The Best Lip Colors For You

Celebs like Taylor Swift and Gwen Stefani rock a mean bright lip, but when it comes to real life situations, it seems a bit harder to nail down the right shade for your complexion. That's where we come in. We've got the scoop on the right lip color for you.

Fair to Light Skin Tones

Those with fair skin, you're best bet is a pale pink or berry lip color.  You'll look great in Sorme's Heaven or Meltdown lip gloss shades, both lighter pinks that are great for daily wear.


If you're in the mood to go bold, a bright berry shade such as theBalm's Read My Lips Lip Gloss in Pow! is perfect.



But if you're craving red,  stick to those with blue undertones such as Sorme's Lip Color in Glamour Red.


Medium and Olive Skin Tones

Lip shades with beige or bronze undertones will look gorgeous on you. Try  Sorme's Icon Lip Gloss for  day to day wear.


For a bolder shade try theBalm Girls Lipstick in Foxxy Pout.



For a red that you can rock, you can easily pull off a more orangey red such as theBalm Girls Lipstick in Mia Moore.


Dark Skin Tones

You're in luck! You can easily pull of the boldest shades without a hitch.  But you will look the best in tangerines, blackberries or dark pink colors. Sorme's Lipstick in Golden Nugget is a great orange shade, while Amanda Kissmylips  from theBalm is the perfect dark shade for a glamorous look.


If you're looking for something brighter though, try Sorme's Empress Lip Gloss, a beautiful tropical pink.
