If you're trying to find the perfect back-to-school lip color but don't know where to start, we've got you covered. Depending on your skin tone, some shades may look great while others may look a bit jarring. Here's a quick guide to choosing the right lipstick for you:
If you're one of those people who is pale year-round, chances are you have a fair skin tone. You don't want to do anything to overpower your delicate skin, so stick to lipstick shades that are close to your natural lip color and have an orange base, like peach and pink.
If your skin has an olive base, you're a lucky girl! Almost any color looks great with this skin tone. Play up the contrast by using red lipstick with blue undertones. For daytime, try a coral or shimmery bronze hue.
When it comes to medium or bronze skin tones, copper shades are always a fabulous complement to your naturally warm complexion. Nude hues are a go-to, but you can also branch out into fuchsia, orange and brick red.
Purples, pinks and berries look great on girls with dark skin tones. If you want to wear red lipstick, make sure that it's a clear red. Warm peach lip colors are also a good option for the daytime.
