How To Find The Most Flattering Lipstick For Your Skin Tone

The rainbow’s worth of lipstick options out there these days can be intimidating — but they don’t have to be. At least not with this cheat sheet from Avon Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen! Don’t forget to experiment with textures too, there’s so much to choose from out there, from on trend matte finishes through to super glossy effects. Here’s how to find the perfect shade for your complexion.

If you have fair skin: Think pink or peach lips! Light complexions look beautiful in these fresh, romantic shades. Try matte lips with True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick in the gorgeous Pure Pink shade or Ultra Color Lipstick in sassy Wild Ginger.

If you have medium skin: Don’t fear deep shades — they look incredible against golden and olive complexions! Andersen suggests looking for lip colours in the wine, berry, or mauve families. Try Ultra Color Lipstick in Oxford Wine or Wine Berry. If you want to try something with a lighter coverage go for True Color Lip Balm in Plum Passion – that way you get the deep colour but you can build it up or down as much as you want.

If you have dark skin: Rich, bold colours are super flattering on women with deep skin tones. Andersen recommends opting for mahoganies, or burgundies, like Ultra Color Bold Lipstick in Bold Bordeaux. Another option is a bold lip gloss to give lips a brilliant shine finish, and Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss in Fiery Red is perfect for this skin tone.

For all skin tones: True red and neutral-pink are universally flattering colours. Consider them the “one-size-fits-all” of lipstick shades. “A classic red lip looks great on absolutely everyone,” says Andersen. Try Ultra Color Lipstick in Red 2000 or Proper Pink.
