How to pick the perfect pink lipstick for a dusky skin tone?

  • Statement shades such as fuchsia or strawberry pink will make heads turn.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold jewel-toned pinks.


Pink is one shade of lipstick that most teenagers try when they apply lipstick for the first time. It looks fashionable and a shade that would go with any skin tone and any outfit you wear. We can’t stress enough the importance of knowing which shade suits your skin the most. If you have a darker skin tone, the more pigment you should wear. And for wheatish or fair skin, you can opt for hues in pale rose, baby rose, or mauve.

Happy Shopping, all you pretty in pink ladies!
