Thats sort of a tricky question!
Nude lips have a different meaning to everyone and different shades of nudes work better on certain skin tones.
A nude lip to some can mean a flesh tone, “concealer” looking lips, to others a nude lip can mean a natural looking lip color like your own lip color but better such as a neutral pink.
If you are looking for a flesh tone nude lip keep in mind a nude for someone with very fair skin won’t look that good on someone with a deeper skin tone. One way to find out if “concealer” lips or a fleshtone nude will look good on your put some of your foundation over your lips, if you look like a lifeless zombie maybe flesh tone lips arent for you. In my opinion going for a nude lipstick a shade or two darker than your skintone is more flattering than a super pale lip. But hey if you like a super pale nude lip thats fine too, makeup has no rules! Do you boo
An easier way to wear a nude is to do a pinky nude or peachy nude, they are still skin colored but have a tint of pink or peach so it doesnt look as harsh.
Something like MAC Hue is more of a pinky nude
If youre more tan or a women of color something like Loreal Fairest Nude would work better, it’s a darker pinky nude

Usually foam cleansers help control oils because they are more drying which will help soak up any oils. I’d only recommend using a foam cleanser in the morning to control oils through out the day and using a more gentle face wash at night so you don’t dry out your skin. Also remember to still moisturize your skin! Even oily skin needs moisturizer it’s great for overall skin health :)
Some great oil controlling face cleansers are
Cetaphil Oil Control Foam Face Wash (sold at drugstores)
Neutrogena Rapid Clear Oil Control Foaming Face Wash (drugstore)
The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Wash
as well as CeraVe Foaming Cleanser (drugstore), Murad Clarifying Cleanser (one of my favs) & Origins Zero Oil Deep Pore cleanser )

For those with flakey, dry patches try using a flat top foundation brush to press and pat the foundation into the skin instead of swirling and buffing.
When you press and pat the foundation into your skin you’re less likely to aggravate any dry patches. When youre continuously going over dry patches while buffing and swirling the flakey, dry patches can look more noticeable. Patting will give a more airbrushed, smooth and poreless finish. This goes for using powder as well. Patting/pressing powder or foundation also gives more coverage. :)
