Women for blonde hair and fair skin are lucky as they can use any lipstick color including warm, rich and dark. Blondes look gorgeous in bright and colorful lipsticks as well as neutral colors. The fact is that lipstick colors for women with blonde hair vary on different factors due to the shade of their hair color, skin tone, eye color, teeth color, lip size, age, time of the day and lighting also effect and compliment each other.

Basic lipstick colors :

There are following basic lip colors:

Matte colors are more effective in dark colors, while light colors can be made luminescent  with gloss.

Lip size :

As far as the lip size is concerned , go lighter if you have thin lips and go darker if your lips are full.

Age :

For teenagers, light shades of lipstick colors are right choice. Young women can use rich lip colors while mature ones can use dark but don’t go for fleshy or vulgar; pastel lipstick colors are best for them.

Lighting :

Cold lighting : In cold lighting such as winter sky and neon light, avoid cold lipstick colors.
Warm lighting : In warm lighting for example yellow bulbs and candles, avoid brown lipstick shades.

Teeth :

With yellowish teeth avoid using  purple, brown, or bright red as these bright colors can sometimes make the teeth look yellow. Opt orange, natural pinks and very soft red with a touch of clear gloss.
