Beauty Tip Of The Week #11 ~ The Best Lipstick Color For All Skin Tones

If you could only have one lipstick, what shade would you choose?

There is actually one shade of lipstick that looks gorgeous on everyone. In fact, I would call it the best lipstick color for all skin tones.

That shade is rose.

Not your grandma’s rose, but soft, succulent, kissable, delectable rose.

Rose lipstick or lip gloss is universally gorgeous. Every skin tone looks lovely with a rose lip.

Rose lips are fabulous dressed down with jeans and a tshirt, but also look stunning on the red carpet.

A soft glossy rose will make the lip look just bitten and the teeth look fresh and white.

Rose lips will also take you through every season. If you are the girl who doesn’t want to buy endless lip colors, or if you like having a good, faithful lipstick that you can always turn to, rose is perfect.

How to choose a rose lip:
When choosing a rose lipstick or lipgloss look for a shade that is 2 levels deeper than your own lip color.
If you have fair skin and pinkish lips, look for a shade that is 1 level deeper.
Never choose a shade that is lighter than your own lip color.
