Best Pink Lipstick Shades For Work and Play

I feel like every woman should have a pink lipstick shade. Red is a sure necessity, but pink is another  great color to add to your collection. You can wear a pink lipstick anywhere but I think it’s all about the shade you wear. A bubble gum pink isn’t the best choice for work, yet you can find shades and use tricks to make a pink lipstick work for you no matter your complexion. Finding pink shades that are “brown girl friendly” can be overwhelming, but it is all about trying some on and not only looking to those expensive brands. You can find a pink lippy that works for you right in your grocery store. Consider it part of your shopping list, haha! When I am deciding what pink lipstick to wear, I think about where I’ll be going and choose accordingly.

FOR WORK, business meetings or interviews my first instinct is to choose a rose pinky nude. I love a natural look with a hint of pink to compliment your complexion. You can always make a pink lip look as reserved as you need it to be. Choose wisely!

Tip: Wear a brown liner if the shade is a bit too light for you, that way you can blend it into the outlines of your lips and make a smooth transition.

FOR PLAY, a night out on the town or a movie date I go for bright and bold pinks. These offer that fun and girly element. You can show your personality and brighten up your smile with the right shade. I tend to stay with pinks closer to purple spectrum just because I feel that works for me. Whatever you decide, you’ll never know until you try that shade you’ve been dying for!

Tip: For bright colored liptsticks try matte shades. I find that works for me being a girl with full lips. Sometimes the shiny, glossy lipsticks tend to overpower my lips. Also, the regular lipsticks or satin finishes sometimes don’t show up the way I think they would.  I like to be able to get bold rich color that is true to it’s color and matte shades do that for me every time.
