I have been doing some reading and research over the months since I started blogging and here is what I learned and experienced. Usually the first thing that runs through most of our minds when we think about how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick is that it should match our skin color. If you’ve been thinking that all of these years I’m here to tell you unless you’ve got a cold and your lips actually match your skin, you’re wrong. It can be hard at first but with a few tips I’ll show you how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick for every shade of skin.
The 1st Rule of thumb is as follows. Keep on reading :-
- MATCH YOUR LIP COLOR, NOT YOUR SKIN
It’s important to pick the shade that match your lip and not your skin.
2. HOW TO DETERMINE WHAT UNDERTONE YOU HAVE
Check under your wrist and if you have a green color veins, you’ve warm undertone and blue veins means you have cool undertone.
3. Choosing Your Lip Color With The Right Undertones. Here are some points you might want to know when choosing your lip color :
Fair Skin with Pink (Cool) Undertones: Your cool undertones mean you’ll want to pick a lipstick with hints of blue, and steer clear of anything orangey
Fair Skin with Yellow (Warm) Undertones: Choose something with a tinge of orange, which will complement your skin tone and make your eyes pop. As a general rule, you’ll want to stay away from pinks — they’ll wash you out.
Medium Skin and Tan Skin: Lucky you! Your complexion goes with almost everything! Not only can you indulge in so-called “true reds” — which are the perfect combination of pink and orange — but your choices also run the gamut from pink, orange, cranberry and even deep oxblood or brown tones.
Olive Skin: Olive complexions can be surprisingly finicky. Your complexion has yellow undertones, but lipsticks with too much of an orange base can look off. Pick reds with a slight hint of blue in them, like a berry hue; and if you feel the combination isn’t working for you, go for a sheer or glossy version.
Dark Skin: Both blue-based reds and orangey reds look excellent with your complexion. You’ll enjoy brighter reds, a range of coral tones, true reds and deeply saturated berry tones.
