Choosing the right long lasting lipstick can get confusing easily. Here is a guide to help you choose the right shade for your skin tone as well as some of the best long last lipsticks to go with it.
Finding the right shade
Complementing your skin tone
In order to find the perfect shade, you need to know what your skin tone is. The easiest way to do this is to look at the veins in your wrist. On cool or pale skin, the veins are clearly blue. On warmer skin tones, the veins are less obvious or green tinted.
Colours for cool skin tone Most lipstick shades go with fair skin, but only certain tones enhance the skin.
-Deep plum reds
-Soft berry tones
-Mocha brown Avoid: Hot pink
-Reds with orange undertones
Colours for warm skin tones Deep colours look great on warm tones, but some colours do not complement the skin at all. Choose:
-Creamy coffee browns
-All shades of pink in matte, cream, and sheers Avoid:
-Light pale browns Brighten your teeth The right lipstick colour can brighten your teeth, even if they are a little yellow. Colours with blue undertones will make the teeth seem brighter than they are.
Avoid any colours in the coral or orange family They make yellow teeth stand out more. Look at the time of day The time of day you wear your lipstick helps determine the best shade also. Office hours –Pinks, creamy, and warm shades look best under the harsh lighting in most workplaces. Evening hours – Warm skin tones, such as an olive tone, can wear bright colours like brick red in the evening. Women with cool tones can wear bold tones like fuchsia.
