Choosing the Right Lip Color

One of the most common makeup mistake that women make is selecting the wrong lip color. In the past, women have chosen lip color based on what they were wearing, or simply because they liked the look of the lip color in the tube. While occasionally these selection techniques will result in a good choice, most of the time it is going to lead you to the wrong color.

Choosing the Right Lip Color Tip Number 1 – Use a Color Chart

One of the easiest ways to select the right lip color for you is to use a color chart provided by the makeup’s manufacturer or the cosmetic counter. This chart will usually separate the available lip color by skin tones. This is a good option to use to get an idea of what will look good on you.

Choosing the Right Lip Color Tip Number 2 – Try It On

The rule of thumb for buying the right lip color is to try it on before you buy it. Just because a lip color looks attractive in its little tube, or on the color swatch, doesn’t mean that it will look good on you. In fact, lip color is going to look different on everyone who uses it because the color reacts to your body chemistry and your skin tone. The only way to be certain that a lip color is going to look good on you is to try it on.

Choosing the Right Lip Color Tip Number 3 – Ask for Help

If you don’t know what looks good on you and you don’t trust the color charts, then ask for help. Most cosmetic departments will have a makeup specialist on hand to help customers find the right colors for them. They may also be able to show you how to apply the lipstick properly, what lipsticks will work best for you, and what tricks you can use to make your lips look full and sexy.

Choosing the Right Lip Color Tip Number 4 – Mix Your Own

If you simply can’t find a color that you like then you can always mix your own color. To do this you will need to find lipsticks that will work with your coloring, and then mix them together to produce darker colors, or to produce a shade that you enjoy more. If you don’t want to mix your own, there are specialty shops that will create a customer color for you based on your skin tone and color palette preferences.

Choosing the Right Lip Color Tip Number 5 – Take a Risk

Sometimes in life you just need to take a chance. If you want to be bold then try a bold lip color, or try one of the trendy lip colors. While you may not be comfortable using these risky, or trendy lip colors often, it is fund to take a fashion risk once in a while. Who knows, you may stumble across a color that looks fantastic on you.
