How to Wear a Nude Lip

A nude lip is the epitome of spring—it’s fresh, gives a perfect natural glow, and is universally flattering.

Nude lips reveal your flaky, rough lips more than any other color. Before wearing a full matte nude lip, make sure your lips are free of dead skin. Try exfoliating with a sugar scrub once a week.

After exfoliating, apply a gloss or moisturizer to add shine and softness. A hint of foundation is also great to smooth thin lines and give your lip one, complete color. We like Kaplan MD’s Perfect Pout Lip Mask + Lip Balm Duo ($23, sephora.com).

Most nudes work on our skin, but there are slight variations. If you’re lighter, opt for nudes with pink undertones, and if you’re darker try caramels and darker beiges. Still can’t decide on a shade? Create your custom look with Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo ($12, sephora.com).
