Choosing the Shade of Lipstick for Your Skin Tone:

When choosing the correct shade of lipstick you must look at your complexion:

Fair Skin:

If you have fair skin deep, plum reds, berry, wine reds with a blue undertone look best. Browns -light medium browns or beige’s with pink undertones flatter fair skins. Pink undertone lipsticks compliment fair skin very nicely. However, stay away from those bright, loud pink lipsticks.

Olive/Yellow Skin:

Olive/Yellow skin should choose rich, deep brown reds and deep, dark berry shades. Stay away from orange/reds and pink/reds, they can bring out the yellow undertones in your skin. Try to avoid pink lipstick at all costs.

Medium Skin:

Medium skin should use rich, deep pinks, deep reds, rich caramel shades, medium brown with yellow or pink undertones, and creamy coffee colored brown lipsticks. Stay away from browns that are very pale. They can make medium skins look ashy and washed out.

Dark Skin:

Dark skin should try reds with blue undertones. Also, mahogany, deep plums, wine reds, almost any shade of brown, rich, dark, coffee browns flatter the skin. Avoid orange undertones in lipsticks.
