    How to Choose Your Lip and Cheek Shade Based on Your Skin's Natural Undertone


    Ever see someone rocking a lipstick shade and wondered if you could pull it off too? Or worse, you
    do try it and it just doesn’t look the same on you?Samesies. Before you tell yourself you can’t play with fun lip colors, it’s important to know that 1) youcan and 2) it’s all about knowing what shades will complement your skin tone! Different shades + different skin tones = different results, and we’re here to help you find out what category you fall into! 

    How to Choose Your Lip and Cheek Shade Based on Your Skin's Natural Undertone

    Warm Undertones

    If you have warm skin, you have more yellow or golden undertones. Corresponding warm colors in a richer shade than your skin like terracotta brown (you don’t want the color to get lost!) complement your skin the most, but that’s not all! Pops of orange and red look stunning on you, enhancing your skin’s bronzed look.

    What your skin tone is like:

    • Golden, yellow, or an olive hue
    • Gets a bronze glow or tan easily in the summer

    What shades you rock:

    Pro Tip:  If you haven’t tried these shades and want to see them in action, you’re in luck! Nydia has a Dusty Rose tutorial to show you different ways to wear this shade, Niara shares 3 must-try ways to effortlessly rock Riveting Red, and Pauline shares everything you need to know about Coral in this tutorial!

    Cool Undertones

    Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? Why, it’s cool undertones, of course! If you have cool undertones, you have lighter skin than others, which is a great canvas for a standout color! Try either a lipstick that has cool undertones like purples, cherries, and berry colors—the contrast will make you stand out amongst the crowd. For an everyday shade, stick with pinks to complement your everyday look and skin.

    What your skin tone is like:

    • Lighter/fairer skin
    • Red or pink hues
    • Burns/turns red rather than tan in the summer

    What shades you rock:

    What your skin tone is like:

    • A mixture of warm and cool tones
    • Can either turn red in the summer or get a bit of a glow
