Nudes come in different shades and so do skin tones. The nude lip has been a trend that has been going on for about 3 years now. However, picking the right shade of nude lipstick has been a difficult task for most people since different people have different undertones to their skin tone. A woman usually find it hard to determine whether the shade they picked is too deep, too light or maybe too matchy to her skin that it almost looks like her lips are nonexistent.
