Best Mauve Lipstick Shades For Your Skin Tone
For light to fair skin, it’s a good idea to stay away from milky shades because they can easily wash you out. The idea here is to choose a mauve shade that can add more color and warmth to your pale skin, so opt for a mauve lippie that has more of a rosy-pink color. Our Mood lippie is the perfect mauve shade for fair skin!
Of course, you should also consider your undertone to choose the most flattering shade of lipstick. For fair skin with a cooler tone, you can definitely go with a mauve lipstick that has bluish or purple tones. If your skin has warmer undertones, then it’s most flattering to stick with taupe-y pink shades.
For medium skin, it’s ideal to choose colors that are a bit darker than your natural lip color because they will add more dimension to your complexion.
Although warmer undertones should stick to warm shades of lipstick, a bluish pink lipstick can actually be the perfect complement to medium skin with warmer undertones. But overall, medium skin tones look great with deeper shades of mauve with either taupe-y or purple undertones. Our I Do lippie is the perfect mauve lipstick for medium skin tones!
Rich, deep shades of mauve with a hint of brown look absolutely stunning on deeper skin tones! There are actually many different shades of mauve lipstick that look great on deep skin tones.
Warmer shades of mauve with peachy or taupe-y undertones look incredible and they work wonders for adding more dimension to your complexion. For more ultra-glam vibes, a pinkish purple mauve looks phenomenal against deeper skin. Our Milan lippie is the perfect shade for deep skin tones!
Go ultra-glam with a metallic or glossy finish
Mauve lipstick comes in different shades and finishes – but what we love the most about this color is how versatile it truly is! For a show-stopping effect, a mauve lipstick with a metallic finish is by far one of our top choices for taking our glam to the next level.
But for a softer, more natural glam, a milky lavender matte lippie is always our go-to. Whether you’re wearing it during the day or for a night out with the BFFS, adding a coat of clear gloss (or one with sparkles) will definitely turn a couple heads.
