how to FIND YOUR PERFECT SHADE

Posted on 18 June 2017

LOOKING FOR YOUR PERFECT LIPSTICK COLOUR?
Look no further, here are our tips to help you can track it down…

• Put it in neutral. The most versatile lipstick you can own is a shade that’s just a bit brighter than your natural lip colour. It will even out and define your lips the way a subtle coat of mascara draws attention to your eyes. For some people, that colour is a peachy brown or rosy pink. Keep in mind that a neutral lipstick shouldn’t be the colour of concealer (a look that only works on the runway) and that a matte lipstick that is lighter than your natural lip colour will wash out your face.

• Try it right. Use the middle of your lower lip as a guide when looking for the right colour, and try lipstick on in the daylight for the most accurate assessment. If you’ve tested more than three or four shades, take a break—your lips will be stained. You may also need to find a new colour if you’ve been out in the sun a lot, since your lips might be darker.

• Know yourself. The colour of your lips affects the way a lipstick looks. If you see your friend wearing a great colour, don’t assume it will be right for you. Her shade might look ashy or muddy on your lips.

• Mix it up. Every season has its lipstick trend, and just because your perfect colour is a pinky beige, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear deep burgundy. Apply one coat of your neutral, then add a thin coat of wine, burgundy, or any other colour you want to try on top. Even the craziest lipstick shade can be adjusted to suit your colouring.
