makeup.

A lot of celebrities wear the dark, smoky eye with a nude lip, including Kim Kardashian, Pam Anderson, and Nicole Scherzinger.

Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell has this beauty advice when you DON'T want a bold pout( In Style mag):

1. Easy on the Application
"Nude will cake up if it's applied wrong, so use a light hand." Spread it out with a lip brush.

2.  One Step-Up on the Color
"A shade one level darker than your natural lips creates subtle contrast."

3. Rosy Hues = Warmth for Fair Skin    
Peachy Beiges = Bring Out Medium Tones    
Copper = Sparkles on Darker Complexions
