If you thought the era of brown lipstick is over, well take a look at red carpet events and your favourite celebrity’s social media account and you will realise how wrong you were. Brown lipsticks are all the rage and the best part is that the colour flatters every skin tone.
However, working a brown lipstick can be a little tricky; you need to pick a shade that complements your skin tone well or it can end up making you look morbid *yikes*. But fret not, ‘cause we’re here to make sure you never pick the wrong shade of brown. Ever. Below, we’ve compiled a list of brown lipstick shades you can wear depending on your skin tone.
Fair skin tone
lways consider your undertone while picking a lipstick shade. If you have cool undertones, opt for blue or purple based brown lip shades. Those with warm undertones can try brown lipsticks that have a pink or red base. We suggest the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color - Mauve-It for fair skin with cool undertones and the Lakmé Enrich Lip Crayon - Cinnamon Brown for warm undertones.
Medium skin tone
Women with medium skin tones can play with a lot of different shades as a wide range of brown lip shades suit them. Avoid rustic shades as this can bring out the redness in your skin. Instead, experiment with dark and bold colours to intensify your overall look. We suggest the Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color - 306 Nutty Chocolate for those with medium skin tone.
Deep skin tone
Warm shades of tan and coffee work very well for those with deep skin tone. Again, you can experiment with a lot of stunning shades of brown as there is no dearth of brown lippies for your skin tone. Our favourite is the Lakmé Forever Matte Liquid Lip Colour - Nude Twist.
