The Right Lipstick?
Posted on March 6th, 2011 at 12:53 pm by and


The right color of lipstick can be tough to pick out of a sea of colors at the drug store or any cosmetic store, but no worries because I’m going to tell you my top picks and which suit what skin tones. I’m also going to include what makeup look goes along with that specific color of lipstick.

Guerlain- Fabulous Rouge 531: This is such a gorgeous rich red color, it’s kind of a vampire red; that’s so sultry. I think this color would suit fair to olive skin tones and it would go perfect for the classic pin-up look. To achieve such a look you should choose a color that’s a shade lighter than your skin tone and place it on your lids, then pick a light brown or taupy color and place it on your crease, blending upwards. Use that same brown on your bottom lashes. Then place a black liquid liner along your lashes and create a bit of a wing.

Loreal- Mulberry 710: This is a rich plumy color that’s so on trend for this season. This color would suit medium to dark skin toned and it would really go well for a gold makeup look. I think this would suit the modern pin-up look, so go ahead and choose a gold eyeshadow and place it on your lids as well as bottom lashes. Then choose a brown shadow blending it into your crease. Then choose a highlight color that’s two shades lighter than you skin tone and place it on your brow bone and inner corners.

Loreal- Nude 862: This is a beige pink color that suits fair skin tones. This is the perfect color for everyday, because it’s not so strong. I think placing a very light pink color on your lids and a peachy/coppery color on your crease would go perfect with this lipstick. Also, choosing a peachy pigment and placing it over your shadow would be perfect. Don’t forget to also place that same color that’s on your crease, on your bottom lashes. For this look don’t choose a black liner, but go for a brown one, because black can look harsh.

Loreal- Fairest Nude 800: This is a true beige/peachy color that’s also perfect for everyday, but would suit olive skin tones. This would look great if paired with a shimmery light brown on the lids, blended upwards and a rich brown color on the outer corners; and create a V shape. Also place that same brown on your bottom lashes. Next, place a black liquid liner along your lash line, but don’t create a wing, because the V should be the focus.

Revlon- Pear Rosedew 407: This is a pinky peach color that looks amazing on dark skin tones. This lipstick would go perfectly with a peachy beige color for the lids and blended upwards. Then place a shimmery chocolate brown color and place it on your lash line and smoke it out a bit, remember to use a thin fluffy brush. Next, create a winged V long, using that same brown color. Next, place your highlight pinky color on your brown bone and inner corners.

Loreal- Really Rose 740: I think this plummy pink color would go well for all skin tones. It’s a universal color that would bring out your gorgeous features, no matter what your skin tone is. I think this look should be fairly natural, so just go with the same makeup mentioned for Guerlain- Fabulous Rouge (mentioned above).

Estee Lauder- Pink Parfait 161: This bubble gum pink color would suit mostly fair to olive skin tones. I would pair this color with a soft silver pigment on the lids and a charcoal gray color on the crease and outer corners, as well as on your bottom lashes. Choose a gray pencil liner for this look, and place it on your lower rims.

Estee Lauder- Beige 112: This brown beige color would go nicely with dark skin tones. I would suggest choosing a dark coppery/ burnt orange pigment for the lids and blended upwards. Next, pick a burgundy brown color for the crease and outer corners. Also place that same color on your lower lash line.

Estee Lauder Stay Rose 01: This pinky mauve color would also go well for all skin tones and would look great paired with a shimmery beige color on the lids and brow bone and a purple plum color on the crease and outer corners to create a V-like shape, also place that same color on your lower lash line.

Revlon Colorstay- Divine Port wine 340: This is such a beautiful deep brown red color that’s perfect for medium to dark skin tones and it would really emphasizes your features. I would suggest going lighter on the lids and just placing a color that’s two shades lighter than your skin color and also using a black liquid liner to create a winged eye look. Also, using your mascara for your bottom lashes to really bring out your gorgeous eyes.
