Choosing a Lipstick Color and Help with Lipstick Application

Light Skin Tones

Consider these colors:

  1. Light-brown beiges with pink or orange undertones.
  2. Medium brown with pink undertones or beige lipsticks with a pink undertone.
  3. Browns like Mocha browns, and darker brown/pink lipsticks for an evening lip look.
  4. Deep plum reds like soft berry and wine reds with a blue undertone.
  5. Pinks such as light shiny pink lipsticks with blue undertones work well.
  6. Pink with a slight gold shimmer also enhances this skin tone very nicely.
  7. Be careful of these colors:
  8. Extra pale browns with yellow undertones make fair skin look washed out.
  9. Reds with an orange undertone.
  10. Hot pink lipstick as it overpowers fair skins

Medium Skin Tones

Consider these colors:

  1. Deep reds and the blue-reds brighten medium skin with a yellow undertone.
  2. Brown and warm reds will soften and look warm on medium skin.
  3. Rich caramel shades, medium brown with yellow or pink undertones, and creamy coffee color browns.
  4. Pinks like rich and deep pinks. Also pinks with brown undertones enhance and flatter medium skins very well.
  5. Sheers, creams, and mattes can also be tried using these shades of pink.
  6. Olive skin looks good with brownish reds, light browns and raisin shades of lipstick.
  7. Be careful of these colors: Browns that are very pale can make medium skins look ashy and washed out.

Yellowish Skin Tones

Consider these colors:

  1. Rich, deep brown reds and deep, dark berry shades.
  2. Browns with a red or auburn or mahogany undertone and rich browns that resemble coffee, toffee, and chocolate colors work well with this skin tone.
  3. Pinks like deep berries, rich rose, and soft to medium plums with strong yellow undertones are flattering to this skin tone.
  4. Be careful of these colors: Stay away from orange or reds and pink or red shades.
  5. Avoid pinks that are to cool and too light as these pinks can make complexion look draining.
