Whereas berry, cherry red or mauve shades will definitely stand out with you medium complexion. And when we talk about lip color for dark skin, you should go for anything like dark red, deep pink shades except for brown shades.

If they are green, you have a warm undertone and if they are blue, you have a cool undertone. But if you have both green and blue veins, then voila! You are neutral.
3. Lip size and shape
Want to flatter everyone with that gorgeous lip? Don’t look over the shape of your lips. If you have plumper and fuller lips then avoid lip shades that are too light, try matte finish lips. If you have thinner lips then never go for a dark lip color, as it will only make your lip shape look thinner and try glosses, shimmery lipsticks.
