How To Find The Perfect Pink Lipstick For Your Skin Tone

  • Pink lipstick — the most basic of all lip colors, yet often the hardest to select. One wrong move and we’re left looking more like we just had a cherry popsicle than the “Pretty in Pink” vibe we were going for. To help all of you in your quest for the perfect pink lipstick, on finding the most flattering pink lipstick based on your skin tone:

    Fair/Light Skin Tones: If you’ve ever used the word “pale” or “light” to describe your skin tone, look for pink lipsticks that are “either more crisp in

  • in pigment or soft and sheer.” When it comes to color, she recommends choosing a peachy pink shade — this will help neutralize your reddish undertones. Other options are petal pink shades with rose or lilac tints.

    Product Picks: Maybelline Color Sensation High Shine in Pink Freeze; Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy in Peony; Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Sunset Junction

  • Medium Skin Tones: Lucky ladies — if you have a medium, olive-based skin tone, you can pull off most shades of pink. “[Just] avoid [pink lipsticks] with blue undertones that tend to wash you out,” “Instead, opt for a luscious watermelon shade or a nude-ish pink for a more natural look.” Also, you can never go wrong with deep pinks that have hints of caramel and brown.

    Product Picks: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine in Pink Devotion; L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick in Ballerina Shoes; MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum-Yum

  • Deep Skin Tones: Bright and bold pinks perfectly complement darker skin tones. If you’re feeling daring, look for shades in the magenta family that stray towards fuchsia. For a more toned down look, try a lighter, purple-toned pink. Just avoid any ashy, neutral pinks, they’ll wash you out.

    Product Picks: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lévres Glossy Stain; Maybelline Superstay 14HR Lipstick in Fuschia Forever; NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage
