Every woman has there own preferences when it comes to the texture of their lipstick as they vary from glossy to matte or something in between.
However it takes a good
Still, if you’re looking for a shade that will work wonders on yourself, your roommate, and your best friend, you’re in luck. Here are a compiled a list of five universally flattering lipstick shades every woman needs on hand.
1. Red carpet red
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: A sweep of bright red lipstick can transform any outfit from drab to fab. But with all the blue and yellow undertones to worry about, finding a shade that flatters tons of different skin types can be difficult.
2. A little sheen
This shade isn’t like the rest of those sheer lipsticks that pack on more pigment than we’d like: When on your pout, it looks more like a gloss. Not only does it give you a pretty sheen without being too sticky, but it also has the most interesting color. Before you apply it on your lips, the actual stick looks like a gothic bordeaux, but it only adds enough color to enhance your lips’ natural color. Whether you pair it with a minimalist slip or a T-shirt and pair of jeans, you are bound to get a lot of mileage out of this option.
3. A versatile rose
Consider rose the perfect hue for anyone who wants to add some colour to their lips but doesn’t want to create a huge statement with a Bordeaux, red, or brown. Since some women are blessed with an enviable tan year-round while others have fair skin, finding a rose shade that can flatter everyone in between is tricky.
4. Gothic purple
If you’re a true beauty risk-taker, traditional reds, pinks, and neutrals might feel outdated. A dramatic purple color, on the other hand, packs on the drama but can still be worn with several different outfits.
As we mentioned before, wearing a darker lipstick can age you a couple of years, so be careful about your process. To keep your look fresh, McAdams tells the publication to select a lip liner slightly darker than this shade to draw your pout slightly fuller than usual.
5. Bright and bold pink
Not every woman naturally gravitates toward the exact shade of pink Barbie wears, but maybe they should. It looks good on everyone. Yes, even those with fair skin. One woman with this type of complexion tried out the lipstick and said, “Even though this one was bold, it wasn’t over-the-top.”
If you opt for this color, just be sure to keep the rest of your makeup minimal to avoid entering costume territory. Trust us, this lip color makes enough of a statement on its own.
