How to find the best lipstick for your skin color when you’re at the store and confused as hell

How do you find the best lipstick for your skin color, because you’re at the store right now and this shit is confusing? There a few simple tricks.

For those of us who aren’t happy with a drawer full of wasted money, here’s what to do. First off, you should figure out if you have a warm or cool skin tone, and once you have that information, let’s go.

Cool skin tones

Blue-toned lipsticks (think of classic pin-up-y red lipsticks) look amazing on cool toned faces.

Warm skin tones

Peachy, orange-y colors look awesome on warm tones.

Medium skin tones

If you have a mixture of yellow and red undertones, you might look great in a brown-mauve shade.

Fair skin tones

If you’re pale and don’t want to go with a bold lip, try natural-looking pink colors.

Olive skin tones

Your skin tone is pretty neutral, which means you can pull off pretty much anything, but give nudes, pinks, oranges, and reds a shot.

Darker skin tones 

Try deep plums, berries, reds, and honestly, just about any bright color you can imagine.
