Struggling to get that perfect pop of pink lipstick? Sami West, with signature brides, gave us some tips for your specific skin tone.
Fair/Light Skin Tones: If you have ever used the word 'pale' or 'light' to describe your skin tone, look for pink lipsticks that are 'either more crisp in pigment or soft and sheer.' When it comes to color, we recommend choosing a peachy pink shade; this will help neutralize your reddish undertones. Other options are petal pink shades with rose or lilac tints.

Medium Skin Tones: Lucky ladies; if you have a medium, olive-based
skin tone, you can pull off most shades of pink. Avoid pink lipsticks with blue undertones that tend to wash you out. Instead, opt for a luscious watermelon shade or a nude-ish pink for a more natural look. Also, you can never go wrong with deep pinks that have hints of caramel and brown.

Deep Skin Tones: Bright and bold pinks perfectly complement darker skin tones. If you`re feeling daring, look for shades in the magenta family that stray towards fuchsia. For a more toned down look, try a lighter, purpletoned pink. Just avoid any ashy, neutral pinks. They`ll wash you out.
