The Best Lip Combos To Complement Your Skin Tone

How to Enhance Your Makeup Look With Simple Lip Combos

A go-to lip combo is a must have for every girl’s day-to-day makeup look. A stunning lip adds the finishing touch that makes your makeup pop that extra bit more.

Having two lip products that you can rely on to seamlessly blend together will make life easier when it comes to that last step of makeup.

No longer will you need to contemplate on what lip liners and lipsticks will go well together, and what shade is the best match for your skin tone.

Choosing the best lip combination can be a tedious process but now it is simplified. 

1. Fair Skin

It is no secret that for fair complexions pink shades are the classic choice because they beautifully add to the natural lip colour and create a youthful look. Pink, peach and coral shades enhance fair complexion.

For a natural day look Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Pillow Talk’ lip liner coupled with Tom Ford’s ‘Ultra-Shine Lip Colour’ creates a sexy but natural nude tone. This combination makes the lips look fresh and feel soft and is also reasonably long lasting. The Charlotte Tilbury lip liner creates a defined lip and is waterproof, lasting at least 6 hours. 

The Tom Ford lipstick has a glossy finish and A creamy feel. It is super buildable and can therefore be applied until it creates the perfect finish for your exact skin tone.

Red lips also look gorgeous on fair skin, especially at night. Fair skin often has a neutral or cool undertone, therefore it is best to lean towards blue or purple-based reds.

Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur’ liquid lipstick is perfect for fair skin. The shade ‘Ruby Blur’ best suits the pink tone of fair skin. This product is hydrating and plumping.

2. Medium to Tan Skin

Warm and neutral tones tend to complement medium skin tones the best. Nude and brown lip shades will elevate and complete a natural makeup look for medium to tan skin.

For an everyday lip combo, Rare Beauty’s lip liner in the shade ‘Gifted’ blends perfectly with Fenty Beauty’s ‘Hot Chocolit’ lip gloss. Rare Beauty’s liner is longwearing and waterproof. The Fenty gloss is nourishing and luminous making this combo great for day-to-day wear.

However, to complete a more bold look, pair Mac’s ‘Chestnut’ lip liner with the Mac ‘Lustre Glass Posh Pit’ lipstick. This creates a glamorous night time makeup which is also long-lasting.

Medium berry shades also suit brown skin. Fenty’s ‘Berry Banger’ lip stain is hydrating and leaves a beautiful subtle purple finish. Paired with the Fenty lip oil, the lips will be left smooth and with a great colour.

4. Dark Skin

On dark complexion bold red lips look amazing and can elevate a look drastically. They can be worn to enhance either a “day” or “night” look. Laura Mercier’s ‘Wild Grape’ lip liner and Kylie Cosmetics’ ‘Mary Jo K’ liquid lipstick is the perfect match for deeper complexions. To give a shiny finish it can be topped with any clear gloss.  

On a daily basis, brown nude shades topped with a clear gloss look fresh on dark skin. The ‘Chestnut’ Mac liner and Maybelline lifter gloss in ‘Stone’ is a stunning combo. It enhances the natural two toned lip colour that many dark skin women tend to have. When finished with a clear gloss it accentuates the lips and elevates the entire makeup.
