How to Choose the Right Lipstick Colour?
Finding the perfect lipstick is an easy task even though you might have heard that it might not be easy. Currently, there is a wide range of types in terms of colours, textures, applications and brands, and, this is maybe what doesn’t help you make the right decision.
The part of choosing a flattering lipstick shade is possibly the most complicated since not all colours look good on your face from one brand to another. But, this is not your problem, and it doesn’t mean you can’t wear that colour you liked, and you felt in love with. You can always look for that “colour” that stole your heart, just in a different brand until you find the one that will finally suit you.
Lipsticks are just like hair dyes, the same colour won’t look the same on you from a brand to another, so just find the one that suits you the most.
The most important thing you need to know and keep in mind while choosing your Lipstick is knowing that the way you try it influences how your Lipstick will look on you. Try your Lipstick on your wrist better than your hand, since they tend to tan more than the face.
Another trick is to test it on your fingertip.
Take into account the clothes, accessories or makeup that you are going to wear when trying them in the store, they will already affect the way the Lipstick will look. Try to wear clothes in neutral colours and little makeup. You should also pay attention to the light, as they do not look the same under fluorescent light as they do in direct sunlight. Try it under different lights to see how the colour changes.
Finally, do not forget to check if your Lipstick has SPF protection or hydration, so you will look protected and cared for lips as well as perfect.
Another thing you need to remember is that choosing a good brand that has a wide variety of types of Lipsticks and tones, will really help you find the colour you are looking for, as you can find the same colour in different tones that you can slightly notice, however, on the skin will look different.
Don’t be afraid of trying bright colours!
