“I have too many lipsticks,” said no woman ever. While you may have a variety of shades to suit your moods, the must-have shades in your lipstick collection should include a fiery red lipstick, a classic nude lipstick and at least one pretty pink lipstick.
While it is an easy, wear-everyday kind of shade, picking the right pink lipstick for you can be somewhat tricky. It all comes down to your skin tone (or shade of your skin: light, medium, deep) and your undertones—cool, warm and neutral.
To determine your undertone, look at your veins. If your veins look blue, cool-toned pink lipsticks will work best for you, where as if your veins look green, opt for a warm toned pink lipstick. If your veins show up as blue-green, you’re neutral toned and can pick from both cool and warm tone pink lipsticks. When it comes to shades, those with light skin tones can opt for light and baby pinks, as well as dusty rose shades for more impact. Those with medium skin tones can choose from peach pinks, coral pinks and strawberry pink. Deeper skin tones will look best in rich pinks.
We’ve rounded up a few pink lipstick shades that would look good on Asian skin tones. Bonus: you can even wear them on your cheeks as a blush for a monochrome makeup look.
