The Perfect Pink Lipsticks for Your Skin ToneAugust 11, 2020
How to Find Your UndertonesOne trick for determining your undertones is to look at the veins on the underside of your wrist. If your veins appear blue, you likely have pink or cool undertones. If they appear green, 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, reddish-pink lip with cool undertones like this one from Maybelline. In addition to the flattering shade, the matte pink formula provides 16-hour, comfortable wear.
For a natural pale 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 pink lippie is perfect for summer.
Medium skin tones with cool undertones can be complemented by a dark 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, 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.
