In principle, you can rely on this general rule: if you have a rather intense and dark-colored skin-eye-hair mix, you can stay on a pink lipstick with strong and decisive colors, ranging from shocking pink to Indian pink up to raspberry and strawberry pink, if, on the contrary, you have soft colors, it is better to stick to delicate nuances, such as light pink, flesh pink, antique pink and pastel. But also pay attention to the undertones: it is better to combine warm undertones with warm and bright pinks and cold undertones with colder pinks.
