How to choose a lipstick shadeHOW TO CHOOSE A LIPSTICK SHADE
Choosing the right shade of lipstick is not as simple as it seems. Know more about choosing a lipstick colour that is made just for you.
It was Saturday and Madhu decided to go shopping with her friend. She went to a popular cosmetic shop in the mall close by to her place. She was amazed to see the amazingly endless lipstick collection in the store. She glanced over different lipstick colours and finally picked up three shades that she liked. But did she choose the right shades?
The lipstick shade that you pick should compliment yours skin tone and your lip colour. All your efforts of applying lipstick perfectly are of no use if the shade of your lipstick is mistaken. The right shade makes a lot of difference in the appearance and overall personality. You may be a shade away to get luscious lips.
How to test a lipstick shade?
Never use a test lipstick on your lips, doing this can be quite unhygienic. Many of us have a habit of testing lipstick shade on the back of our hand. Testing a lipstick shade on the back of the hand can deceive you and you might end up buying a shade that is not made for you. The best way to test your lipstick colour is testing it on your fingertips.
Test your lipstick shade in the bright light or a natural sunlight so that you will not be misguided by one shade for another. Once testing part is over you heads closer towards getting creamier lips.
Lipstick shade for fair skin
Pick up the lighter shades of pink and orange if you have combination of fair skin and light hair. You can also go for colours like peach and beige. If you have fair skin and dark hair then you should pick up shades of deep pink and caramel to complement the combination. Any lipstick shade will go with medium skin and hair tone but it is better to go for lighter shades to show up the richness of the skin.
Lipstick shade for dark skin
Plum or wine lipstick complements the dark skin perfectly. If you are blessed with an olive skin tone then you can experiment with reds and light browns. If you have dark skin tone then go for matte finish than frosted ones. Keep away from bright reds and pinks and colour your lips with medium and dull shades. Shades of blackberry, caramels and purples are meant for the dusky skin tone.
