    1 / 11 Whether you like a sheer gloss or a bold bright lip, there is a shade of pink that will flatter any Asian skin tone.

    While most people play it safe by sticking to rosy shades, there is an entire range of pinks that have the potential to brighten your complexion. So how exactly should you select pink lipsticks? For starters, if you prefer something subtle, look for pink shades that have beige or brown undertones. These options will likely not pop, but they will do a great job in evening out any discolourations on your lips. From there, you can play around with different textures and finishes – sheer or glossy ones will be great for weekends or making your lips look poutier while satiny or matte textures tend to look more sophisticated.

    If you don’t mind trying something bolder, opt for pinks that have red or orange undertones. This will ensure that they do not wash you out like bubblegum pink shades might. And if you’re feeling adventurous, try deeper or darker pinks for a dramatic effect. Here, all the best pink lip colours that will flatter Asian skin tones.
