Tips for Selecting the Right Lipstick Shade to Complement Your Outfit

If you feel good you want to show that feeling off by looking good! What’s a better way to convey your mood than expressing it exactly where people will see it the most; on your lips and in your style! Complement your style with that perfect shade of lipstick. But how can you be sure that peach passion lipstick is going to really come together with that minty-green romper? We hear you and we get it. The right color combination isn’t always so obvious. Fortunately, we’ve got you (and your lips) covered with some tips for choosing just the right hue for you!

Red on red

If that sizzling hot dress is a ravishing shade of red, you might think slapping on even more red is taking it too far. We say no way! If you’re feeling bold, be bold and bring on the bold, red lipstick. But, if you’re feeling more subdued, go for a nude shade instead! Either option can be a show stopping look!

Mellow yellow

Whether your yellow is mellow or electric, make it magical with a stand-out shade of fuchsia or maroon. You’ll be amazed at how well these two colors play together.

White night or light

 White is so versatile! You can literally go for the angelic look with a pale pink lipstick or vamp it up with a deep dark burgundy.

Back to black

And why not? After all, this is one shade that goes with just about every other one. From neon pink to perfectly plum and everything in between, with black, you really can let your lips do the talking.

Blue baby

Orangey, pink shades seem to bring out the best in blue. And the contrast just does something special to an ensemble.

Gloriously green

Green is glorious alright. But in this case, maybe keeping all eyes on the outfit is a solid choice with a warm, nude tone. Or red! Why? Because if loving red lipstick is wrong, we don’t want to be right.

Treating yourself to any and every shade of lipstick you like is just one way to indulge in a little self-care. So, get out there and experiment with every shade in the color wheel!
