How to Choose the Perfect Lipstick
When talking about makeup, picking out the colors is the key element that makes the difference between a successful makeup and an excellent one. And, as your lipsticks are always the center of attention, the color of the lipstick is very important. Here are few tips and tricks that could help you choose the perfect lipstick colors for you.
The easiest rule, whenever choosing a lipstick, is to opt for colors with maximum two shades darker than the natural color of your lips. The correct way to test it is to apply lipstick only on one lip. You found the perfect color if the lipstick is only one or two shades darker than your natural lip color.
If you are buying the lipstick or lip gloss and you can not test it, you can rely on the colors on the box. Put the box near your lips and compare the colors. The best thing would be to watch yourself in natural light, near a window.
You should also take into consideration in what situations you want to wear the lipstick. And don't forget the size of your lips. Dark colors can make lips look smaller, while light colors tend to make lips appear fuller.
There is another rule when choosing a lipstick and that is taking into account your skin tone, as well as the color of your eyes and hair.
How to choose the right red lipstick
Many women believe that they can not wear red lipstick. The secret stands in choosing the right undertones. If you have a fair complexion with reddish tones, opt for a cherry tone lipstick. You can also consider red with a pink undertone or a plum tone. If you have a darker complexion, bright red shades and red with berry to a cranberry undertone are the perfect option. A medium complexion is compatible with shades having mauve undertones and avoid red with orange tones. If you have a medium skin tone wear berry and brown tones.
