Choosing the right shade of pink lipstick for you
The bright bubblegum-pink color of Nikki’s new lipstick is gorgeous, but it won’t look great on everyone. When choosing pink lipstick, it’s important to choose the right shade based on your skin complexion.
Warm Skin Tones
If your skin tone is warm, then rich pinks like fuchsia will look great against your complexion, including Nikki’s Pink Fiday 4. In fact, the darker your skin tone, the more pigment you can wear, but stay away from light pale pinks, as it will make you look washed out (see the below Jennifer Lopez example). Those with olive skin tones are the luckiest, because almost any shade of pink will look great against your complexion.
Cool Skin Tones
Blue based pinks work best for those of you who have lighter complexions. Stay away from hot pink, as it can look too intense and overpowering against your skin. Try mauve, light and nude pink colors.
