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 its 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 so you can have pink lipstick be the star of your next makeup look!
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 it could be 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? If you aren’t sure, here’s how to pick:
Choose a bright pink…if you love bold lip colors that can’t be ignored. A bright pink hue is the perfect choice for you since just a swipe of a vibrant pink shade can help you feel more confident—and there’s no denying you’ll look it too!
Product pick: L'Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Represent, L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in Fearless Fuchsia, or L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Laminated Fuchsia
Choose a light pink lipstick…if you want to give your lips a bit more definition without wearing a nude shade. A light pink lipstick won’t push you too far outside of your comfort zone but it will add a slight pop of color to your pout.
Product pick: L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Create, L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Ballerina Shoes, or L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Matte Lipstick in Matte-Caron
Now that you know how intense you want your soon-to-be-fave lipstick to be, it’s time to determine the best shade and finish for your skin tone in order to finalize your perfect pink pout. So, when making your decision, keep these tonal tips in mind.
If you see a lipstick you love, don’t let your skin tone make you shy away—go ahead and try it! But if you want to get in on a little lippie secret about shades of pink and pale skin, know that sheer pink shades look especially natural on fair skin tones. Give the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Sparkling Rose a try!
Heads up: You are seriously lucky—you can rock just about any pink color with almost any finish. The only lipsticks you’ll want to consider steering clear of are those with blue undertones because they can wash you out a bit. Need somewhere to start? Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Lipcolour in Pink Flamingo.
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 an opaque formula. So pretty! Coat your lips in the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in Wild Rose.
Haven’t quite made up your mind yet in terms of what shade of pink to try? Totally understandable! With so many shades and finish 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. You can use a single color, create a customized hue by mixing a few together, or create an ombré lip. Regardless, we have a feeling you’ll look positively gorgeous!
Editor’s tip: Can’t find a palette with shades you love? Use a small beauty spatula to remove lipstick from the bottom of tubes that are almost empty, then place the product in a small pill case with multiple compartments. You won’t waste any product and you’ll have a DIY lip palette with all of your favorite shades! For an in-depth tutorial, here’s How to Curate the Perfect Lip Palette.
