The all important question “what lipstick colour suites me?” Well, your skin tone is a good indicator as to what lipstick colour is best for you. It doesn’t mean that you can’t use trendy colours just go for a right hue of the lipstick that is right for your tone. Red is a classic which will give a simple outfit a lift and it’s great to know which one you can wear.
If you are pale
What to try: It’s best to stay with peachy, pale pink or berry lipsticks with nude coloured gloss. Wear a pink a shade darker or lighter than your lips, and it will brighten your face and make your lips stand out. Try red lipstick with a cherry undertone for a glam look with major impact.
What to avoid : Dark chocolate and burgundy shades will be too much of a contrast to your kin type. If you want to try something darker go for something dark berry colour.
If you are olive
What to try: Medium and olive skin tones look great with warmer and slightly darker colours are great for you. Shades of coral, copper, beige and bronzy nudes are extremely flattering. Sheer coral for the day is perfect, try keep as close to your own lip colour as possible. Red with a coral undertone will make your lips pop.
What to avoid: Stay away from colours that are very light like baby pink or nude because they can make you look washed out.
If you are dark
What to try: Dark skin is really complemented by darkest, richest shades of mauve and wine colours. This will suit your skin tone and bring out the warm tone you have. Wear a deep red with an orange undertone to make your lips stand out and look gorgeous.
What to avoid: Light or frosted colours will be too much against your dark skin. This will emphasis your lips in the wrong way.
Always remember that if you are going to rock the red lips make sure the rest of your makeup is more subtle like a simple cat eye. Don’t hesitate to ask a makeup consultant in store to help you find the perfect lip colour. It is best to have day and night lipsticks so try out different shades that suite you.
