Best Lipsticks For Medium Skin and Neutral Undertones

Why Are These The Best Lipsticks For Medium Skin?

Medium skin tones have a wide range of undertones and depth. Natalie, pictured here, has neutral undertones and is closer to the middle of the spectrum for medium skin tones. If your skin tone (and hair color) are similar to Natalie’s, keep reading to learn the best lipsticks for your medium skin!

Those with a medium neutral skin tone can easily wear a variety of colors. So for your makeup bag you’ll be focusing on hair, eye, and base lip color. Start by looking for a pinkish-brown, a peachy pink, and for a fun pop of color like a lavender pink. We’ve gone into detail about each shade below, but for now let’s talk WHY these are the best lipsticks for medium skin.   

When choosing lipsticks for someone with a similar look to Natalie, 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. 

Natalie’s base lip color is a medium purple so any lipstick she chooses will have a slight purple tint to them. Knowing your base lip color allows you to find lipstick shades that are just a shade deeper (like Ooh La La) 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 Natalie’s these lipsticks will all be good choices for you. 


Oh, Snapdragon! – Pop Of Color Lipstick

This soft blossom pink lipstick with a cool-undertone is what Natalie is pictured wearing above. This is such a fun color for those with purple based lip colors! The creamy, full coverage color of Oh, Snapdragon is soft but colorful enough to keep this lipstick from looking too pastel or washed out. 

This will be your go-to color for a bold lip choice that stands out from the crowd in a beautiful way.  

Ooh La La – Your Gorgeous Nude Lipstick

Ooh La La on the other hand is going to be your everyday nude, my-lips-but-better type shade. It’s a dusty rose color that is so easily worn and as a bonus it goes with everything! Since it has a brown undertone, it will neutralize the purple you have in your base lip color. Making your lips a more natural and neutral color so that you can wear anything else you’d like without worrying about clashing.  

This lipstick will give your skin tone a beautiful glow as well which will highlight any golden undertones you may have in your skin. Ooh La La makes a statement that is subtle, stunning, and simply gorgoues!

Let’s Flamingle – Your Perfect Neutral Pink Lipstick

Let’s Flamingle is a tropical hot pink with a coral cast. While this lipstick is a hot pink, it’s on the softer side, making this sweet and sassy lipstick more versatile and not overly bright. If you happen to have purple based lips like Natalie then this peachy-pink color will become more of a neutral pink. It looks stunning on those with medium neutral skin tones because it warms up the skin and brings attention to golden undertones. This makes your complexion look vibrant, glowy, and healthy.  

The coverage of Let’s Flamingle gives your lips pure full coverage creamy color that is both blissful and charming.
