Inclusivity has been a buzzword in the makeup world lately. We can thank Rihanna and her Fenty Beauty Collection for that. Only a few months ago, RiRi bestowed upon us a beauty line with no fewer than 40 different foundation shades for all skin types. Foundation aside, the inclusivity of the makeup line is most apparent in her video campaigns, which feature models of wildly varying skin tones. Moreover, Fenty Beauty isn’t the only beauty brand that caters to all skin tones. More and more makeup brands are expanding their products to include cosmetics designed for each and every skin color. It seems as though the acceptance of diversity and products of all inclusivity are the key beauty trend of the season.

So with inclusivity trending at the moment–and rightly so–everyone is dying to know what makeup products, specifically lipstick in this case, work universally across the spectrum of skin tones. Simply stated, what lipstick colors look amazing on every skin tone? The general consensus seems to be that peach, mauve, berry, and classic reds always look good on all kinds of skin tones. Here are the top lipstick colors we’ve found that look amazing across the board:

  1. M.A.C. Lipstick in Ruby Woo tops the list as the most popular and truly classic color. It is an essential red that is chic, matte, sophisticated, playful, and timeless. It is the perfect lipstick for every skin tone and every age with a beautiful finish that leaves us all giddy just thinking about it. It is definitely safe to say that this classic red color looks good on anyone it touches.
  2. Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow is a looks-good-on-everyone, rosy-peachy nude with striking shimmer and shine. In fact, the gloss is the only Fenty lip product available–but proven to be enough for all. I mean really, leave it to Rihanna to nix a variety of super velvety lippies or a precise matte range in favor of a standalone gloss that works for every skin tone. It’s subtle, sexy, and suitable for all looks.
  3. Nars Audacious Lipstick in Michiyo is a hot pink berry with cool undertones and a velvety, semi-matte texture. It also contains Vitamin E, locking in moisture. It is so very flattering on everyone that wears it and as an added bonus, makes your teeth look super white! The color isn’t your typical pink, which is why it works for every skin tone and is overall a great pop of color.
  4. Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Mauve Mist is a warm medium brown with a creamy matte finish. The color is a bit muted and has the perfect touch of rose to it so there is never a fear of things going murky on any skin tone. Nudes with rosy undertones are go-to when it comes to universally flattering lip colors. Moreover, the Mauve Mist color has a little edge to it, so it adds to the repertoire.

In the end, having an option that looks amazing on any and every skin tone is pretty thrilling. Exclusivity is still a personalized experience and definitely not going anywhere, but inclusivity seems to be harboring its own position in the makeup work as well. That is something each and every one of us can be proud of. Checkout for all of the universally flattering lipstick colors mentioned above. No woman or skin tone left behind–that’s the motto!
