Bold pink lips are a HOT trend this summer, but picking a picking a shade that will look right on you can be a bit intimidating. Here a a few tips to help you choose one that is right for your skin tone!

Fair Skin: If you have fair skin, pick a pink with a deeper color. We don’t need you looking like 80s Barbie! If you have a yellow undertone, try for a pink that leans orange, like CoverGirl’s Bombshell Explosion. If you have blue undertones, try for a pink that leans purple, like CoverGirl’s Spellbound. Coral is also a hot color on fair skin!

Olive Skin: If you have olive skin, pinks can be a bit tricky. One wrong turn can have you looking ‘Jersey Shore.’ You want to find a pink with a purple undertone like a magenta. CoverGirl’s Spellbound will look great!

Dark Skin: If you have dark skin, GO BOLD! Yes, the bolder pinks will look great too, but a bright pink like CoverGirl’s Enchantress will stand out and look gorgeous.
