Pucker up—your lips might be sealed, but they're doing a lot of talking about you! "Any way you look at it, lipstick is the ultimate accessory," says makeup artist Michelle Lo Conte, owner of Pink Comb Salon. In fact, it can actually make or break your look. So what does your lipstick say about you? Our makeup experts weigh in...

Muted, neutral colors are the best tone in an office setting. "A woman looks 'done,' but it's not too much for the daytime," says Lo Conte. In other words, she's approachable and professional.

Pucker up pointer: Women young and old can pull off this color, indefinitely. Fair, medium and dark skin tones can all wear muted pinks since there are so many different shades included in this color family.
