Perfect Shades According To Your Skin Tone

Fair Skin

If you have fair or pale skin, opt for light shades such as beige, peach, mauve, pink, or coral. These colors are less likely to overpower your complexion and will give your lips a soft glow. Don’t be afraid to experiment and use different shades to create the perfect look. 

Medium Skin

Try shades such as soft rose, dusty pink, bright red, or berry tones for medium or olive skin. Experiment with different shades and find the one best suits your unique style! For an extra pop of color, you can combine two shades or use a lip liner to create a more defined look. 

Tanned Skin 

Look for lipsticks in neutrals, peaches, and warm pink shades for a tanned skin tone. These lipsticks will help accentuate your tan without overpowering it. Also, try a dark brown or burnt orange for some extra drama. Makeup artists say these are the best shades to make your tan stand out. 

Darker Skin

Dark skin may benefit from rich colors like deep burgundy, chocolate brown, or dark plum. Try deep burgundy to make your lips pop, or experiment with chocolate brown and dark plum for a more daring look. Experimenting can be fun with these lipstick tips; explore all these tones and go for it!
