Every time we want an instant makeover, we turn to our eternal favourite—lipstick! But we all know that certain lipstick colours will flatter certain people more than others. If you’ve found yourself in a dilemma about choosing the right lip colour for yourself more than once (and we know you have!) our guide on choosing the right lipstick shade to match your skin tone might be of some help…

Crimsons and fuchsias for wheatish to medium skin

Pale shades of lilac, fuchsia or crimson are big this season and can be worn for a day and night look. If you're wheatish, fuchsia colours in plums or raspberry will work well. Use the Plum Perfect Lipstick from the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Addict range for that plum pout.


Pretty in pink for fair skin tones

Our favourite spring-summer lip colour has to be pink. Be it an electric pink or a baby pink, this colour works wonders for fair skin tones. We recommend the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Addict Lipstick in Pink Wink that will lend you the perfect pink pout.


Tinges of tangerine for dusky skin tones

If you happen to be dusky, a pretty orange or tangerine will look breathtaking on your lips as it’s sure to complement your skin tone beautifully. We recommend the Orange Edge shade from the Lakmé 9 to 5 Matte Lipcolour range to add that extra bit of glamour to your personality.
