Lipstick is a powerful thing once you know how to use it. It can completely change your look from meh to WOW! The trouble is, finding that perfect shade for you is confusing process. Here are some tips for finding that lip color for you. Find a color that is one to two shades deeper than your natural lips. 1. Determine your skin tone: fair, medium, olive, or dark. - For fair skin: coral reds or dark reds with pink undertones. - For medium or olive skin: pink and cranberry shades, and brick reds. - For dark skin: reds with burgundy or brown tones. 2. Buying lipstick in the store: - Try the lipstick on before you buy it. The color on the box or container can often be deceiving. - Remove one lip color completely before trying on the next. Otherwise, you will be mixing multiple colors together. - Try on lipstick with little or no other makeup on your face. Other makeup can be distracting and prevent you from judging the lipstick itself. - Ask for someone else's opinion!
