First and foremost you have to determine the skin undertone. You might have already read about the skin undertone in a jewellery article. Warmer shade lipsticks are suitable for warm skin undertone and cooler shade lipsticks are suitable for cool skin undertone. Let me get to the point now.
Red looks absolutely stunning on every skin tone. The key is to find the right shade of red. Warmer skin tones invest in a red with an orange undertone and cooler skin tone go for reds with a bluish hue. The most popular reds are MAC Ruby Woo and Russian Red. MAC Ruby Woo is the holy grail of all red lipsticks. It looks flattering on everybody.
Pink shade goes well with most outfits and makeup. Every girl should have her pink shade, the iconic colour that you could rock from day to night. Pale, bright or dark find the perfect shade and finish for you. A shade of magenta is a good one to have, you can dab a little to give a stained lip or a full finish for a bright look. MAC Girl About Town, Maybelline Creamy Matte- Mesmerizing magenta and Revlon lustrous matte- Seductive sienna,
Orange goes well with both ethnic and western wear. Choose the right shade of orange for your skin undertone. The option for orange hue is endless. The orange lipstick should pack a punch. MAC Morange is a good example for the perfect orange.
When you’re experimenting with eye makeup it is best to go with nude lipstick. With nudes, it is always hit or miss. Some nudes can make you look washed out. You don’t want to look like a ghost. Try different nudes and find the right shade for you. Nude with peach or pink hue saves you from looking like a ghost. MAC Twig and Mocha are perfect nudes for fair to medium skin tone.
The perfect dark shade for Indian skin, a mix of maroon and purple. Like orange, it is suitable for both ethnic and western wear. Being a darker shade you can dab it for a stained effect. Different looks from a single lipstick. Maybelline creamy matte- Burgundy Blush is affordable and long stay.
