Ever wonder why some lip colors complete your look and others completely ruin it? Well, wonder no more! The answer is simple...your skin tone! Just like matching your clothes or your home decor, the colors on your face have to coordinate in order to work. Check out what I call the "Lipstick Law" below!
Super Pale Skin
What to try: Stapleton says your best bet is to go nude. Think peachy lipsticks and nude colored glosses. For a glam look with major impact, try red lipstick.
What to avoid: Dark chocolate and burgundy shades because they contrast too much with your pale skin.

Super Dark Skin
What to try: Stapleton says anything goes with darker complexions -- lucky girl. Try orange or coral shades for a fun pop of color and don't forget to load up on the gloss to showcase your full lips. Yes, everyone will be jealous, but that's kinda the point, right?
What to avoid: Stay away from milky or chalky colors with a lot of white in them because they're too contrasting -- unless you're going for a mod '60s look, which would be pretty cool.
