Your Guide to Choosing the Right Matte Lippie for Your Skin Tone

Time to ditch unflattering shades!


( Even if you aren’t a makeup junkie, you likely still consider lipstick a beauty staple—it instantly upgrades an everyday look with minimal effort. But as much as you’d want to flaunt every pretty lip color you can get your hands on, the struggle is real when you’re trying to find a shade that flatters your skin tone. You don’t want to look washed out when wearing a nude lip, do you?


Consider this your quick and handy guide to choosing the right shade for your Pinay skin tone! (And don’t forget to moisturize your puckers while you’re at it.)


For porcelain to fair skin:

The trick to rocking a matte lip for mestiza girls is to go for shades that stand out against your pale skin.



For those with fair skin and cool undertones, candy pink hues like Pink Flame will make your look bright and fresh.



If you have warm undertones, Mauvey is a great everyday lippie—it will add just the right touch of warmth without washing you out.



Looking for a red for special occasions? The bright Vamp Red will instantly glam up your look.


For medium skin:

You can rock a lot of shades when you've got a medium skin tone, and it's just a matter of finding one that flatters your look the best.



Make a statement without going over the top with Siennas, a warm peachy-brown that still manages to look trendy and on-point.



Take it up a notch with Toast of New York, a lovely brick-red that will surely turn heads.



If you need a universal red for your next night out, go for Dusk, which looks great on any undertone.


For morena skin:

Deep shades look absolutely stunning on morena skin, so don’t be afraid to flaunt dark colors.



Fierce Red is a rich, deep burgundy with plummy undertones. It’s the perfect balance between bold and elegant.



Want to really go all-out? Vivid Violet’s plum hue screams confidence and promises sexy and striking puckers.
