Lip Colour For Skin Tone

Lipstick is one of the make-up products that I find really completes a look. But, there's no denying that sometimes it can be tricky to know what colours really compliment you. Whilst you may look at tones on other girls and think "I could never pull that off!" it's nothing to be disheartened about; every skin tone has certain lipstick colours that they can flaunt flawlessly. 

It's generally taught that lighter skin tones are more suited to nudes that have slightly apricot or pink tones, whilst medium skin shades suit nudes that are warmer such as rose shades and mauve. With darker skin tones you can get away with the deeper colours on your lips but also with purple tones which is great for someone who loves a statement lip. These general 'rules' are all well and good but I personally find that the best way to discover what lipsticks look great on you is through trial and error, but it can be difficult to know where to start! I've created a guide showcasing some lipsticks that go beautifully with particular skin tones that you can use as a guideline when looking for your next lipstick purchase, or if you're a little unsure with what shades will suit your skin tone refer back to this to kickstart your lippy inspiration.
