How many time you find yourself staring at the mirror and looking down on your shelves of mattes lipstick collection, yet, you’re feeling lost, confuse and questioning your choice? There are so many different undertones and finishes that make a trip to find a perfect look seem more like a never-ending task than a fun jaunt.
Hopefully, with these few key guidelines, it’ll be easier for you to find the best lip color for your skin tone.
Know Your Skin TONE
It seems to be pretty basic, but not everyone realizes their skin undertone. This little detail can go far in many fields of beauty and fashion. Most people will fall into one of two categories: warm or cool undertone. Those with cool undertones tend to have fairer skin, while those with warm undertones have a golden or olive hue. If you find it really hard to determine your undertone, there’s a chance you’re neutral (a mixture of both).
If you have a pink, red, or bluish hue to your skin, most likely you are a cool tone. If the veins in your wrist look blue or a silver jewelry complements your tone, you can tell that your tone is cool.
Lip colors with blue- or purple-shaded undertones look best on you. So, when you go to choose a red lip, stay away from orangey shades and veer more toward deep-bluish reds. Be careful with shades that are too light, as they can wash you out.
If you have a yellow or golden hue to your skin, most likely, you have a warm undertone. You can tell your undertone is warm if the veins in your wrist look green or if gold jewelry complements your skin.
Lip colors in warm shades will look best. So, go for really red colors.
Those with neutral undertones look good in both silver and gold jewelry, and a wide spectrum of colors typically tend to complement your skin. For you, everything will go nicely on you
