Whether you are pairing it with dark smokey eyes or are going for a nude/ natural look, finding the right nude for you is very essential. Just like finding your prefect red can take a lot of testing, the nudes need to match your undertones, skin color and lip color to add the needed effect. I have myself tried tons of lipsticks to achieve the perfect nude lip. I hope this list I got from the Instyle Magazine makes your choice easier !

For Fair Skin:
Try beige shades with pink undertones
Rec: Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Crustal Shine in BG 901S - $23

Try flesh toned nudes that mimic your natural lipcolor
Rec: Make-up Designory lipstick in Sandy Beach - $15

For Medium Skin:
Soft, peachy nudes help warm the complexion.
Rec: Rimmel London Lasting Finish lipstick in Birthday Suit - $6

Rose Tinted Gold provides a luxurious dose of sparkle.
Prestige Satin Pearl Lipstick in Diva - $5

For Dark Skin:
Pink Mochas are flattering on dark skin tone.
Rec: Laura Mercier Lip Color in Aurora - $22

Also try toasty gold flecked browns.
Rec: Clinique Color Surge Lipstick in Sassy Spice -$14
