How to Pick the Perfect Lipstick For Your Mood

When you’re feeling fancy, you don’t wear sneakers and when you’re feeling relaxed, you don’t slip on stilettos. So, shouldn’t the same rules apply to your lipstick? Whether you’re up, down or somewhere in between, we’re helping you match the way you feel to the way you look with a lip color for every mood. Because if you always felt the same way, you would have a much smaller makeup bag!

daring, lipstick by mood

Try a new look that proves two colors are better than one. Create an ombre lip by tracing your lip line with a dark pencil. Next, fill in the center of your lips with a similar, but lighter shade of lipstick. Pat your lips together and — voilà! — you’re looking bolder already.

flirtacious, lipstick by mood

No color says, “ready for love” more than red. Whether it’s a first date or a special night with your longtime beau, a rouge lip sets the scene for romance. Plus a bright shade with a satiny finish is 100% kissable.

laidback, lipstick by mood

Enhance your natural beauty with a cool, nude lip. Choose a shade that’s similar to your skin tone, but with a touch of pink. A formula that moisturizes and rejuvenates lips can even double as a lip balm throughout the day.

Try: Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color in Mod, Pink Buff or Pink Sand

Upgrade your workweek look with a beautiful berry lip. Shades from a light raspberry to a deep wine command attention in the boardroom and beyond. A liquid matte lipstick ensures your color lasts from that first sip of coffee until your final meeting of the day.

  1. As far as I’m concerned, one can never go wrong with a gorgeous nude lip. It can carry off any bold or smokey eye with aplomb. I’m especially fond of Bobbi Brown’s Pink Buff!

  2. Really great article! Will be purchasing Sad Girl or Craft. Are they the same color? If not, which one is the model wearing?

    1. Hi Analisa. The model is wearing the shade Sad Girl — you can view all of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick shades, including Craft, at this link: – Nora at Macy’s
