Perfect Pair - Match Your Lipstick Shade To Your Outfits

Maybelline Lipstick Shades

Coordinating your lipstick shades with your outfit can be a lot of fun, but might also seem daunting for some. Finding the best lipstick colour that complements your dress can tie the whole look together.

Here are some quick and foolproof ways to style different outfits with different shades of lipsticks.

1. White

Neutrals like whites, or pale nudes, ivory, etc. are some of the easiest to colours to work with when thinking of matching your lipstick shades. Go for a soft, cherubic look with a pale pink lipstick or go dark and vixen with the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Transformer. Welcome springtime with a bright peach lipstick shade or step into summer with a bright orange, the choices for finding the best lipstick colour for your white outfit are endless.

2. Yellow

When wearing a bright and happy colour like yellow, look for equally bold and bright lipstick shades like reds and pinks. Red and yellow is a classic combination that will never fail you. Pink lipstick shades add a cheerful and youthful touch to your makeup while a red lip will make look chic and mature. Discover a new take on pinks and find the perfect pink lipstick shade from the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick X Pinks Edition. Different shades of lipstick in the red and pink family such as magenta, maroon, fuchsia, etc. will brighten up your yellow dress and complete the look.

3. Blue

Orange and blue are complementary colours on the colour wheel, making them a perfect match! The best lipstick colour for a blue ensemble is orange, or lipstick shades that have hints of orange in it. The two contrasting colours will balance each other out and make you stand out. For example, try the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick in the shade Craving Coral for a rich and pigmented soft matte pop of orange on your lips. If you want to play safe, use a flirty pink lipstick shade that looks universally flattering on all skin tones.

4. Green

Let your green dress do all the talking by keeping your makeup soft and nude. Try Clay Crush, a flattering warm nude lipstick shade from the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick range. Haven’t found your perfect nude yet? Go the safe route with a bold, cool toned-red lip like the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Ambitious.

5. Red

Thinking red on red is a bit much? Think again. A staple combination on the red carpet, a bold red lip with a red outfit will elevate your look, making you look effortlessly stylish. Keep the rest of your makeup subtle and let your lips steal the show. If matching your lipstick shade to your dress is not your thing, opt for a soft nude lipstick like the shade Seductress from the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid collection to keep all the attention on the dress. Choose a nude lipstick that is a shade or two darker than your skin tone to prevent looking washed out.

6. Black

The best lipstick colour for a black outfit? Any lipstick shade you have! A staple in everybody’s wardrobe, black is an easy colour to pair different shades of lipstick with.
