What you should know from the onset is that these ideas might be difficult to find in a single lipstick for your lips.
Follow these tips to have an amazing adventure in finding the right lipstick for your lips.
- Make your lips pronounced: When applying lipstick, the end goal is to make your lips pronounced. You want your lips to look voluptuous and noticed. I’m not sending you to go and apply lipstick made of neon colours (although I would love to see how that would look on you). But what I want you to know is that, in order to make your lips pronounced, you should pick colours that are a bit contrasting to your skin tone. Those lips need to be noticed, and that contrast is what would make you achieve that.
- Avoid lifeless colours: The least lifeless colours will do to your lips is to make them dull. To avoid this at all cost, you can have a combination of bright or bold colours as undertone for dark skinned women. Brown and purple are currently in style and it looks great on dark skinned women. But if you’re light skinned, you should always opt for lively colours.
- Test it on your lips: You’d surprised at how a certain colour will look on your lips in comparison to its bottle colour.
So, when searching for the right colour for your lips, you should consider testing it on your lips first before you’d rule it out. This change is as a result of your lips pH. The pH oxidizes the colour and gives a different colour shade, in some cases almost entirely.
- Two is better: It’s nothing new that applying more colour shades of lipstick is more effective than one. This recommendation is peculiar or dark skinned women. Pick two colours and see the unmistakable blend of colours.
With the above tips, you can explore your creativity and create that perfect colour shade for your lips.
