Find Your Best Pink Lip Color
Take this quiz to discover the ideal pink gloss or lip makeup for you -- mwah
It's official: Pink is back, and some argue it's the new red! Makeup artists John Fussell and Jane McKay both agree that pink is a youthful, healthy color that can look great on everyone. "Color has no age discrimination," Fussell says. But like red, pink takes on many intensities and undertones, so before you shell out more dough for this trend, take the quiz to find out which shades were made for you.
Your ideal pink: coral pink
"Coral pink looks good on everyone," says makeup artist Jane McKay. But it really pops on skin tones like yours, so why not take advantage? For a truly bold yet wearable coral pink, try Laura Mercier Lip Colour in Camellia, $22. A sheer, subtle option: Tropez Ultra Glaze Lip Gloss in Catz Meow, $1.99.
Tip: Your skin tone also allows you to experiment with blue-based pinks ... if you dare. "Fear of pink is usually related to pinks that have a blue undertone, which really screams, 'color,'" says makeup artist John Fussell. Ease into it with Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Pout, $18, or if you choose to dive in, try a rich gloss-lipstick hybrid like Chanel Creme Gloss Lumiere in Madeline, $32. (A word of caution: Bluish pinks can make teeth look more yellow, so keep those pearly whites white!)
