The 24 Best Sweet Pink Lipsticks For Asian Skin

From a sheer wash of colour or intense saturation, here are all the pink lipstick picks that are bound to flatter Asian skin tones.

Navigating pink lipsticks can be a tricky thing. While most would play it safe by sticking to foolproof hues of pink like rosy pinks, there is an entire range of pink shades that have the potential to brighten your complexion (not to mention giving you endless options to experiment with bolder shades). So how exactly should women select pink lipsticks?

For starters, if you prefer something subtle, look for pink shades that have beige or brown undertones. These options will likely not pop, but they will do a great job in evening out any discolourations on your lips for a natural effect. From there, you can play around with different textures and finishes, as sheer or glossy ones will be great for weekends or making your lips look more pouty while satiny or matte textures tend to look more sophisticated and fierce.

If you’re game for experimenting with something bolder, opt for pinks that have red or orange undertones like fuchsia. This will ensure that they do not wash you out like bubblegum pink shades might — not to mention they can look at tad too Barbie-ish or garish. And if you’re feeling a more glamorous look, try deeper or darker pinks which venture into berry territory for a dramatic effect. Here, all the best pink lip colours that will flatter Asian skin tones.
