    Which Lip Color Should I Wear?

    When it comes to lips, it seems there are endless options! Maybe you have a big event coming up or are simply feeling the need to experiment with color and step away from your usual light gloss. Our quick lip color guide will help break down when to wear what, and how! Here are a few of the main colors available, our recommendations, and celebs in similar looks.


    Red is great for evenings and whenever you want to glamorize a look. Red looks fantastic with black and white outfits and is perfect for the holiday season. With this color in particular, you may want to spend a bit more money on a quality lipstick. You know it’s a cheap red if it quickly fades to pink once applied. A deep red goes well with more natural-toned makeup, and a bright red creates a fun ’60s vibe when paired with eyeliner. When going for red lipstick, don’t overdo your blush or you can look clownish. Have the rest of your makeup done before applying lip color to avoid any smearing.

    In some cases, bright pink lips are more of a unique statement than even red. What’s fun about pink is that it can create both girly and edgy looks. A frosty pastel pink is perfect for occasions like weddings, showers and brunches. A bright Barbie pink or magenta is great for evening events, concerts and any time you’ll be taking fun pictures. Most shades of pink look cute and sassy, but the darker ones can be classic chic. Pink lips look great with any color outfit except reds, oranges and similar shades that clash. It’s a look that especially pops when paired with greens, blues and silvers. When going for pink lips, use a close shade of blush, but be careful not to overdo it.

    Coral is the perfect color for most occasions and goes well with almost every outfit. It’s just bright enough to be fun and just girly enough to be feminine. Consider wearing coral if you want a pop of color in the daytime. It also looks great with almost every skin tone, but tends to really shine on very fair and very tan skin. Coral matches outfits of all colors, but really works best with bright colors. A frosty shade can go on by itself or over another color that’s accidentally too bright.

    If you’re not used to wearing color on your lips, then a neutral, natural shade is a great place to start! It works well with any or no makeup, and looks awesome with braces and for everyday looks and events. It’s perfect for a morning church service or an early class, for example. If you wear lots of bronzer or accidentally put on way too much eye makeup, a calm lip color will tone it back down. If you’re wearing an outfit and it seems like all other shades of lipstick are clashing, go with something close to the tone of your actual lips. To add a little glam to an understated look, wear a neutral with a moisturizing gloss or shine. A soft lip liner under the lipstick will make sure it lasts all day.

    This deep, bold choice is a trend that comes in and out every few years, and right now it’s very in! Wine lip color looks great on women with cool undertones to their skin. It’s an elegant evening color and is often accompanied by dramatic eye makeup. It looks best with black, white and dark jewel-tone outfits. With dark lips, feel free to try a funky hairstyle or updo. Make sure that you don’t overdo it with blush. Apply some powder to the area around your lips before applying to ensure it stays in place. It will also stain clothes, so get dressed and brush your teeth before putting it on.
