Many people find it hard to choose the right lipstick shades to complement their skin tone. However, it is much easier than it looks, the most flattering lip tones will be one or two shades darker than your natural lip colour. With services like Match Made Lipstick Service for No7 at boots, you really can't go wrong, but for those of you pushed for time, below is a small guide to help you find that perfect lipstick shade.

Fair skin tends to look great in shades such as nude, pink and light corals. Rimmel's Kate Matte lipstick in Vibrant Coral 110 will look beautiful with light skin tones and help to make more of a statement.  

Medium skin tones can go a bit darker. You'll look great in rose, mauve and berry. Not forgetting those bright reds as well but for a change consider a deep burgundy instead, H&M's matt lipstick in burgundy is a very popular shade.

Dark or black skin suits more deep plum or chocolate shades. L'Oreal Paris color riche in toffee chocolate 276 will be a perfect suitor to dark skin. 

However, the best thing about make up is creativity, especially with lipstick. So mix it up a little and be daring, try shades you wouldn't normally try. Even black lipstick can look amazing paired with certain outfits, although if you are going to go for this keep your eyes simple. Barry M Lip Paint in Black £4.49 is highly recommended if you are daring enough. While the colours above will help compliment your skin tone sometimes in life you just have to make a statement and what better way to do it than with lipstick?
