Make-up artists recommend the pink shade because pink looks good on all skin color. Try to experiment with shades of pink, test on wearing it on a well lit area. It is wise to buy it as it works with most outfits and hairstyles.

If you have a fair skin, go for coral reds or dark reds with blue undertones. Pink and cranberry shades, and brick reds goes well for medium or olive skin, whilst reds with burgundy or brown tones will look impressive for dark skin.
