Medium, Olive or tanned Asian skin tones: 

If you have a fairly tanned, olive-based skin tone, you can pretty much pull off most shades of pink. The ultimate shades that'll look fab against your skin are ones containing warm, deep pinky brown tones or popping coral pink shades. If you want a more natural look, go for a nude-y pink.

Deep or Black skin tones:

If you have a deep skin tone or black skin, then you can have the most fun with pink lipsticks. Any kind of bright and bold pinks look amazing on dark skin - especially magenta, orange and fuchsia type shades. For an everyday shade, try a lighter, purple-toned pink.
