How to Choose the Best Lipstick to Match Your Skin.
Do you always find yourself wondering, “Umm what lipstick should I wear?” or “what color suits me best?” Don’t worry, you came to the right place, there are so many different undertones, even as an expert, it’s not that easy digging for a new shade. All you need are a few guidelines and you will see its easy choosing lipstick to match your skin tone.
First of all identify your skins undertone. Most people are either cool or warm. The ones with a warm undertone tend to have a golden hue while the ones with cool have lighter fairer skin. Neutral skin tone is a mixture of warm and cool.
Below are some tips to help you choose the best lip color
You have a cool tone if your hue is bluish, red or pink. Especially if your veins are blue, or if your skin gets burnt easily. If silver jewellery complements your skin you have a cool undertone.
The best lipsticks to use for this undertone is blue or purple. Not the actual blue/purple lipstick. An example is if you’re going for a red lipstick you can maybe go for deep bluish red (cherry red) instead of one that’s more like orange.
For nude lips, the best color would be pink nude, rosy nude or taupe beige.
How can you know if you have a warm undertone? You have a warm undertone if you have a yellow, olive or golden hue. You can tell if it’s warm if the veins are green and gold jewellery complements your skin and tans fast.
The best lipstick for this undertone, is lip color in warm shades. Warm shades such as brick red, bold orange or terracotta brown. Are you going for a nude? If your skin is lighter use pale nude or if it’s slightly darker use rich nude.
You are neutral undertone if you have a mixture of chocolate and a yellow base. This type looks good with either gold or silver jewellery. Try mauve shades, berry, maroon or burgundy.
The Final Word
You should note that skin tone and undertone are two different things. Skin tone means the depth of your skin (fair, medium, and dark/deep) and can vary depending on the season. It can be fairer during the cool months and darker during warm seasons.
Then there’s the undertone, which means the base of your skin. However, you should choose a lip color you feel most comfortable in just “rock it”
