According to celebrity makeup artist Amber Amos, her go-to universal pink lipstick is Dior’s Lip Glow in shade 001 Pink Glow. “It’s a hydrating, pink shade that self-adjusts to give the most complimentary glossy rosy shade based off of your lips natural undertone.” Celebrity makeup artist Vincent Oquendo agrees, adding that 008 Ultra Pink is another great option. “Because these shades are more sheer, they can be worn on all skin tones beautifully.”
Celebrity makeup artist Katie Danza calls this shade the perfect everyday color. “I constantly use it on set and on myself; it’s a gorgeous warm rose with a touch of nude that flatters all skin tones and works year-round, day or night.”
“Cool toned pinks look great on most skin tones,” says celebrity makeup artist Min Min Ma. “Right now, I’m obsessed with this one, which looks just as beautiful as a stain or fully on as a lipstick. I like the matte texture because it’s more modern looking. You can always throw on a lip balm on top for a more sheer look, or even double it as a cheek stain.”
“This lipstick is a classic vibrant pink that I always have in my kit,” says celebrity makeup artist Maddie North. “It’s semi-matte, so it stays on really well but has a slight sheen to it. It looks great on pretty much every skin type, so if you’re going for something bold and fun, I highly recommend it as it always makes a statement!”
