diversity, inclusion nude makeup

I am a sucker for an understated makeup look. The best part of a nude look is a sultry and alluring nude lip. Nude is not just one color because nude is different for every skin tones and it’s so important that this conversation is on the forefront of the beauty conversation.

I’ve been doing some nude lip research and I have found a few new colors to add to my beauty repertoire.
