SHADE 1—FUCHSIAS AND PURPLES
Fuchsias and purples are the shades that complement wheatish, warm as well as the fair skin tones. These colours also translate best when worn with darker and deeper colours. Psst, these shades work best if you save them for the evening dos.
BB Lip Tip: A wheatish complexion to warm skin tones to light beige skins can all carry fuchsia colors in plums and raspberry very well.
BB Outfit Tip: These luscious colours team well with dark and deep autumn colours and are best worn for the evening to night occasions to add some extra drama to your face.
We recommend: Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout in Magenta Magic, Crimson Touch, Mauve Fix and Pink Glam from the LFW Summer hi-definition matte lipsticks - Lakmé Absolute Sculpt range.
SHADE 2—THE PINK PALETTE
Our favorite festive lip colour for the day looks has got to be pink. Be it an electric pink for an afternoon lunch or a pastel pick for a subtle temple outing. A feminine pink lip color palette will sail you through most of your festive looks.
BB Lip Tip: Light to very fair undertones can pick lipsticks in pinks, rose colours and berries.
BB Outfit Tip: Wear hot pink lips with an all-black outfit or team lighter shades of pink with colours from the same colour palette.
We recommend: Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout in Pink Fantasy, Pink Caress, Pink me up, and the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt range.
SHADE 3—A TINGE OF TANGERINE
All shades orange were custom made for the festive season. You can choose to dial up your look with a loud tangerine and balance it out with an off whitish cream colour. Or you can go for subtle shades of coral and wear them with pastels. Either way, orange hues make the most versatile lip colors for they make you look festival ready without looking too loud.
BB Lip Tip: Yellow to light beige skin tones look best in corals, tangerines and oranges.
BB Outfit Tip: Depending on the brightness of your orange you can team loud tangerines with off colours and the corals and oranges with pastel colours.
We recommend: Tangrine Lush, Red Flames and Coral Flare from the LFW Summer hi-definition matte lipsticks - Lakmé Absolute Sculpt range.
SHADE 4—RAVISHING IN RED
Red is a festive staple and is your best bet at dressing up for the simple reason that there is a red colour for every skin tone. A deep maroon red works wonders on extremely warmer skin tones while brighter shades like a cherry red move towards the lighter skin tones.
BB Lip Tip: Shades of red can suit almost every skin tone, from very light to brown. All you need is to find the red that suits you best.
BB Outfit Tip: Classic combinations like a white or black outfit with those perfect red lips will always work. But if you are feeling particularly experimental then most light shades like golden, pastels will team well with shades of red by the day, while dark colours will complement red during the night.
We recommend: The Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout in Starlet Red, Burgundy Affair, Red Rush, Plum Spell and Maroon Magic from the LFW Summer hi-definition matte lipsticks - Lakmé Absolute Sculpt range.
