Finding Your Perfect Lipstick Match

Lip gloss who? Lipstick is back and in popular demand. All of the hottest celebs are wearing great shades for all different occasions. Shades from pinks to reds to nudes can be used to transfer a day time look into a night time look. Here are some great tips for picking the right lipstick for your skin tone, to match any occasion.

1. Pinks. Pink lipstick is great to show off a girly, sweet, fun side. It is really important to first choose a lipstick that covers well. Then know which shades to use to match your skin tone. For fair skin, use a lipstick that has a gloss to it and more of a light bubblegum color. For medium skin tones, try a rose color. It is a bit deeper but not bright. For darker skin tones go for more of a fuchsia. It will really pop against your skin tone.

2. Berries. Berry colored lipstick is more of a dramatic look, that can be used to dress up a casual outfit. It is really important to know the right shades, because if you use the wrong color, it can end up making you look washed out and drained. For fairer skin, go for a raspberry color. It will have a hint of brightness, and still give a dramatic effect. For medium skin tones, go for a blackberry color, that has a sheer effect. The sheer effect will help to tone down the darkness, and highlight your skin. And for darker skin tones, go with a plum color.

3) Reds. Everyone loves a great red lip, but some reds aren’t for everyone. To fully pull off the red lips, you have to have confidence, a great color, and smooth application. A ruby red with an opaque look is great for fair skin. An orange-red is great for a medium skin tone because it really enhances a natural tan. And a brown based red, like a brick red, is great for enhancing a dark skin tone.

4) Nudes. A nude color can be great to tone down a look, or for a more simpleĀ appearance. Picking the right shade can be hard, because if it is too light it makes your mouth disappear, but if it is to dark, it doesn’t give off the nude look. For lighter skin tones, you need a nude that has a pink base. It give a natural feel to your lips, and the pink base will highlight your face. For a medium skin tone, find a nude with a peach base. The peach will go well with a tan, and still look natural. For darker skin, a honey or caramel color works best. They have some color to it, but not enough to over power.

If your looking for something completely different and very in, try a poppy lip. The poppy lip is a combination of red, orange, and pink that is perfectly balanced. Use it to add a pop of color to any outfit.Try these different lipstick ideas out, and experiment to see which look fits you best. Maybe you will like all three!
