    Ask a red-lipstick lover what her greatest beauty fear is and chances are she'll respond, "Pastel lipstick." After all, when you're used to a bold lip, the idea of a lighter option can be quite terrifying. But, instead of sacrificing impact, the latest pack of pastels actually maintains the statement-making quality we've come to love from our crimson favorites.

    The secret to making a pale shade pop? The lipstick should be matte with a lot of white in it. The white will make it opaque enough to deliver the ultimate color payoff, and the texture allows for more even application.

    To really bring maximum impact, though, be sure to choose a hue that complements your complexion. Fortunately, there's a whole host of spring-ready pastels perfect for every skin tone, from light pink to tangerine to lilac. But, rather than just tell you which one is best for you, we thought we'd show you, using our staffers as models.

    Click through to see the shades makeup artist Kim Weber selected for each different, gorgeous face. Then, go forth and find your signature spring lipstick.
