Q: How to Choose the Best Lipstick for Your Skin Tone♥️♥️

Hi Everyone , finally the wait is over and the most waited party has begun , to begun with the swatches and  lip trends which I will be sharing with you all in the future , before that just thought of sharing this small guide to choose a lipstick shade for your skin tone. 


There are so many different lipstick undertones, consistencies, and finishes but the first step is to know your skin tone . Most people fall into one of two categories: warm or cool. Those with cool undertones tend to have fairer skin, while those with warm undertones have a golden or olive hue. If you find it really hard to determine your undertone, there’s a chance you’re neutral (a mixture of both)

1-Cool Undertones

If you have a pink, red, or bluish hue to your skin, you are cool toned. You can tell your undertone is cool if the veins in your wrist look blue, silver jewelry complements your skin, or you tend to burn before you tan.


The best lipsticks for cool undertones have blue- or purple-shaded undertones. So when you go to choose a red lip, steer away from orangey shades and veer more toward deep bluish-reds.


2-Warm Undertones- 

If you have a yellow, golden, or olive hue to your skin, you likely have a warm undertone. You can tell your undertone is warm if the veins in your wrist look green, gold jewelry complements your skin, or you tend to tan fairly easily.


The best lipsticks for warm undertones are lip colors in warm shades. So go for really red or orangey colors.


3-Neutral Undertones

Those with neutral undertones look good in both silver and gold jewelry, and a wide spectrum of colors typically tend to complement your skin. So , you are free for any lip colour as every shade will suit you. 


Note -People with fair skin look radiant in bold and deep colors that provide contrast to their tone. If you feel like you’re a bit more olive toned, pinks, corals, and nudes will suit you well. If your skin has a darker tone, choose a berry lip or a bold, dark shade. 


The main thing to remember is that, ultimately, your lip color is up to you. If you feel like you look best in a coral but that doesn’t align with the "rules," that's okay—just do you. At the end of the day, we all feel prettiest in whichever choice makes us the most confident
