Lipstick is the first thing that comes to mind when we think about makeup.
The lipstick shades that usually look great with fair or light skin are light pink, coral, peach, nude, and dusty red colors. Rose, berry, cherry red, and mauve lipstick colors look gorgeous on girls with a medium skin tone.
There are so many different lipstick undertones, consistencies, and finishes that make a trip to the makeup aisle seem more like a mission than a fun jaunt.
If you have a pink, red, or bluish hue to your skin, you are cool toned. You can tell your undertone is cool if the veins in your wrist look blue, silver jewelry complements your skin, or you tend to burn before you tan.
The best lipsticks for cool undertones have blue- or purple-shaded undertones. So when you go to choose a red lip, steer away from orangey shades and veer more toward deep bluish-reds.
If you have a yellow, golden, or olive hue to your skin, you likely have a warm undertone. The best lipsticks for warm undertones are lip colors in warm shades.
The main thing to remember is that, ultimately, your lip color is up to you. Now that you know how to choose the perfect lipstick shade for you. If you feel like you look best in a coral but that doesn’t align with the rules, just do it.
