Those with deep skin tones shouldn’t be intimidated by blackberry lips. If your skin has blue undertones, like supermodel Alek Wek, choose a blue-toned blackberry. If you’re more bronze, like Nyong’o, swipe a sheer bronze gloss over top any blackberry hue.

If you tan easily and have greenish veins, your skin likely has yellow undertones. Choose brown or gold berry lipsticks to complement your glow. For the best colour match, test shades on the pads of your fingers, instead of the back of your hand.

If your skin tends to burn and your veins look bluish at your wrists, you probably have pink undertones. Try a pinkish berry lipstick to pick up the rosiness in your face. For a more natural look, try sheer products. Opaque brights will bring on the drama.
