How to determine the undertone of your skin?
The best way to find out is by trying the old jewellery trick. If gold jewellery suits your skin the best, you have a warm undertone. If it’s silver jewellery, then you have a cool undertone. If both suit your skin you have a neutral undertone. When you have a warm undertone your veins appear green and when you have a cool undertone your veins appear blue.
For a fair complexion
Those with fair skin have cool undertones that include like pink, red or blue. Deep cherry reds, coral reds and wine are preferred red lipstick shades for those of you with fair skin as they will add life to your complexion.
To get the right red lipstick for your skin tone you can use the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Matte Lipstick in Red Envy or Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Drenched Red.
