Light, soft shades of coral with predominantly cool undertones flatter most fair complexions. For light skin with cool undertones, look for a cool pink-based coral, like Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Streak. If you have warm undertones, you can use a product slightly more orange in it. Try L’Oréal Colour Caresse by Colour Riche in Sunset Angora.
Medium skin tones can wear more vibrant shades in fruity colors like peach, apricot and tangerine. If you have cool undertones, try a peachy coral like Maybelline Color Whisper by Color Sensational in Coral Ambition. Those with warm undertones should choose a warmer orange shade like Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick in Rogue.
Women with deep complexions get to go as bright as they like and as orange as they please. Dark skin with warm undertones looks great in true orange-based corals, like Giorgio Armani Rogue Ecstasy in Tangerine. For cool undertones, shades with slightly more red are the best bets. Try Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté in Orange Shiver.
