Why Are These The Best Lipsticks For Silver Hair, Warm Skin

Warm skin tones look best wearing warm or neutral based lipstick shades. The following three lipstick shades are the perfect place to start.  Your makeup bag wouldn’t be complete without a red, a warm medium-pink, and a neutral berry. We’ve gone into detail about each shade below, but for now let’s talk WHY.   

Age plays a role here – Gail, pictured here, is in her 50s. These lipsticks compliment her silver hair, her still highly pigmented base lip color, her warm skin, and blue eyes. We mention age because we want you to look your best as your features change, and that usually happens when either your hair goes grey or your base lip color fades. That’s when you know it’s time to shift to a slightly different color palette – which you can find here. 

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 a little different on someone who started off with a brown or purple base lip color, and may not be our first choices. 

Gail’s base lip color is a medium reddish pink and her lips are still highly pigmented so any lipstick she wears is going to pick up that reddish-pink color. Knowing your base lip color allows you to find lipstick shades that are just a bit deeper for a “my-lips-but-better” look – the perfect everyday lipstick for looking pulled together without any effort.  It’s your go-to everyday shade. 

If your base lip color is still highly pigmented like Gail’s then these are great choices for you.

Drama – Power Shade

This stunning, deep berry/purple color is what’s pictured on Gail above. Those with warm  skin or neutral skin look great in a brown based berry shade because it allows them to wear a berry look that works well with their skin. If you have naturally pigmented lips like Gail you’ll also find that it diffuses the natural pink in your lips, creating more balance and staying more true to color vs. turning overly bright.   

Drama also brightens and brings out the blue in Gail’s eyes, which we love! This lipstick can be worn deep, dark and sultry – or it can also be worn very light if you apply one coat with a lip brush. It’s the perfect color for year round and can be used in a multitude of makeup  looks.  

Twist ‘N Pout – Your “No-Lipstick-Lipstick”

This lipstick might not be what you’d typically consider for a nude lipstick and it might not be what you’d normally pick but hear us out… 

Gail has said that she’s noticed that as she’s gotten older tradional “nude” lipsticks don’t work for her anymore and wash her out. She feels like she needs a little more color than New York or Oh My Guava can provide. This is a very common thing that we hear so Twist ‘N Pout comes to the rescue!  

Twist ‘N Pout is a warm-toned middle pink with a hint of coral. Making it the the perfect no-lipstick-lipstick for warm toned or neutral gals. You’ll find that Twist ‘N Pout doesn’t wash you out, being that it’s a warmer pink. Gail says that she also loves that it doesn’t turn too bright like most other pinks do.  

Strawberry Lips – Light Red Lipstick To Bring Balance

Strawberry Lips is a gorgeous light red lipstick! It’s a great red lip option for those with naturally pigmented lips as it doesn’t turn overly bright or pink. It works well on warmer skin tones, and for those with silver hair you’ll find that Strawberry Lips doesn’t wash you out. Instead it brings balance to your overall look.   

Strawberry Lips doesn’t have any sparkle, but does have a subtle shine. It’s a versatile, sophisticated, and chic lip color that can be worn sheer for a berry-stained look, or layered on for more depth. This gives you maximum control over the color.

    I have graying medium brown hair and very fair skin with cool undertones. I now wear glasses all the time. They are a Calvin Klein cat eye style and the frames are a crystal mauve/rose color.

    The glasses are a great pop of color for my face. But, the Audrey lipstick doesn’t seem to be the right color anymore.. What might you suggest? I am happy to start with samples.

    As always, a thousand thank you’s.

    1. Hi Mary! I took a look at your glasses online and they are so pretty. I’d recommend trying the following, Berrycuda, Can’t Be Beet, Mabel, Maven Mauve, Mayberry, Petal To The Metal, and Oh Snapdragon <3

    What lipstick do you recommend for a 68 year old who has salt and pepper hair? I have more white hair than black. I have brown eyes light brown skin. My veins are blue. I consider myself to be a warm person because the darker tone clothes look better on my upper torso.
