Natural Looking Lipstick

A great way to find a natural looking lipstick is to first identify the color of your naked lips.
Are they pinker? more beige? more golden?

Then, think about the color of your skin.
Are you a pinky (warm) or yellow (cool) or neutral undertone?

Once you have figured that out, you can go looking for complementary shades.
Try and find a shade that is close to the color of your lips
and that is in the same tone range as your skin.

Here are some of my favorites:

Pink lips, cool toned skin should go with golden pinks and soft rosy corals

MAC Shy Girl

Estee Lauder in Crystal Tiramisu

(estee lauder's crystal range is beautiful for a sheer, shimmery color thats not too glossy)

cool skin and golden lips go for caramels and peaches

Revlon Super Lustrous in Fleshtone
MAC freckletone

Warm skin and pink lips should go for true pinks

Estee Lauder in Crystal Baby
Revlon Superlustrous in Pink in the Afternoon

and neutrals can go either way!

MAC Cherish

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

(looks dark, but goes on totally sheer and barely there)
