6 Lip Shades That Work On Every Skin Tone

Smile goes a mile this saying is very true. A beautiful smile enhances your whole face making you more beautiful and approachable. This smile will be more intensified with the correct shade of lipstick gracing your face. Lipstick and make up have to always be chosen in par with your skin tone; if they clash with your skin tone your look can go from graceful to trashy in seconds.


Lipstick shade should always be chosen of our skin tone and the occasion we are applying it for. While buying a lipstick you should always go for a well-established and trusted brand as the lips are a delicate part of our body and a key feature in our look and we should not subject it to second grade products that may damage or harm it.

  1. Nude

As they say ‘little is always better’, this colour is the best representation of this phrase. When we go for a posh, polished yet natural look nude is the best colour option. It works for every skin tone whether dark or light it highlights the beautiful structure of our lips and making our smile more natural.

I would recommend L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick – Fairest Nude which has got great reviews and is quite affordable. The look of the product is also very pretty and the colour remains for a long time.

  1. Purple

It is a women’s world now and we are choosing to be bold and what is bolder than purple. This dark colour makes you look bolder and makes your lips more evident and your smile or pout more visible. Many cringe at the thought of purple, but they fail to realize that purple comes in various shades and each represents a different look like the dark ones for formal event whereas the light purple with a simple party with girlfriends.

For the darker shade I would recommend to you Golden Rose Velvet Matte Lipstick – 28 – Bossanova Purple

  1. Burgundy

This the colour to go to if you going for a Indian look, many prefer Maroon but I feel that theses colours are very much alike but burgundy stands out more on a dark skin and compliments a fair skin. If you’re going for an authentic Indian Bride look this is the colour to go to.

It works great with a western sophisticated and gothic look also.

I would recommend KA’OIR By Keyshia KAOIR “SEX” Burgundy Lipstick GOTHIC which is unique, long lasting and gives you a Matte finish.

  1. Red

This shade is my personal favourite; Red comes in many shades like the dark red which is very much like maroon whereas light red is like cherry. I prefer the cherry one; it is the perfect colour when you’re going for a sexy, bold and beautiful look. It makes your lips luscious and your smile more seductive, this doesn’t mean that it does not compliment posh attire. If you’re putting on a red lipstick no other makeup is necessary as your lips alone will make you the beauty of the day.

For the dark red shade I would recommend Maybelline New York ColorSensational Lipcolor, Red Revival 645

For the light red shade I would recommend L’oreal Colour Riche Lipcolour, British Red

  1. Pink

Pink is an evergreen colour, it works for every season, every attire and every skin tone. It makes your lips lush and this colour makes your smile more natural yet posh. Like all the colours pink also comes in several shades, I recommend light pink because is makes your pout more innocent and posh.

I would recommend Maybelline ColorSensational Lipcolor, Pink Please 025 which is creamier, long lasting and is made from pure pigments.

You can buy it at: https://www.amazon.com/Maybelline-ColorSensational-Lipcolor-Pink-Please/dp/B002L6R2LG


  1. Orange

You may feel like this is a joke, but I’m very much serious, this decade is of bright colours and from the past two years Orange is called the new Black as it is suitable for every occasion and matches every colour. It is stand out look and makes a bold statement. But this colour cannot be worn in a sophisticated look; it is more suitable for a girl’s night or a rocking party.

I would recommend Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor, Electric Orange which is bright and gorgeous shade of orange with a beautiful finish.

You can buy it at: https://www.amazon.com/Maybelline-New-York-Sensational-Lipcolor/dp/B00B0GQJO4/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1472019797&sr=1-1&keywords=orange+lipstick

As any beauty product, lipstick is a necessity because it enhances your natural beauty and with products available at such affordable prices everyone can become a beauty queen in no time.
