Best Lipsticks For Brunettes with Fair Cool Skin

Why Are These The Best Lipsticks For Cool Skin With Brown Hair?

So, the most fool-proof way we’ve found to determine if you have cool skin is – do you look best in silver jewelry – and would NEVER wear gold? Then, yep – you’ve got cool skin. So let’s dig into why these are the best lipsticks for cool skin that’s fair with brown hair.

If you’ve got cool skin you’ll want to look for lipsticks in the berry and pink range.  For your makeup bag you’ll be focusing on hair, eye, and base lip color, to really hone in on the best lipsticks for you. Start by looking for a soft lavender cool-toned pink, a berry pink, and for a little bold pop – a deep berry. We’ve gone into detail about each shade below, but for now let’s talk WHY.   

When choosing lipsticks for someone with a similar look as Robyn, pictured here, we’re really focused on enhancing features. The great thing about these colors is she’ll be able to still wear them as her features change over time. Maybe with only slight adjustments to how bold the colors are worn. As her lip pigment fades, and her hair turns salt & pepper she’ll want to wear these shades a little bolder to help her features stand out even more.   

Now, let’s talk base lip color, which is the color your lips are with nothing on them.  This is important because our lipsticks are designed to blend WITH your natural lip color not completely cover it up. So, these lipsticks will look different on someone who has a brown or purple base lip color, and may not be our first choices. 

Robyn’s base lip color is a medium pink so any lipstick she chooses will look more pink.  Knowing your base lip color allows you to find lipstick shades that are just a shade deeper for a “my-lips-but-better” look – the perfect everyday lipstick for looking pulled together without any effort.  It will be your timeless, classic, everyday shade. 

If your overall look, is anywhere similar to Robyn’s these lipsticks will all be good choices for you.


Petal To The Metal – My Lips But Better awesome everyday lipstick

Petal To The Metal is going to be your go-to for everyday wear. It’s a creamy, pigmented rosy/mauve pink lipstick that has a slight shimmer to it and hints of berry. The rosy mauve color is great for those with fair skin since it won’t over power your complexion while at the same time not being too light as to wash you out. The slight berry works well for those with cool undertones AND it pairs perfectly with a naturally pink based lip.  

It’s moisturizing, feels light weight on the lips and is very wearable; day or night.

Oh, Snapdragon – A Little Bolder Pop Of Color

This soft blossom pink lipstick with a cool-undertone is what Robyn is pictured wearing above. This is such a fabulous color! The creamy, full coverage color of Oh, Snapdragon is soft but colorful enough to keep this lipstick from looking too pastel or washed out, which is important if you have fair skin with cool undertones. Oh Snapdragon is a great option if you’re looking for a bolder lip color to rock on date nights or even for fun day activities if you’d like to dress up a bit more.

Can’t Be Beet – Bold Power Shade

Can’t Be Beet is great option for those with pink based lips but overall cool features like, hair color, eye color, and skin tone. Now, if your skin is very fair be cautious to not apply too much as it could overpower your skin. Our suggestion would be to apply this lipstick with a lip brush and use it more as a lip stain. You can always go bolder with it when and if you want to.  

It’s a deep and luxurious lipstick that resembles the beauty of delicious freshly picked berries. Apply it softly for a beautiful berry stain or heavier for an elegant and romantic look.
