I was never much of a lip color kind of girl. I was really good at just utilizing my cocoa butter swivel stick and that’s it. Recently, I’ve decided to branch out and try wearing color on my lips, and I have to say that I love it.

This guide will be focused on everyday lip color choices. The trick to lip color is honestly finding what’s best for your skin tone. Yes, you may love a certain color, but I’m sorry, we can’t pull off everything. If you’ve ever tried a lipstick and hated how it looked on you, it’s most likely because you’ve tried the wrong shade.

Fair Skin

A light pink, light peach, beige, or golden brown shade would look best on fair skin.

Medium Skin

Try medium pinks, orangey peaches, reds, and apricot shades.

Olive Skin

This is the skin tone I have, and it’s definitely tricky. Dark Rose, Berry, Dark Red and Dark Apricot shades work best for this skin tone.

Dark Skin

Own your dark skin by wearing equally dark lip shades. Brownish reds, dark fuchsias, dark berries and golden beiges work best.

Does this help at all? I hope so.
