How to Choose the Best Lipstick Shade for You from Castamodel's blog

The Easiest, Most Perfect Method for Determining Your Ideal Lip Color


According to cosmetic artist Bobbi Brown, the most attractive lip colors will be one or two shades darker than your natural lip color.

Find a lipstick that looks nice on your face when you are wearing no makeup at all, Brown advised in her book, "Bobbi Brown Beauty," if she had to impart just one tip on choosing lip colors.

Apply lipstick or gloss on one lip to test out colors. You've found your shade if it is just one or two shades darker than your bare lip.

Yes, it really is that easy. What should you do if you like to purchase your lipsticks at a food store? Places you cannot try on lipsticks before purchasing, such as a store or department store? The color printed on the package is reliable. Simply place it near your lips and inspect it in the mirror while shopping. Or even better, observe the hue in a window where light from the outside comes in.

Always try before you buy, is what I advise. So, if you decide to buy a color from a pharmacy, find one with a lenient return policy, like Rite Aid.

Tight Lips? Avoid Wearing Dark Shades

Keep your lip color in the light to medium shade range if your lips are on the thinner side. Dark colors will simply highlight your tiny lips. The smoothness and gloss of tinted glosses and creamy lipsticks both increase plumpness.

How to Choose the Correct Red Shade

Many ladies hold the false belief that crimson lipstick is unwearable. Red lipstick transcends age and culture and is always in style. The undertones hold the key to selecting the ideal red lip color. Girls with pink skin should choose cherry red. Olive-skinned people may don fire-engine crimson. Deep reds look fantastic against dark skin. Red lipstick is a definite no-no: It's wise to avoid matching your lips to your attire.

Don't want to wear red lipstick all the time? I learned a quick tip from InStyle Magazine on how to apply a red lip color. With her finger, makeup artist Angela Levin applies red lipstick over Dr. Hauschka lip balm, which serves as a lip primer. The end product is a stunning ruby shine.

You hate the lipstick you just purchased, oh no!

Keep those lipsticks that are slightly off from being thrown away. By mixing lipsticks you don't like, you can produce a gorgeous lip color. Before applying lipstick, use a darker liner to muffle the brightness of an overly bright lip color.

When to Apply Lip Balm

When applying vibrant colors to the lips, use a lip brush. You must use a mirror and skilled application to avoid painting your mouth's outer edges.

Applying Lip Liner

Although you can line your lips before or after applying lipstick or gloss, I think that doing so makes my lips look more natural.

Before applying lipstick, line your lips with lip liner to prevent lipstick from fading so quickly. Because it serves as a color base, you retain color even after the lipstick goes off.

The Challenging Method of Choosing Lip Color

We can dive a little bit deeper into the science of hues and skin tone, yet choosing the proper shade is as simple as going a few shades darker than your natural lip color.

Lipstick colors like nudes, a somewhat apricot tint, pinks, and light corals look excellent on women with fair skin. Avoid using browns since they will look boring.

Medium skin tones can go a little bit darker. Roses, mauves, and berries will make you look gorgeous. Instead of using bright reds, think about using a deep burgundy. With dark or Black complexion, deep plum, chocolate, or red colors look amazing. The Allure's editors claim that "Women with dark skin "may go in one of two directions: toward brown or purple," according to Confessions of a Beauty Editor. Consider a wine or plum for the evening and a caramel or walnut for the day."
