Tips to choose the right lipstick shade for yourself


Tip #1 How to find the perfect lip color? Understand your skin tone!


Broadly, there are 3 types of skin tones- a) dusky/indian skin tone  b) medium/olive/wheatish skin tone and c) fair skin tone. Before buying a lipstick, do a quick online research whether it suits your skin tone or not.


Tip #2 Make sure your lip color matches the color of your teeth


If you have white teeth you can choose to wear any lip color you like but if you have yellow teeth avoid applying purple, brown, bright scarlet and red shades.


Tip #3 Check the size of your lips


If you have thin lips avoid using dark lipstick colors because they will highlight the exact size of your lips or make them look even thinner. Instead, try using creamy and glossy lipsticks.


If you have plump lips do the opposite by using dark colored lipsticks and avoid using creamy or glossy lipsticks.


Tip #4 Use your veins to understand your undertone


Which lipstick shade should you wear also depends upon your undertone. If you have green colored veins then it means you have warm toned skin. If you have blue or purple veins then it means you have cool toned skin. Moreover, if you cannot clearly identify the color of your veins between either blue or green then you have a neutral skin undertone.


Tip #5 Try it on your face rather than on your wrists


All the stores offer you to try lipstick shades on your wrists so that you can be sure that it matches your skin tone. However, sometimes the color of your wrists doesn’t match with your face and this way you end up buying the wrong lip color. From next time, try the lipstick on your face to ensure that its the perfect match.
