The Best Nude Lipsticks for WOC

For brown beauties, the  search for nude lipstick is a bit tricky. It’s about more than just a barely there flush of color. It’s about creating a cohesive and harmonious look that is natural and flattering. Many nude colors can leave us looking ashy or post mortem. Whether it’s a combination of liner and lipstick, lipstick and gloss, liner and gloss, or the use of one product, your perfect nude is based on your skin tone as opposed to the default term “nude”.
