Pull Off Pink Lips

A rosy pout is spring's prettiest accessory. Find your perfect shade with our simple tips.

Fair
An opaque, pale pink gloss with an iridescent finish is light enough for your delicate skin but bright enough to give it a healthy glow.
Try Clarins Paris Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer ($23).

 

Olive
A sheer pink with lots of gold flecks in it will bring out the warm, golden tones in your skin.
Try Giorgio Armani Lip Shimmer in 28 ($26:).

 

Caramel
Make sure the pink doesn't have too much red in it, or it'll make you look orange. Choose one with a bluish undertone.
Try Physicians Formula Plump Potion Needle-Free Lip Plumping Cocktail in Berry Potion ($9).

 

Medium-dark
Since your lips are a light-brown shade, sheer glosses won't work. Pick a thick one in hot pink to evenly coat your lips with color.
Try Three Custom Color Specialists in Dahlia ($19 ).

 

Dark
You need a strong reddish-pink gloss to pop against your skin. It'll also brighten your complexion.
Try Maybelline New York ShineSeduction Glossy Lipcolor in Beaming Berry ($8).

 

Try this: Apply concealer to the outer corners of your lips, which are generally darker than the center. This will even out the color of your lips so the gloss goes on in one nice shade.
