To choose a lip color that is right for you, you have to consider the following:
1. The Look You Are Going After
Dark colors will make you look more mature while young colors will make you look younger. If you are doing a dark smoky eye, keep your lips nude. Similarly, if you are doing a nude eye, go with a bold lip color.
2. Natural Skin Tone
Pale skins look good in reds with blue undertones, light pinks, honey, mocha and pinkish beiges. Medium skins are flattered by rich reds with brown or yellow undertones, pinks with brown undertones, medium browns from mocha to caramel. Redheads should go for brownish undertones like raisiny reds, and deep peach shades. Deeper skin tones like brownish reds and plums, sheerest pinks, pink-glossed beige and virtually any shade of brown. Olive skins look good in brownish reds and berries, deepest pinks, chocolate, yellow-browns and plummy browns.
3. Lip Shape
Dark colors will make your lips look thinner and light colors will make them look fuller.
4. Try It Out!
Just because the color looks good in the tube or other people does not necessarily mean it would look on you. The best way to see if a lip color is right for you is simply to test it out for yourself.
