Curious if a color is a great basic lip color for you? Try it without makeup! No seriously, the perfect neutral (which for some of us is nude, pink rose, or even a dark fig) is the one that looks great on a naked face. Some women might need more color and the shade that works best without makeup will make everything brighter and look more lifted. So try out your existing lipstick color on a completely naked face and whenever you are shopping online just imagine which one looked the best on you and viola easy to pick a great basic shade without even trying it out.
