Updated: Jul 13, 2021

Selecting a perfect lipshade matching to your skintone could sometimes be an overwhelming task. Think about makeup & lipstick would be the first thing that comes to mind. From college goers to Best makeup artists in India or World, everybody swears by perfect lip-shade for getting that gorgeous look. Adding a right shade to your lips can bring a huge difference to your entire look. A poorly chosen shade of lipstick can easily destroy your whole look. That’s why it’s important to choose a color that suits you!

I will suggest you 5 tips which will help you choose the right lipstick shade to match your skin tone, outfit, and the occasion -

A. Based on skin-tone : The very first step in choosing the right lipstick color is determining what skin tone you have. There are 5 main types of skin complexion: fair, light, medium, tan, and deep.

Fair/Light: pink, coral, peach, nude and dusty reds

Medium: Rose, berry, cherry red, and mauve lipstick.

Tan: Coral, deep pink, bright red

Deep: Brown and purple shades like plum, caramel, wine, and blue-based reds

B. Based on skin undertone : There are 3 types of undertones: cool, warm and neutral.

  • Cool:

  1. fair or light skin — soft mocha or nude;

  2. medium skin — pink or cranberry shades;

  3. tan or deep skin — ruby or wine shades.

  • Warm:

  1. fair or light skin — pale pink or peachy nudes;

  2. medium, tan or deep skin — copper or bronze shades.

  • Neutral: wide spectrum of colors, both cool and warm tones

C. Size of the lips : This trick can absolutely help you up in deciding some of those great shades and formula of the lipstick that you can completely rock in!

  • Thin lips: Try applying clear glosses and creamy lipsticks, Since these have this amazing property of grabbing light, which in return makes your lips look fuller. Avoid dark or flashy colors!

  • Plump lips: Try to avoid lipstick shades that are very light and glossy or have glittery textures, since this could lead in making those already fuller lips look even more plumper than required. Go with some dark shades to make those plumper lips look subtle

D. Eye color : Yes you read it right! Eye color is another surprising element in deciding your lip shade.

  • Brown eyes: bright reds, browns, and light pinks.

  • Blue eyes: different shades of cherry or scarlet colors.

  • Green eyes: terracotta, pinks.

  • Grey eyes: nudes and plum colors.

E. Teeth color : You might wanna bang your head somewhere after reading this , but relax & Yes! Teeth color plays a very crucial role in helping you up in choosing that perfect lip stain for yourself.

  • White teeth: Congratulations! You can choose whatever color you like.

  • Yellow teeth: Rose, slightly orange, light red colors. Avoid purples, browns, and bright scarlet, red shades.
