We'll say it over and over again: 'nude' is not a colour. But, it is a term widely (erroneously) used in the beauty industry to describe a neutral, skin-toned make-up shade. Lipsticks described as 'nude' often have a pink, peach, or beige hue but, of course, this is not an accurate representation for people with deeper skin tones.
At least campaigns like the artist-led Nude Against Nude, Cover FX's recent #NudeIsNotBeige, and continuous calls for change from YouTube vloggers like Jackie Aina have exposed the problem loudly and clearly.
Thankfully, more beauty brands have started stepping up to the plate. It's now easier than ever to find more inclusive options for everyone to achieve that once-elusive your-lips-but-better finish.
