Every lipstick has its characteristic complement with trait of a person. How do we know if a lipstick suit us perfectly based on its color, texture and brand? Test and trials are always the basic of learning and understanding. Before you manage to know your favorite lipstick, here are some quick tips for you to pick up a suitable lipstick and to apply it nicely:
1. Pick the most attractive color
If you have great lip shape with nice white teeth and you would like to be the focus in an event, go for the most attractive lipstick color among rolls of lipsticks displayed on the shelve.
2. Try it yourself!
A lipstick color might look good on the shelve or catalog but not on your lips. So, try it before you pay for it for the first time.
3. Choose the most ordinary color
Looking at so many colors of shelved lipsticks, sometimes you may get confused. Then, why not choosing the most ordinary or unattractive one? It would look natural and comfortable on your lips. Believe it or not? Try yourself then.
4. Don't simply pink up your lips
During autumn and winter, skin color may turn yellowish or pale brown, don't go for pinkish shade then. Your skin would look more yellow and ill. Alternatively, warm color range matches well.
5. Match your clothes
Not only skin color, lipstick color has to be matched with your clothing color. If you're wearing black or white series of colors, you would look elegance with red or purplish red lipstick.
6. Nude lips
Remember, if you like to get perfect nude lips, please ensure that other parts of your face are having healthy reddish color and your eyes look bolder such that you look more lively and younger. If you were to attend a grand dinner or glamorous event, just go all out with your eyes make up. A pair of smoky eyes perhaps.
7. You may need a lip liner
If your lips shape is not clear, use lip liner to bring the shape up. However, be aware of the liner's shade. Never use a lip liner darker than your lip color or avoid red or brown shades of lip liner. I'm sure you don't like your lips to look circled up when your lipstick is kissed off or eaten up. You may change the shape of your lips as you wish with a liner in hand too.
8. Keep your lipstick color lasting
You may put a dab of foundation on your lips before applying lipstick. But some people don't really like the gloppy look of lip color resulted. A sheer swipe of eyelid primer is preferred instead to keep your lipstick staying on longer. You may neutralize your natural lip color with a a small amount of base prior to your lipstick application too. Natural and contemporary look of lips is expected.
9. Wear different shades from time to time
Yes, try to change your lipstick color from time to time. If you don't get bored with your lip colors, what about people around you? Cheer up your friends with surprises at times.
