Best and cheapest beauty tricks? A new lipstick. Do you belong to those who don’t date to use one? Then it’s time to read this article. Fix the perfect mouth and find your new favorite lipstick shade.
Most women settle for some lip gloss. It’s a shame – because a nice lipstick can really lift your whole look – especially after 40!
It is now that the lips become extra satisfied if they get some help to fix both the shape and the fullness. A color look gives your face life and definition. At the same time, your lips look bigger because most lipsticks also replenish with care and nutrition.
So do you dare to start using lipstick! It will not look that much at all, even though it feels unusual at first. Inspired by young cool girls, like Nora’s red lips in the “Shame” success series.
Just remember to check your skin tone first, as it is the one that decides which shade is the right one for you.
How to know what skin tone you have:
Don’t know if you are hot or cold in the skin? Do our simple skin test.
- Stand in daylight and watch the wrist veins.
- If they look blue/purple, then you have a cold skin tone.
- If they are greener then your skin tone is warm.
Your skin tone is: golden
Your best colors: peach, mango, apricot, coral and warm red tones.
If your skin is so warm that it is almost golden, it is important to turn up the heat in your lipstick colors.
Your best lipsticks are in the warm red part of the color range, in good company with orange, coral and glowing red that have been threatened with a hefty dose of yellow. It sounds awesome – and is absolutely fab on the lips.
When you prefer a more muted look, opt for a warm nude with a dash of peach.
Colors you don’t fit in: Pure pink and cool red tones. They are simply too cold. Your golden skin is so much warmer in tone than light skin, and the difference between lips and skin becomes so great that the result becomes purely undressing.
Your skin tone is: warm & light
Your best colors: bright red, tomato red, brown, and brown pink.
You who have warm, light skin should choose lipstick from the warm part of the color range. There are colors that come in orange, yellow or brown. Brown pink lipsticks are perfect for you, but you should watch out for very dark, brown tones that provide a far too strong contrast to your pale skin.
Bright red shades, on the other hand, flatter your skin tone a little extra. Take advantage of it!
Colors you don’t fit in: Shock pink and carrier colors. Both colors are too cool and will collide with your warm light skin.
Your skin tone is: cold & light
Your best colors: Light red, pink tones from pale to bleak, berry colors like raspberries and cherries.
If you have a light complexion with cold undertones, it is best to match with lipstick which is also cool in tone. Your best lipsticks have a dose of blue pigment, as they give the colors the coolness needed.
Of course, not all your lipsticks need to be brightly colored. The main thing is that they keep a cool tone basically.
Colors you don’t fit in: Beige and brown. These are colors that wash away any color you have on your skin and make you look glowy and unwashed.
