It’s never an easy task deciding what lipstick shade to get when we get to the lipstick store and we find ourselves confused and unsure of the lipstick color that would match. You probably end up buying a color that you fell in love with because it looked good on someone else or you just get one that you are yet to have in your vanity bag without considering the right lipstick shade for your skin tone.
In this post, I would be sharing some easy tips on how you can pick the right lipstick color for your skin tone and these are some really easy tips you can work with.
USING YOUR SKIN’S TONE
Fair skin tones
Fair skin colors look really good on colors such as blue- reds, light pinks and light peach.
Medium skin colors
For people with medium skin tone, their lipstick colors should be mild and deep. Color such as medium pink, apricot, orange-peach, and reds.

Olive skin tone
Olive skin tones go for even darker colors of lipstick. Colors that would go well with this skin color are dark rose, berry, apricot, and dark reds.
Colors that are best for dark skin tones are brownish reds, golden beige, and dark berries.
USING YOUR SKIN’S UNDERTONE
There are basically two inherent skin tones regardless of the skin color. There is the warm and the cool skin tone.
When choosing lipstick colors using your undertone, it is best to choose colors that are similar or in the same color family as your undertones.
To determine your undertone, go under the sun and examine the color under your skin and the color of your vein.
If you have a green undertone, then you are warm toned and if you have a blue undertone then you are definitely cool toned.
Some of you will find it hard determining your skin tone, then you are probably neutral toned and you have no worries with choosing a lipstick color.
If you have a cool skin tone
This means that you have a blueish undertone. You would look best in colors like pink, pale pink and beige for a lighter and simpler look and for a more bold look, you should go for pale brown, deep chocolate and deep raisin.
If you have a warm skin tone
This means that your undertone is greenish or yellowish. For such undertones, light coral, peachy nude, peachy pink and coral for a light or simple look but if you going for a fierce or bold look, nude brown, warm brown, and peachy brown is the way to go.
TRY OUT DIFFERENT LIPSTICK COLORS
So as much as there are guides (not rules!) to choosing the right lipstick color, you can totally try out other lipstick colors and see if you love the way they look on you. It’s also a good practice to study people with same skin color as you and look at lipstick colors that look good on them, they might just look good on you too.
These are some really easy and reliable ways to know what lipstick colors would look good on you.
