Know your skin tones

You’ve been biased towards reds/ pinks and the browns have never gotten the credit they deserved. Turns out, the brown lipstick is quite the dark horse of the lipstick family ‘coz it’s all the rage right now. Perfect for a well contoured bronzed makeup look, brown lipstick is here to stay!


How to wear brown lips?

Know your skin tones

Brown is perfect for a monochrome makeup look. This means when you wear the brown lip—be it in the form of a matte or glossy lipstick, the rest of your face needs to be subtle and muted. So pull out the brown eyeshadows and bronzers and go for a contoured look with your brown lips.

Know your skin tones

If you thought that a brown lip won’t work for your skin tone, know that there’s actually a shade of brown for every skin tone. If you have fair skin, go for a peachy-brown lipstick that looks like a paler cappuccino. We suggest going with the Lakmé Enrich Lip Crayon, Cinnamon Brown. For those with a medium complexion, go for a brown with a red undertone. A vampy shade or even a brick-coloured brown will work wonders on your skin tone. We suggest you go with the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color, Deep Brown. If you have dark skin tone, try an earthy shade of brown—something that’s tanned and pinkish brown. Go for the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color, Soft Nude.
