I love experimenting with lip colors and while working at MAC I got to learn which lipstick shades are the best. Choosing the right shades of lipsticks for yourself can get pretty confusing, so here is a guide I’ve compiled to help you decide which one’s the best for you.
1. The Classic red
Everyone’s always looking for that classic red lip color. A great color for ALL skin tones, it even has blue undertones that will make your teeth look whiter!
2. The Hot Pink
Every girl needs at least one hot pink lipstick in her collection. Especially if you’re following Arab lip trends, hot pink becomes a must. I couldn’t narrow it down to one because it depends on how intense you feel comfortable going. Here are my personal favourites.
A vivid hot pink for those willing to be BOLD.
Girl About Town
Fabulous Fuchsia! This is a MAC oldie, been a part of the collection for a while, but definitely a classic. A favorite hot pink lip color amongst many.
Amped up Fuchsia! This is another favorite and not such a in your face type of hot pink. A good choice for those wanting to play it safe.
3. The Neutral Mauve
We have those days where we want to look pretty, yet also natural. That is the time to pull out our neutral lip colours.
Soft muted brownish pink
4. The Soft Glossy Pink
Not really a big fan of lip-glosses, so when I want shine, I turn to glossy lipsticks instead. This is a beautiful soft glossy pink ideal for any age
A warm Sea Shell Pink
5. The Perfect Pink
We all need that perfect pink lip color that will go with any outfit. They tend to be natural yet manage to give some color.
Mid tone yellow pink
6. The Nudes
Nude is a very popular color in the west. Although not as popular in the Middle East, yet still a must for some.
Beige Pink with Pearl
Pale Muted Peachy Beige
7. The Plum
Having some variety in your lipsticks gives you a chance to experiment. A plum is a hue that women LOVE.
Fanciful Rose Plum
Mid Tone Pinky Plum
8. The Peach
I’ve noticed that I always receive compliments when wearing either of these two peaches. Peachstock is such a popular colour worn by many. Peach also looks stunning with a tan or just dust on some bronzer for a sun kissed look.
Creamy Beige Peach
Clean light peachy coral
9. The Berry
Add some variety to your collection with a shade of berry.
Mid Tone Berry
10. The Barbie Pink
Bright Rosy Pink with Shimmer
11. The ARAB Favorites
Bold, Bright and Sexy: favourites of the Middle East.
