6 Lipstick Colors Every Woman Should Own

Nude - Pick a color close to your natural lip shade but about two shades darker. This will give your lips natural definition and make you look put together without being too obvious. Nude lipstick also provides a great blending option to soften brighter or deeper colors.

True Red - Every woman should own a classic red lipstick. It's all about finding the right undertone to flatter your skin. Are you cooler or warmer? Try a few and see which one feels and looks the best. Choose a red with blue undertones if your skin has olive or yellow undertones for a brightening effect.

Bright Pink - You'll want to wear this as an alternative to red for a fun effect. Blend with a nude lip color for a softer pink that will still give your face some flattering color.

Orange - Orange is incredibly chic and unexpected - and a great shade for summer, when skin color tends to get a little more golden.

Coral - For a great daytime look, opt for coral and go stronger or softer based on your skin tone. Corals are beautiful throughout spring and summer.

Wine - For a sultry pout, try lightly applying a shade of wine with your fingertips. Or, for a more dramatic effect, fully line and fill in your lips, particularly in the fall. Make sure to balance the rest of your face with contouring and bronzer.
