Here’s a quick guide on how to find your perfect lipstick shade...
#1 Find Out Your Skin Tone
The ground rule of finding your ideal lipstick shade is to determine your skin tone. There are 3 main types of skin complexion: fair to light, medium to wheatish and dusky to warm skin tones. Find which category you fall into before buying your lipstick. Look into that chart above and chose your lip shade accordingly.
#2 Find Out Your Undertone
Determining your undertone is the most important step towards finding your ideal lipstick. There are basically three types of undertones: cool, warm and neutral.
The best way to find your undertone is to check your wrist. If your veins appear green, you’ve got a warm undertone. If blue, you have a cool undertone. And if they are purple, you have neutral undertones.
If you have a warm tone, choose lipsticks with yellow undertones.
If you have a cool tone, blue undertone lipsticks would work well for you.
#3 Pick Your Shade
Once you’ve determined all the parameters discussed above, choose your shade. Try experimenting with different shades of the same colour family that fall into your range.
Once you’re done analysing all the steps, you’ll have your ideal lipstick with you.
