Picking The Correct Lip Color Can Now Be As Easy as 1, 2, 3!

Picking The Correct Lip Color Can Now Be As Easy as 1, 2, 3, by barbies beauty bits.

Lipstick is an amazing product to have in your makeup arsenal.  But selecting the best color can be a daunting task.  So today I’m going to give you some pointers on picking the correct lip color in 3 easy steps.

Step 1: Know What Color Looks Best With Your Skin Tone:

Fair Skin Tones:  This skin tone is a bit tricky as colors that are too pale can wash you out and colors that are too dark can be contrasting with your skin.  Hence, you want to stick to brighter colors as well as colors like plum reds, or even browns, can work.    

Medium/ Olive Skin Tones: This one is the easiest to work with.  You can use nudes, oranges, reds or pinks.

Darker Skin Tones:  You want to stick to deeper lipstick colors if you have this skin tone.  I’ve found that plums, reds and coffee browns work best.

Step 2: Know Your Undertone:

Yellow Undertones: WARM
  • 2 Colors that look best:  Orangish reds and bronze colors.
  • Colors to stay away from:  Colors with a purple undertone as they can bring out the yellow is your skin!
Pink/Red Undertones:  COOL
  • For a darker color, try a brick red & for a lighter color try a coral shade.
  • Colors to stay away from: Blue-based reds.
 **Nudes are flattering on almost all skin types

Step 3: Try Before You Buy:

Lipstick is one makeup item that you really need to try on, as one color may look awesome on one person and horrible on another.  Also, what a color may look like in the tube isn’t always the color it appears on your lips.   While they say testing a lip color on your finger is best,  as it is closest to your lip color, it can really be a pain in the butt.  So what is my solution? GlamSt.  It is a virtual makeup tester that has made it fun & liptastic! When I was going through the process of trying on different colors, I was really able to see what shades were flattering on my model and what colors were not. (you can see these below)

About GlamST: It is an app for iOS that allows you to discover new makeup by choosing the makeup you love and trying makeup on your photo. You can freely experiment from the comfort of your phone, and try on all the lipstick you want.  Simply snap a selfie, choose your style and see which lipstick you like the best.  Also, if you found a color you like,  it can be purchased right from Sephora with the app that is now NOW available!

Mauh, until next time!
