It’s very common to find people who wear the wrong lipstick and end up looking like clowns. Wearing the wrong shade of lipstick can ruin your make up and your entire look. Here’s how to get it right.
1, The easiest way to find the ideal lip color for you is to choose colors that are one or two shades darker than your natural lip color, according to makeup artist Bobbi Brown.
2, Experiment with shades of pink. Pink looks good on all skin tones, and works with most outfits and hairstyles.
3, Keep it simple. During the day, the idea is to look as natural as possible unless of course you are attending an event.
4, Enhance not Distort. Lipstick like all make up is meant to enhance your look not change it totally. The art of wearing lipstick is that it looks like real lips enhanced not something artificial.
For Red Lipstick:
The secret to choosing the right red lip color is in the undertones. Pink-skinned girls should opt for cherry red. Those with olive skin can wear fire-engine red. Dark skin looks great with deep reds.
Step 1, Determine your skin tone: fair, medium, olive, or dark.
Step 2, Find the right color for your skin tone:
For fair skin: coral reds or dark reds with blue undertones.
For medium or olive skin: pink and cranberry shades, and brick reds.
For dark skin: reds with burgundy or brown tones.
Most importantly, try on lipsticks before buying, ask for advice from people who share your skin tone and ask for professional help too.
