By Kate on 23 May 2012
We let you know what lipstick colors to look for to find the best shade for you.
With so many lipstick options available today, it can be very overwhelming when you’re in the makeup department trying to choose the right shade. What looks great on the lipstick tube or the promotional posters hanging everywhere might not look so great on you when you get it home. If this sounds familiar, then take a look at the following advice and use it to help you choose the right lipstick shade.
What to Consider…
The most flattering lipstick shade will ideally match your skin tone and work well with your eye color and hair color. These three factors are what will help you to determine the right lipstick choice.
For those with a deeper skin tone, warm browns, caramels, coffees and deep pinks are a good choice.
If your skin tone is on the olive side, give brownish reds, plums, dark berry shades and chocolate tones a try.
Those with brown eyes will get the most benefit from lipsticks that are red, brown and pink.
For blue eyes, look for pinks and anything beige-tinged.
For green eyes, orange, red or brown.
Brunettes should opt for warm reds, pinks, lilacs and brownish-tones.
Redheads, give glossy bronzes, oranges and sheer beige and brown-reds a try.
For black hair, bold colors such as raspberry pink, red, coral, berry and bright plums will give your hair color some pop.
