Find the Perfect Lip Color for Your Skin Tone

Find the Perfect Lip Color for Your Skin Tone

One important aspect of a well done make-up is a lipstick that matches and harmoniously embellishes with the skin tone of the person. We have seen many cases when the lipstick color was wrongly chosen so we want to show you what goes with what, so you know how to find the perfect lip color for your skin tone.

Generally, there are four main skin tone categories:
1. Fair or Light
For a light skin tone, bright colors are the best choice. Light pink, soft brown and everything pastel to beautiful beige are enhancing and complimenting the skin.
2. Medium
For medium skin tones, colors like passion red and lipsticks with shades of orange work best.
3. Olive
For an olive skin, deep pink and dark reddish colors are a win as long as you don’t go too dark with them as they can make you look like a sick person.
4. Dark or Deep
For a dark skin, deep shades like dark red, chocolate brown and dark pink are perfect. If you will pick shades that are much lighter than your skin, you will create an unnatural and plastic look you want to avoid!

Of course, in the end you want to look gorgeous, so it won’t be hard to remember these charts, play with the shades and stick to the one that looks the best on you!
