Applying a bold lip color is a great way to add glam to an already polished makeup look. Choosing the right shade is essential for a beautiful finish that will complement your complexion. If you're not sure how intense you want your lip color to be, build it up layer by layer until you find your desired shade, then set it in place to achieve a flawless, long-lasting finish.
Choose a lip color that will flatter your complexion
When deciding on a lip color, you'll want to choose a shade that will complement your skin-tone. With such a wide range of color options, it can be difficult to choose the perfect shade, so to help you narrow down your selection, look into the colors that are most likely to flatter your complexion.
You want to determine the undertone of your skin so that you pick a shade that's flattering but also one that looks great against your skin-tone.
For skin with cool undertones choose lip colors with a bluish, purply undertone, if your skin tone is warmer opt in for colors with a red-orange undertone. Neutral skin can pull off any shade, colors such as mauve and various shades of red look good on a wide range of complexions.
Choosing your color
Go with what look you're trying to achieve
Before choosing your shade, consider what style you're looking to achieve and base your selections off of that. For example: If you desire a natural look you may decide to choose flesh tones such as soft pinks, nudes, tans, and browns. However, if your goal is to be edgy, your choices might incorporate dark wine, purple, brown, or even black.
If you're feeling empowered, opt in for a red lip to project power and confidence, choose a red with bluish undertones to help your teeth appear whiter.
Choosing your desired finish
Now that you've chosen your shade, determine your desired texture or finish, are you into mattes, creams, shimmers or stains? Once you figured that out then you can start experimenting with various formulas that spark your interest. For example, if you're looking for a slight sheen that feels comfortable on your lips you might decide to go with a cream lipstick. On the other hand, if you prefer less shine with a smooth texture, you might opt in for a non-drying matte. There are many options for you to choose from, it's up to you to find the best product for your style and personality.
