Ever thought about how to pick lipstick for your skin tone instead of just what happens to look good on the store shelves?

There are literally millions of different shades of lipsticks so I know it’s hard to pick and choose just a few!

I’m always drawn to certain shades but I’ve learned that no matter how much I like a certain color, it can totally wash me out or just be a bad match!

If you too would like to figure out how to pick the most flattering and foxy lip sticks for your kisser, keep on reading!

1. Lip Shape

The first tip I wanted to mention before moving on to choosing lipstick according to skin tone is to also consider the shape of your lips.

There are some general rules that apply to certain lip shapes like darker colors making lips look smaller and lighter and brighter colors making lips appear bigger.3

So take note of whether you want to accentuate or minimize your lip shape before you start narrowing down lip colors so it won’t be as overwhelming!2

2. Old Faithful

When you’re in the process of selecting lip colors by skin tone, remember that you’re probably not just going to have one lipstick for every occasion.

You’re going to want a lip color for every day, nights out, formal occasions and so on.

For the purpose of wearing a lip color for every day, choose a lipstick that’s a few steps up from your natural lip color.

Even if you carry a ton of lip products in your bag, having that one lipstick that you can always count on to look great is a must!

3. Underneath It All

You can’t learn how to pick lipstick for your skin tone if you don’t get to know your skin’s undertones!

I’m sure you’ve heard the terms cool or warm before if not in makeup then in the world of hair.

If you’re unsure of your skin’s undertones, the easiest way is to look at the color of your veins on your inner wrists in the light.

If they appear bluish, you’re cool and if they appear greenish, you’re warm!
