Best Lipstick Shade for Dusky Skin Tone

Although every shade of lipstick looks good on dusky skin, however, there are a few particular lip shades that complement their skin tone. With so many best online lipsticks available on various platforms, you might need clarification about which one to pick for yourself. Weigh off your stress, because we are here with a list of lip shades that will definitely make you the spotlight of every place you go. After running various trials, we have compiled a list of lipstick that will not only accentuate your luscious lips but also boost your confidence. 

Here are some tips to consider when selecting the right lipstick shade for a dusky skin tone:

To select the best lipstick shades for dusky skin, it’s important to understand your undertone. You can easily determine your undertone by examining the veins on your wrist; blue veins indicate a cool undertone, green veins indicate a warm undertone, and if you’re a blend of both, you may have a neutral undertone.

Warm undertones are characterised by peachy, golden, or yellow hues, while cool undertones have more red, pink, or blue hues. If you have a blend of warm and cool undertones, you may fall under the neutral undertone category. For those with cool undertones, pink, darker berry tints, and mauves are recommended, while taupe and magenta lipsticks are a safe choice.

It’s a misconception that deep or brown complexions can’t handle strong and bright shades. In fact, these colors appear more natural and striking on dusky skin tones, such as bright red or orange hues for a bolder pout. Deep brown shades of earthy tones are especially flattering for those with dusky skin tones. Check out our wide array of lipsticks that are made with care ingredients to keep your lips soft and nourished.
