Ever since Pantone crowned “Living Coral” its color of the year, the favorite spring hue has been popping up everywhere. We’ve seen it in home decor and fashion, and no surprise, beauty. One of the easiest ways to incorporate this cheery color into your every day is with makeup. We love vibrant blushes and creamy eyeshadows, but we’re especially into the best coral lipsticks. 

How to Find the Best Coral Lipstick for You

As with any lipstick color, some shades tend to look better on certain skin tones. So whether you’re fair, olive or dark-skinned, follow these tips to find the best coral lipstick for you.

Best Coral Lipstick for Fair Skin: If you have lighter skin, a peachy, nude-based coral will bring out rosy undertones and give you a youthful and healthy-looking flush. Also consider a more muted melon — a matte formula pops against fair tones without looking garish. 

Best Coral Lipstick for Olive Skin: Try an orange-toned coral to balance any green pigments in your skin. Bonus: The subtle blue undertones in these shades will neutralize the yellow in your teeth and give you an instantly brighter smile. 

Best Coral Lipstick for Dark Skin: A vibrant red coral will add a pretty punch and instant warmth to a deeper complexion. Add a sheen of a gloss to reflect light and optically blur lip lines.
