by Stephanie Montes

Finding the best makeup colors for your skin tone can be tricky. Let the most beautiful women in Hollywood serve as inspiration for your next beauty purchase. From sheer rouges to orangey reds, there’s a perfect shade for you.

Seeing Red

Fair Skin With Cool Undertones

A bright red lipstick on fair skin can sometimes look too stark. Instead, try a sheer berry shade.

Fair Skin With Warm Undertones

Make a statement with a bold dark shade. Look for reds with blue undertones to make your complexion brighter and teeth whiter.

Medium Skin With Warm Undertones

The most versatile skin tone of all looks great with almost every shade. For a fun update, pair your warm skin with an equally warm orangey red lipstick.

Medium Dark Skin With Warm Undertones

Also versatile, medium dark skin looks beautiful with a bright red matte lip. Look for warm tones to make your complexion glow.

Dark Skin With Cool Undertones

Accent cool skin with a lipstick that has subtle blue undertones—this goes for everything from bright reds to deep burgundies.
