Fair skin tones

Dusky skin tones

Pink lipsticks look really pretty on anyone with fair skin. While picking the correct pink lipstick for fairer skin tones, always opt for sheer hues as they look especially natural on you. But avoid lipsticks that have a blue undertone, as they will wash out your skin tone.

Medium skin tones

If you have medium skin tone, then consider yourself really lucky, because you can rock just about any pink colour with almost any finish. Great, isn’t it?

The only thing that you may have to steer clear of is blue-toned shades as they could wash your complexion out a little bit.
