If we've learned anything from the runways and red carpets recently, it's that a nude lip color never goes out of style. Perfect for any time of the year, this classic shade should find itself in every girl's beauty bag - but which one to choose? The hardest part is finding just the right hue, then it's time to choose between the seemingly never-ending amount of formulas and finishes!
Get the Look has put together a little guide to simplify the tedious task of finding your perfect nude lip color. Ready? Right this way...
As a basic rule of thumb, your perfect nude lip color should be a shade between your natural lip color and your skin tone: this is the first step in helping you narrow down your options. Just like when you try on foundation, don't hesitate to step outside and compare shades in natural sunlight.
You might find as well that you need different shades for winter and summer. Some people favor a beige shade in the summer months as it looks gorgeous against bronzed skin, while pink-nude can give your complexion a rosy boost in winter.
Now that you've picked your perfect color, it's time to think about the kind of formula you'd like. For a juicy, Victoria's Secret-style pout, your best bet is a gloss. A classic choice is a lipstick, as you'll find it gives you a more natural look while still delivering shine and a pop of color (even better, a slick of clear gloss over the top will give you the same effect as a gloss).
There are so many different finishes on the market now that you'll be able to find one to suit any occasion and beauty look. A matte finish will deliver a fashion-forward, Kylie Jenner-esque look, while a high shine or metallic finish is the perfect addition to any night out look. A creamy, satin finish is a happy half-way point that will suit any beauty look and a true classic.
