Makeup is every woman’s must-have essential, and be it little or full, some make up is required on a day to day basis to keep you looking fresh and beautiful all day long. With so many cosmetics available in the market, it is difficult to know what to apply when. You have options of foundation, concealer, blush ons, nail polish, eye shades, eye liner, etc. But one of the most used cosmetics in the world is the lipstick. Lipsticks are a must have for all women and most of them own many shades and colors, for different looks and occasions.
Lipstick application makes the natural beauty of your face shine out even more. Like a perfume, women rarely step out of the house without some color on their lips. New trends dictate whatever color is in fashion and girls rush to grab the latest ones from stores.
Tips on Applying The Right Lipstick
Here we will give you some tips on applying the right lipstick:
Find a color that is slightly darker than your original lip tone. For this, simply apply the lipstick on your lower lip and compare it with your upper one. If the shade is too different, try some other color. You can also change the shape and fullness of your lips by choosing different shades. Dark shades make lips look small. Lighter shades add a plumpness to your lips.The finish also does the same. Matte makes lips thinner while lip gloss or shimmer shades make them look fuller.
You should also know your complexion and undertone because this will help you choose your lipstick color. You should try on a lot of shades and ultimately choose what suits you best. When you surf the internet you can find a lot of expert advice on what are the best lipsticks for your complexion. If you have fair or light skin, try light pink, coral, peach, nudes, or beige. If you have cool undertones, try a soft mocha and nude. Warm undertones, try pale pinks or a nude with a little peach. Girls with medium skin tone can try red, rose, mauve, or berry shades. Those with cool undertones should try shades of pink or cranberry. Warm undertones should experiment with copper or bronze.
Always try on the lipstick before you buy it. The testers in stores have a lot of people using them so spray them with alcohol first and then apply on lips using brushes or cotton buds. You can also try them out on your fist or wrists. Try them on when you have no other makeup applied. This will help you see whether the color is making your face look brighter or duller. Your lip color should always freshen your face up instead of wearing it down.
Be sure that your lip color does not match your clothes too closely, especially if you are wearing bright red or dark colored outfits. You will end up looking garish and overwhelming. Also if you are focusing on a dark and bright lip color, your eye makeup should be subtle with only a light liner and mascara doing the job. Lighter lip colors look great with dramatic eyes.
