Choosing the right lipstick is actually a lot more tricky than some women like to believe.2

Like it or not, we cannot wear any color under the sun.

With endless amount of shades, it's hard to know which one will actually compliment your skin tone.

Ever see someone walking down the street and it just looks like they are trying to hard?

Ya well this could be you if you don't put time and a little effort into choosing the right lipstick.

1. Determine Your Skin Tone

This is the most important step of choosing the right lipstick.2

I know a lot of women have a love/hate relationship with the lipstick aisle as it can sometimes be a daunting task to find the right shade.

I am sure a lot of us already know our skin tone, but if not, take a look in the mirror.2

If you still aren't sure, go into a high end makeup shop like MAC and ask one of the workers.

The sales associates are trained and can steer you in the right direction, telling whether you're olive or peaches and cream, or somewhere in between.

2. For Fair Skin

Like me, a lot of us have a fair complexion and find it hard to wear certain colors.2

I suggest that wearing coral reds and pinks are the best with this skin shade.

If you wear a dark color with such a light skin shade, it is almost like they fight each other.

You want your lipstick to accentuate your face not throw it out of proportion.

3. For Medium or Olive Skin

If you have a bit of an olive complexion or tanned skin, try wearing colors that will make you look tanned and balance out the olive undertone.

I suggest darker pinks and cranberry shades, and also brick reds.

Red is a lot of times the hardest color to nail down, but with a darker skin tone you are able to wear a bit of a darker shade.
