the best nude lipsticks

at every budget

If you're in search of a no-fuss way to look polished, or just growing tired of your beauty look, you should try shuffling a crisp nude lip into your routine. With one coat, the right shade balances your skin tone and enhances your lip's shape. For a refined look, prep your lips with a nude lipliner and then apply the color with a brush. For a more natural, cool look, tap the color to your lips with your fingertips and soften the edges.
