Not all lip-colors can look good on everyone. Not all lip-color choices are right for you. Not all types of lip make-up are ideal for you. In order to get those luscious looking lips that you see on models and actresses in magazines, online, and on TV, you first need to choose the right lip-product, the right lip-color, and know how to apply this.
Find out what your skin’s undertones are – there is an easy way to figure out what your skin undertones are. What you need to do is to stand in natural light and to look at the veins found in your inner wrist. Those with warm skin undertones will find their veins more greenish in color, while those with cool skin undertones will see this in a bluish hue.
Choose your shade according to undertones and skin tones – apart from using undertones to determine the right shade of lip color, you also need to consider your skin tone in doing this. For example, fair skinned individuals with a warm undertone should go for pale and peach-hued lip colors, while those with a cool undertone should choose more earthy shades. Dark and too bright lip colors should be avoided by fair skinned individuals.
Choose the right tool and product according to your lip-color application expertise – aside from choosing the right shades for your lips, you also need to find the right kind of product and delivery method for yourself. There are a few options in this department, and some are best suited for beginners while others are only ideal for those who have expert lip color application skills. For newbies, a gloss type lip color that is applied with a lip wand is ideal. For intermediate users, a thin lipstick is considered the best applicator. If you are in the advanced category however, using a combination of tools that include lip brushes, liners, and finishes can be easy for you.
