What is the first thing that comes in your mind when you think about makeup? Lipstick, of course!
There are tons of lovely lipsticks out there, varying in shades, texture, tones, and finishes. Adding the perfect color to the lips can make a big difference to your facial features, just like an awful shade of lipstick can ruin your whole look. So, that’s why it is critically important to pick a shade of lipstick that works best with your skin tone and looks good to go with your overall look. Picking up the ideal shade apparently seems like an impossible task, unless you are one of those fortunate ones that rock every style every time.
We know we sound a little dramatic, but if you have found your perfect shade, then you know what we are talking about. And if you’ve not made the right choice yet, then don’t worry. You are not in this alone. The key to finding your ride or die lipstick shade is all about knowing your skin’s natural undertone. Being aware of your skin tone makes picking up the right lipstick shade completely foolproof and easy.
The three main natural skin tone categories are warm, cool, and neutral.
People with warm undertone usually
- Get suntan easily and quickly.
- Can rock brown, red, strawberry blonde, or black hair.
- Looks better in gold jewelry.
- The veins on their wrist look green. The yellowish tone of your skin gives blue veins the appearance of having a green tinge.
Lipstick Shades for Warm Undertones
So, the rule is simple; if you have a warm undertone, then pick lipsticks that also have warm undertones. Easy, no? More summery shade lipsticks are the pick for you, which includes reddish, orangey, peachy, or even yellowish that tends to lean towards peachy hues such as gold, copper, and coral to browns. All these red and orange tones, rosy pink and peachy pink shades will compliment your skin tone best and will complete your look.
People with cool undertones usually
- Get tan very slowly but get sunburn quickly
- Ace the look with silver jewelry
- Can rock blonde, brown and black hair
- The veins on their wrist look blue
Lipstick Shade for Cool Undertones
The rule remains the same, if you know that your undertone is cool, then opt for lipstick shades that also have cool undertones.
Cool shade lipsticks include plum, mauve, cherry, purple, and crimson that will enhance the blue, red, and pink hue of your skin.
People with neutral undertone usually have both warm and cool undertones’ characteristics, they
- Don’t typically burn but get tanned slowly
- Both gold and silver compliments their skin tone
- The veins on their wrist look green and blue
- Wide range of hair color suits your skin tone
Lipstick Shade for Neutral Undertones
The sky is the limit for you, ladies! Anything from light nudes to deep wines kind of shade will look good on you. You can try lipstick with pinkish hue for fair skin, mauve shades for medium tone, and plum or berry colors for deep skin tone.
