From hot pink to magenta, try a bright pink pout for an unexpected and modern alternative to red or wine that packs just as much punch.
Emma Stone, Keira Knightley, Pippa Middleton, and even Nicki Minaj have unlocked the power of pink, and now you can too, with our expert tips for finding — and pulling off — the perfect pink for your pout.
Playful and sweet, feminine and sexy, bold and modern, pink is far more versatile than a vamp oxblood or a classic red. Plus, a pink pout is easier to pull off: From light to dark, there are multiple shades to flatter every skin tone, so finding your perfect pink is easy.
As with any cosmetic choice, finding the right shade for you is the biggest part of the battle — it’s going to have to work with your skin tone — and your personality.
Start by matching your skin’s undertones to the lipstick’s undertones. The darker your complexion, the more pigmented your pink lipstick can go.
“When choosing the right pink for your skin tone, first determine if the undertones in your skin are warm (golden or olive) or cool (pink, beige),” celebrity makeup artist Tara Loren advises. “Those will be the types of colors you’ll want to stay with — cool to cool and warm to warm — to best compliment your complexion.”
