The Best Lipstick Colour For Your Skin Tone The Best Lipsticks For Your Skin Tone by BellaSugarUK 10/6/09 4 Reactions 2 Shares Print 0 1 1 0 0 If youre unsure which colour lipsticks complement your skin tone, we have the lowdown. Summer is a time to shelve your lip glosses and barely-there balms and break out those look-at-me lipsticks! Va va voom lips have never been more stylish, and a dramatic pout can do wonders to finish a look. Here are some guidelines on what lipstick colours look best with different skin tones — enjoy! Pale Skin, Red Lips What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 For those of you with fair, pale skin, a strong red lipstick with bluish (not orange) undertones suits you well. Try Nars Lipstick in Scarlet Empress (£19), or an iconic classic such as MAC Lipstick in Russian Red (£15). Also, here's some good news. Did you know that lipsticks or glosses with blue undertones make your teeth look whiter?

For a bold pink lipstick, try a rich and creamy shade like Barry M lipstick in Pretty Pink (£5) or a brick-colour like Burberry Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipstick in Brick Red no.19 (£23).

For a true rose, try Clinique Different Lipstick in Glazed Rose (£17) or No. 7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in Chic (£10) for something a bit darker.

Try a strong, orangey-red such as Lancome L'absolu Rouge Lipstick in Rouge Zènith (£23), or a deep wine colour like Clarins Rouge Eclat lipstick in Red Wine (£20) just as Taraji P. Henson was seen wearing here at the DGA Awards in January.

They look great in true, cherry reds and especially in nude-coloured lips. The possibility for nudes are endless these days, but we love Nars Sheer Lipstick in Cruising (£20) and Revlon Matte Lipstick in Nude Attitude (£8).

Try Stila Lip and Cheek Stain (£16) or cult product Benetint from Benefit Cosmetics (£25)! 6 / 6 0 1 1 0 0 Back to Homepage Comments Read More Taraji P.
