I love make up and I love the way it makes you look. It enhances your beauty and makes you more confident.
There is one thing I have observed, no matter what make-up you wear or carry, every girl will definitely have one Lipstick in her purse.
I also carry lipstick with me no matter what.
Lipstick changes the entire look of your face. A pop of color will make your face bright and beautiful.
In market, there are so many different brands and shades of lipsticks. From Lip stains to Liquid lipsticks etc.
It is always confusing what color of lipstick will suit me and what type of lipstick I must wear ?
Always remember, the skin tone you have. Girls with Fair skin can wear almost any color but when it come to girls with darker skin tone the range limits.
That doesn’t mean you cannot wear bright pinks or corals. Of course you can wear them.
When you select a shade make sure to know your skin tone better. See the tones you have in your skin. Does your skin have yellow undertone or pink undertone.
Girls with yellow undertone should avoid pink undertone shades of lipstick. As sometime they look a bit off.
If you find a lipstick which has a little bit of pink undertone then you can definitely wear it.
Girls with yellow undertone can totally rock dark coral shades, bright reds , burgundy, raspberry, plums and chocolate shades. They can also wear rose color as well.
Now girls with pink undertone can wear light pinks, corals, purple and bright pinks etc.
Usually girls with pink undertone, I think can wear even darker shades.
Lipstick Shades one must have in their makeup bag are : Rose pink shade, Burgundy, Coral and Red.
These are the basic shades which anyone can carry.
Don’t be scared to wear darker shades of lipsticks because they look too dark.
In summer go with lighter and sheer lipsticks maybe even lipstains and in winter go with dark matte colors.
There are so many brands that do really good lipsticks, some of my favorites are : MAC, Loreal, Maybelline and Revlon.
Nowadays, there is a trend of tinted lip balms which are also very nice to wear in winter or in general, when you are having chapped lips. They moisturize as well as give color to your lips.
If you are using matte lipstick in winters, then make sure to wear a really nice lip balm under it, or else it will look flaky.
For college, one can use tinted lip balms as well as Lip gloss or liquid lipsticks. Lakme is making some great liquid lipstick which has amazing color payoff.
Lipsticks has the capacity to change the look from simple to bold with its selection of shades.
If you are not a lipstick girl, then do give it a try to know the difference it makes in your look.
