Another problem I had with a nude lippy is because I have a warmer skin tone I always felt a nude lipstick can make me look washed out.
However, I had heard good things about MACs Honey Love lipstick.
Here's a picture of me wearing the lipstick ...
But how do we find the perfect nude shade?
1) A way to find a good shade is to swatch the lipstick on your wrist just under your palm, the shade should be 1-2 shades darker then the shade of your palm.
2) Beige tones can tend to wash the skin tone a lot, try a peach or pink toned lipstick which can give a warmer and brighter hint of color.
3) Don't have a nude lipstick yet? SIMPLE ... Just use a concealer which is also a few shades darker than your skin color, before applying it apply a lip balm to smooth out the lips as a concealer can sometimes be drying (MAC's prep + prime is a favorite of mine.)
ON ANOTHER NOTE :
I did say in my previous post I would show you what I matched my beloved city bag with and here it is ...
