Best Fit Skin Tone Matches

When it comes to picking things like lip colors, a big deciding factor is how good it'll look against the skin. Depending on what and where you're buying lip products from, you may not always be able to test them out and try them on before leaving the store. If you're like me and you buy things on a whim and rush home to open them and try them out, you'll end up sad and with another lip product thrown in the back of a drawer because it doesn't look good on you.

Wearing "Kourt K" by Kylie Cosmetics
Disclaimer, this post is not to say that you can't rock whatever color you want. It's all about what you like and what you feel comfortable in. Do you, girl. Rock whatever you wear, with pride. 

When you have darker skin, in terms of lip colors, the lighter colors don't always look that great on us. Shades that have more of a darker hint to it work better for us. I'm a lover of anything pink and nothing annoys me more than buying lip colors and they're too "pink" on me. When you have deeper skin, typically darker lip colors look the best on us. Like a red that has a tint of brown in it, or a darker berry color. My favorite is  Kourt K by Kylie Cosmetics.

With medium skin, you're able to have a bit more variety when it comes to lip choices. Some dark colors are too dark, but there are a lot of choices that look great. I think the best matches for medium skin are the pinky red toned colors. The basic colors without much deviation look really nice. That staple red that someone with darker skin would have to get as a deep red, someone with medium skin could just do a plain red. This could be like Ruby Woo from Mac.

My fair skinned ladies shine the best with colors that are lighter. Colors that are lighter variations
work well. Lighter pink and peachy shades show up really good on lighter skin tones. Also, nice nude brown shades look really nice. This can be in either gloss or matte, it all depends on personal preference and style, but either one looks nice and shows up well. You don't want something too harsh to drown you out. The first thing that comes to mind is Naked by Anastasia Beverly Hills.
