I reccomend Revlons shade "Fablous Fig" or "Wine Not"

Fair Skin Tones

If you have fair skin, choose deep plum and wine reds with a blue undertone, light browns or beige with a pink undertone, or light shiny pinks with blue undertones. Women that have pale skin with blue undertones look best in cool colors such as nudes and pinks. Always, always stay away from browns since this color will only make you look paler.

I reccomend Revlons shade "Nude Attitude" or "Pink Pout"

Olive Skin Tones

People with olive skin tones should purchase shades of lipstick in a deep and rich brown or those shades with a mahogany undertones. Olive skinned girls can also try a rich, dark pink or dark berry shades. Also keep in mind that a girl with olive skin can actually pull off fire engine red.

I reccomend Revlons shade "Pink About it" or "Really Red"
