Find the right lipstick shade for your skin tone
It may have taken a backseat for a brief spell, but one thing’s for sure right now – lipstick is back, in a big way. From bright pigments that pop, to deep berry hues and soft-looking nudes, lipstick is on almost every girl’s lip these days. And if it’s not on yours, it’s probably only because you haven’t found the right shade to suit you. Which, we will admit, can be a rather confusing task.
So to help you in your quest to find the perfect lipstick for your skin tone, we went directly to a brand that knows more than its fair share on the topic. Here, Revlon National Training Manager, Susan Vargas, shares her tips on choosing the best lipstick for you…
When it comes to skin tone, we’re all different and therefore some lip colours will ‘pop’ more on your lips than others. Here are some of my suggestions for different skin tones:
Best lip colours for fair-toned skin: I suggest opting for slightly apricot hues, or nudes, pinks, and light corals. Try: Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Cruise Collection, Front Row, or Silhouette.
Best lip colours for medium-toned skin: Natural colours will make your skin look washed out, so go for reds, magentas, pinks, rose, or berry and mauve hues. Try: Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Finale, Backstage, or Preview.
Best lip colours for darker-toned skin: Caramel or walnut-tinted shades are best for you for daytime wear, but switch to browns and purples for nighttime magic! Try: Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Socialite for the day, and Preview for the night.
So why choose Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick? Well, once you’ve found your perfect colour, you’re probably going to want it on your lips all day (and possibly all night, too), right? Not only does Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipsticks provide all-day wear with a velvety, suede finish, but they’re also formulated with shea butter, vitamin E and aloe to ensure that your lips stay moisturised, hydrated and totally kissable!
