Tip #1 Don’t match your skin

Your lips naturally vary in color from the rest of your skin. A common mistake is trying to match your skin tone or even covering your lips with foundation. If you’re experimenting and trying something new, go for it! If you’re trying to get that classic nude lip look – avoid. It will make your face look longer and more dull and drab since you are minimizing color.

 

Tip #2 Try out a warm tone and a cool tone

Undertones can change the way a color looks on your skin. Try lippies with warm tones to give you a soft and feminine touch, or cool tones for more edge. Bonus: cool undertones make your teeth look whiter!

 

Tip #3 Experiment with colors

Nude does not always equal beige! You can find nudes in brown, tan, yellow or pink shades. Try out a bunch to expand your go-to nudes collection!
