Choosing the right shade of mineral lipstick is a very important decision when it comes to giving you the right kind of look for a particular occasion. It depends mostly on your skin tone and the shape of your lips as to what shade of lipstick should be selected:

  • Fair skin tone

For fair skin tone which doesn’t get a tan easily, it is always a good idea to look into shades like coral, peach, nudes, maroons and reds. If you have slightly thicker lips, go for deep colours, whereas on the contrary, if your lips are more toward thinner side, go for lighter shades.

  • Medium skin tone

Skin tone, which is more prone to getting a sun tan, is more suited for lip shades like berry red and pinks, magenta, or cranberry red.

  • Tan skin tone

If you have a tan skin tone, it is always suggested to avoid dark colours like shades of browns or purples. Coral and deep pinks will certainly uplift your look and give you the right shade on your lips.  

  • Deep complexion

If your skin tone is dark, you should look for shades like plum, caramel, champagne and ruby red. Go for deeper shades of red and maroon.

It is highly recommended that you go for organic makeup brands for choosing the right lip colour in mineral makeup in Australia.

Unless you want to stand out and make a statement, keep it subtle and according to your skin tone. Otherwise, you are free to go for bright pinks and reds whenever you want! Always dab your lips with a tissue paper to get the excessive pigment off your lips.
