How to Find the Best Pink Lipstick for Your Skin Tone How to Find the Best Pink Lipstick for Your Skin Tone How to Find the Best Pink Lipstick for Your Skin Tone

In a world where fashion and beauty trends are forever coming back into style, it’s no wonder then that pink lipstick is taking back it’s reign as the must-have look of the season. When worn on the lips, pink can look natural and youthful. Plus, with so many shades within the pink family, there’s a pretty match out there for every skin tone—and for every occasion from work to date night.

Since pink lipstick comes in an array of intensities and undertones, it’s important to think about the end look you want to achieve as well as your skin tone. Allow us to break it down for you.

Bright Pink Lipstick vs. Light Pink Lipstick

Point blank: There’s something timeless about pink lipstick. And just like classic red, pink will always have a place in our makeup bags. Maybe it’s because it’s pretty effortless to layer on or maybe it’s because it adds just enough definition without being overdone—whatever the reason, pink lipstick should be one of your go-tos. To help you narrow down your options, ask yourself a simple question: Do you prefer bright or light looks? Here’s what you can expect with each:

If you prefer bright pink…

Are you all about bold lips that can’t be ignored? Well, then a bright pink hue is the perfect choice for you! With just a swipe of a vibrant pink shade, chances are it can help you feel more confident—and there’s no denying you’ll look it, too!

L'Oréal Paris product picks: Try the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in Fearless Fuchsia or L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Miss Magenta.

If you prefer light pink…

Want to help give your lips a bit more definition without wearing a nude shade? Turn your attention to light pink lipstick.

L'Oréal Paris product picks: Try the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Ballerina Shoes or L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive La Vie En Rose in Julianne’s Pink.

The Perfect Pink Lipstick for Your Skin Tone

Now that you know how intense you want your soon-to-be-fave lipstick to be, it’s time to determine the undertones and coverage necessary to finalize your perfect pink pout. So, when making your decision, keep these tonal tips in mind.

How to find a pink lipstick for fair skin tones: If you see a lipstick you love, go ahead and try it! But if you want to get in on a little lippy secret when it comes to gorgeous color, know that sheer pink shades look especially natural on fair skin tones.

How to find a pink lipstick for medium skin tones: Heads up: You are seriously lucky—you can rock just about any pink color and any type of coverage. The only lipsticks you’ll want to consider steering clear of are those with blue undertones, because they can wash you out a bit.

How to find a pink lipstick for deep skin tones: The darker your skin, the brighter you can go when it comes to pink lipstick. If you really want to make your pout stand out, make sure to pick a high coverage formula. So pretty!

How to Use a Pink Lip Palette

Haven’t quite made up your mind yet in terms of what shade of pink to try? Totally understandable! With so many shades and coverage options out there, it can be tough to make a choice and select just one shade of pink lipstick. That’s where lip palettes come in. Try the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Pink. This palette comes with eight shades in three different finishes (cream, matte, and highlight), so you can mix and match to your heart’s content. Whether you decide to use a single color, create a customized hue by mixing a few together, or do an ombré lip, we have a feeling you’ll look positively gorgeous!
