Finding the Ideal Shade of Lipstick

Finding the Ideal Shade of Lipstick

Finding the right shade of lipstick not only enhances your features, but can also reflect your mood and personality. A swipe of well-chosen lipstick can be all it takes to transform how you look and how you feel about yourself.  As we know, not all shades of lipstick suit everyone, some colors look different on different skin tones, that’s why the first thing you should do when choosing a lipstick is to determine your skin tone.

Determine if you are cool-toned or warm-toned.

Those considered to be cool-toned usually have brown or ash blond hair and blue or dark eyes, their skin have red undertones, tending to the pink. The warm-toned people have blond hair, green or hazel eyes and their skin has yellow undertone.

For those with warm skin tone warmer shades will look best like caramel, cappuccino, browns with hints of gold and bronze. Pinky, red, beiges will look best on cool-toned skins.
Use two different lipstick

One for the day and one for the evening. During the day wear a light shade and for the evening apply one with saturated shade like reds, bronzes, browns and corals. When wearing a strong lipstick colors, keep cheeks and eyes neutral, choose pale pinks, beige, browns and plums. This will complement the lips without drawing attention away from them for a truly fabulous look.
Always use a lip liner to define the lips
