The Perfect Pink Lipsticks for Your Skin ToneMay 29, 2020
Whether you want a bold lip or something more natural, you’ll find a perfect option in the pink family. While you really can’t go wrong, with such a wide variety of options, choosing a pink lipstick can sometimes be intimidating. A good place to start is to identify your undertones and then consider your skin tone. Here’s how, plus our top pink lipstick picks for every skin tone.
How to Find Your Undertones
Your skin undertone can help you find lip shades that enhance and complement your natural features. With this knowledge, you’ll be on your way to finding your pink lipstick soulmate.
One trick for determining your undertones is to look at the veins on the underside of your wrist. If your veins appear blue, for example, you likely have pink or cool-toned undertones, and if they appear green veins, it’s a sign of yellow or warm undertones. If your veins are a blue-green combo, you’re likely neutral. You can also identify your undertones by looking at your jewelry collection. If you gravitate towards silver jewelry, there’s a good chance you’re cool and if you’re a gold jewelry fan, you might have warm undertones.

Fair skin tones look stunning with a bright, red-pink lip with cool undertones like this one. In addition to the flattering shade, the matte formula provides 16-hour, comfortable wear.
For a natural pink that works on fair skin with any undertone, go for a subdued rosy shade like Beige Underground. The velvet texture is perfect for when you’re looking for a finish that’s in between a matte and cream.
It’s a no-brainer for medium skin tones to be paired with a warm, orange-pink shade like Day Club. The striking coral is perfect for summer.
Medium skin tones with cool undertones can be complemented by a deep pink lip. We like Desired, a rich raspberry pink that’s sophisticated yet more fun than a traditional red.
Deep skin tones shine when paired with a bright fuchsia shade like this one from IT Cosmetics. The cool-toned yet bright lipstick is also infused with hyaluronic acid and aloe for a soothing, comfortable finish.
A tinted mauve-hued lipstick such as PlumPink blends with and enhances your natural lip color. The L’Absolu Mademoiselle formula is shimmer-infused for added dimension.
