MAC Lipstick in Mocha, $14.50 "A shade of pinky brown is a really good neutral, because it adds definition to the lips but won't overpower your face or even your natural lip color," says Maderich. And since this shade has neutral undertones, it's a universally good pick for every skin tone. Insider tip: You can use this pinky-brown lipstick to correct or reshape thin lips. "Women always complain about a lack of an upper lip. I hate it when people use red lipstick to reshape their lips -- it usually makes them look like Joan Crawford," says Maderich. "With a pinky shade of brown, you can overdraw your lips and it'll look pretty darn natural."
Bonus: "Pinky-nude is a beautiful color to wear if you have rosacea," says Maderich. "If you wear a lip color that's too red or too blue, it'll bring out the underlying redness in your cheeks."
