Find Your Signature Lip Color Based on Your Makeup PersonalityAugust 29, 2018
Much like how you present yourself through the way you dress, makeup has the ability to showcase your inner values and personality traits on the outside. Your choice of a bold brow, neutral lip or space baby highlight says a lot about you as a person — and we love how makeup holds that power. A signature lip color is no different, whether you reach for a classic red lipstick almost every day or a dusty rose reflects on your makeup personality choices. Ahead, find five signature lip shades and their corresponding traits.
A bold makeup guru should be unafraid of any shade as their signature lip color, that’s why we think bright corals are perfect for makeup risk-takers. The Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in Tilt is a gorgeous fiery pinky-orange for just this, and we also love the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Life’s A Beach if you’re looking for an even brighter-toned pout.
If you prefer the simpler makeup choices in life, you’re going to be a nude lipstick lover. It’s quick, easy and still makes you feel like you’re enhancing your pout without garnering too much attention. We love the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993 for a classic light brown finish or something a bit bolder like the Boho Magnetic Lip Color by Nudestix if you’re looking for a more cool-toned cast.
As our beauty Instagram feeds have taught us well, a good selfie is nothing without a pretty pink lip. A signature pink lip color has us feeling brighter and better than usual, and a lippie like the Lancôme Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick in Pink Power does the trick. For more of a dusty-pink vibe, swipe on a few coats of the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina and get ready to snap away.
For those makeup babes out there who love a little darkness every so often or every day, a plummy vampy lip will be your new signature lip color (if it isn’t already). Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Beetroot will seriously change your makeup game with a few gorgeous coats. If you’re just learning to channel your dark side, we love the Milk Makeup Lip and Cheek Stick in Quickie for a slightly subtler finish.
Red lipstick is certainly not a makeup product for the faint-hearted, and any beauty guru who appreciates the iconography of the color should make this cardinal chroma their go-to pick. For a creamy red lip, the Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge 151 Lipstick will become your new holy grail, and if you prefer something a little more structured and matte, the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red will have your back.
