Why Are These The Best Lipsticks For Fair Skin & Cool Undertones

Those with cool skin tones can easily become washed out by light colors and on the other hand look overpowered by a color that’s too bright or too dark. So for your makeup bag you’ll be looking at a rosy pink, a light mauve, and a coral-beige for when you are wanting a bolder lip option. 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 Ashley, pictured here, we’re really focused on enhancing features. The great thing about these colors is she’ll likely be able to still wear them as her features change over time. Maybe with only slight adjustments to how bold the colors are worn.  

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. 

Jordan’s base lip color is pink and differs from the skin color on her face. Knowing your base lip color allows you to find lipstick shades that are just a shade deeper (like Kissimme) for a “my-lips-but-better” look – the perfect everyday lipstick for looking pulled together without any effort.  It’s your timeless, classic, everyday shade. 

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

Day After Morocco – Bold Lipstick *Unexpected*

This beautiful reddish pink lipstick with a coral-beige undertone is what Jordan is pictured wearing above. Having fair skin with a cool undertone you might not be used to wearing a warm color however, this is the best option for when you’d like to wear a bolder lip. The reason is that it adds some warmth to your complexion. Also, if you’re like Jordan and have blue eyes it will make them stand out more. Not to mention, if you happen to have golden blonde or dirty blonde hair this means your hair color is on the warmer side as well so Day After Morocco is going to compliment your hair color as well.

Kissimmee – Playful Pink

Kissimme when worn softly as a lip stain makes for the BEST rosy pink lip color for those with fair skin. It can be worn bolder or more dramatically but just be careful to not go too bright or it might overpower your complexion.  

This lipstick gives you an unforgettable lip color! It feels creamy, and applies buttery smooth with full-coverage. It has no shimmer and is refreshingly beautiful. It looks amazing on those with naturally pink based lips.  

Maven Mauve – The ONE lipstick you must own!

It’s so easy to wear in a variety of situations because it can be taken from a “no-lipstick-lipstick” to defined color with just two extra coats. Maven Mauve is perfect for a daytime look, or a sultry smokey-eye nighttime look!  

Maven Mauve is a gorgeous light lipstick without shimmer. It’s a great options for when you’d like to have a more natural look.

    The lip moisturizer stick is the ONLY one of nearly 30 other brands I have tried that doesn’t dry out my lips. Your lip gloss unfortunately did dry my lip but the moisturizer stick quickly fixed it after I peeled if the dry skin layer. I am desperate to find a lip color that my lips can tolerate. Any suggestions???

    What’s happened to the drama shade?

    1. Hi Emilee,
      Unfortunately, Drama has been discontinued. I can place a tally mark on it for you, it’s possible with enough requests that it could make a comeback in the future.

  4. Love this; really helpful. 🙂
