I have never really been a lipstick person until a few years ago as you wouldn’t have seen me out with any kind of lipstick on (I only ever used chap stick) I just thought no colour suited my skin tone, but that all changed when I decided that I’ll just go for it and buy a neutral colour.
The very next day I decided to wear it and I’m so glad I did as I got so many compliments that day (It was so good.!) even my partner thought I looked good.! ( That’s a bonus especially coming from him.) So ever since that day I have been wearing lipstick on a regular basis.
I have done a bit of research and have put together this list to help you pick out which lipstick suits your skin tone, so next time your standing in the makeup aisle it wont take twice as long to choose the perfect colour.
Lipstick comes in different formula’s that can really impact your look. Also the condition of your lips can play a major role on how you lipstick applies.
Very on trend at the moment, and can look bold and beautiful. If you have dry, flaky lips the colour will go in all the cracks and lines on your lips, and that’s not a nice look. Matte lipsticks are also known to be very drying on the lips.
The perfect choice for dry lips, will help your dry lips to feel soft and even a little plumper and will be so much more comfortable on the lips.
This kind of lipstick will stay on for hours and will survive a whole day, even drinking and eating. So if you don’t like to re apply this is the lipstick for you.
These lipsticks have a glittery finish and light-reflecting properties, probably more suitable for a night on the town with your girlfriends.
Whenever applying lipstick, exfoliate your lips before applying your lipstick as it will on and look fabulous.
WHAT IS YOUR SKIN TONE
Fair skin looks the best with red, red with pink undertones, magenta and blue-toned pinks. Fair skin often has a hard time wearing a nude lip. NOTE: colours tend to look brighter on paler skin tones.
MEDIUM/ OLIVE SKIN
Medium to colour skin looks best with true pinks, cranberries, brick-red and classic nudes.
Dark skin often is best suited for reds with burgundy or brown, dark beige, orange-toned reds and pinks.
I really hope this information was useful. Please tell me what kind of lipsticks do you like in the comments below.
Hope everyone has an awesome day. 🙂
