Have you ever wondered what lipsticks would work best for your skin tone? With hundreds of lip colors to pick from, knowing which ones to try can seem daunting. Today I am going to walk you through which shade ranges and undertones will best compliment your complexion.
Determine Your Skin Tone
How do you choose the lip color that will look best on you? An important part is choosing a shade that complements your skin tone. Need help identifying your skin tone? Check out my guide that walks you through finding your undertone.
Once you know your skin tone here are the rules, well sort of. Remember with makeup, you can break the rules!! You can wear any tone, but some will look a bit more flattering than others.
Skin with a warm undertone will look best with shades that have yellow and orange tones, while skin with a cool undertone will look better with shades that have blue and purple tones.
Lipstick By Complexion
Here are even more options based on your skin tone as well as your complexion. Don’t be afraid to step out of the box and try colors that you’ve never tried before!
CAUTION: Can any complexion wear the following? The answer is YES! Please don’t think for one minute that these can ONLY be worn by these complexions. If you are anything like me, you will try them all 😉
