how to choose lipstick based on skin tone

With summer approaching, now is the time to discover your statement lip. This summer’s trend is bright and bold, much like the summer we long for as Brits! Discovering a new bold lipstick on paper seems an easy task but finding a shade that flatters your complexion is much more difficult. You will often notice a bold colour that you love on someone else doesn’t quite fulfil the look you had envisioned in your head when you try it yourself. Not to worry though, help is at hand. 

Here are some top tips to help you choose a statement colour that will celebrate your skin tone. Read on!

Fair & Light Skin Tones

With light skin you want to find a shade that isn’t so pale that it will wash you out, but not so dark that it looks harsh and uncomplimentary. The right shade will accentuate your features – pinks and corals are a brilliant choice for light skin tones and there are so many different variations of these two. You are bound to find one that suits you. 

M.A.C’s Cremesheen Pretty Boy is the ultimate shade for fare skin women. Not only does it celebrate your beautiful complexion, it is also a great long lasting lipstick that won’t dry out your lips.

If you are looking for other ways to make your face glow, then skin rejuvenation could be for you. It boasts a multitude of benefits, including: wrinkle reduction, large pore reduction and sun damage repair. 


How to Choose the Right Colour For Your Skin Tone

Medium, Warm & Olive Skin Tones

Olive skin tones are one of the easiest to find a colour match, so this makes choosing your bold lipstick a straightforward decision (I’m not jealous at all!) Most shades will compliment your lips, meaning you can skip matching the palette to your skin tone and head straight to more advanced techniques. 

Matching your lipstick to your eye shadow and outfit is a great way to create a striking look that is sure to turn heads.

For the ladies with darker skin, bold shades are a great way to bring out your natural, radiant skin colour. Bold tones such as a plum, berry or even a classic rouge are the perfect accompaniment. Go bold or go home!

Follow these rules and I’m sure you will find the shade made for you. Once you find the shade that brings that extra slice of confidence, you’ll be stocking up. Remember not to get caught up in all the trends and what works for others, focus on what makes you feel fab.
