When it comes to lipstick shades, you will be presented with a plethora of choices. Choosing the perfect lipstick color isn’t going to be a walk in a park. You have dark hues, matte colors, glitters and much more. You will have to take factors like skin color, tone, undertone and much more into account. So, what should you do when you have such an overwhelming number of options?
The answer is simple! You go to the experts! Contributed by Leecosmetic lipstick factory, this guide is going to explain to you in detail how to choose lipstick colors. Below, we have explained all of the factors that should impact your decision-making.
1- Selection based on 4 main skin tones:
Before we get to the juicy part from Leecosmetic, you will have to understand the differences between skin tone and undertone to pair the lipstick color that will make you look good.In simple words, the color of your skin is skin tone, while the subtle hues present beneath your skin are known as undertones.
There are 4 types of skin tones i.e, Fair, Medium, Tan, Deep. On the other hand there are three types of undertones i.e, cool, warm and neutral. How to tell the difference among all? Flipping the wrist is the answer: You have cool undertone if your veins on the underside of your wrist appear blue or purple. Should it be warm undertone normally you will see green or olive veins. If it’s hard to tell blue or green, it indicates neutral undertone.
If you want to choose a lipstick shade that looks perfect on you, you will have to take into account both your skin color and skin tone.When you are choosing your lipstick shades for skin tone, don’t make the mistake of ignoring your undertone. It might not be as obvious, but the lipstick shades will sit perfectly with your skin.
We can understand that if you are a bit confused right now, but don’t be! Following is a table that can help you understand this concept fully.
|COOL||Pink, Beige, Coral, Bold Red||Cranberry, Red, Coral, nude
