If red lipsticks make you look sexy and glamorous, pink lipstick shades bring out your fun and adventurous side. Whether it is a bright pop of neon pink or a subtle and everyday nude pink, different pink lipstick shades are finally having their moment. From your favourite celebrities on the red carpet to models on major international runways, everybody is rocking a pink pout. Just one swipe of this powerful colour instantly knocks years off your look and makes you look fresh-faced and young. But finding the best pink lipstick that complements your skin tone is not always as easy as you think!
If you have a fair or light skin tone, chances are that you also have a cool undertone. If you are looking for a soft everyday pink shade that you can wear to work every day, try a cool-toned nude pink that enhances the natural colour of your lips, giving you a “your lips but better look”. These pink lipstick shades add a soft flush of colour to your lips and do not make them look super overdone. If you have a pale or fair complexion with a warm undertone, the best pink lipstick shade for you would be something with yellow or peach undertones.
Heading out for a romantic date night with your partner and want to bring out your flirty side? Have fun with colour and add a bold pink lippy with cool undertones to brighten up your complexion and keep your makeup young and lively.

If you have medium, dusky, or olive skin tones, consider yourself extremely lucky. Most people who fall under the medium to olive skin tone category have warm or neutral undertones, which makes it very easy for them to carry off most, if not all, pink lipstick shades available. Even if your undertone leans more towards the cool side, you don’t really have to stress much about matching the hues to find the best pink lipstick shade. From vibrant blue-toned pinks to soft orange-pink lipstick shades, people with medium skin tones and rock it all! That being said, the best pink lipstick for those with a medium, dusky, or olive skin tone is one with hints of brown or caramels and blue. For an everyday pink lipstick shade, look for a warm undertone and flaunt deep pinks with blue and purple undertones if you want your lips to really stand out.

If you have deep and dark brown skin tones, don’t be afraid of wearing bright and bold colours. Statement shades like fuchsia and hot pinks contrast beautifully with your brown complexion and are a match made in heaven. Opt for a delicate warm-toned pink lipstick shade for an everyday look and a deep berry or purple-pink hue for some nighttime glam. Berry and rose pink shades look absolutely radiant on dark skin tones are the perfect colours for creating show-stopping looks. If such vibrant pink lipstick shades are not your cup of tea, look for a mauve-hued lipstick that will coat your pout with just the right amount of colour without creating a harsh contrast against your deep complexion.
