lipstick guide, master any color

Lipstick Guide

Hi guys

We all know that lipsticks can look different on each person. Depending on hair color, skin tone, shape of the lips and the rest of makeup, one color can look a shade darker, brighter, paler,……. . Some girls think that they need to stick to one shade when it comes to lipsticks. Although we all have (and need) our favorite reliable go-to color I believe that everyone can pull off any lipstick, all you need is to know how to master it. Here are some tips that I picked up through the years to help me wear different lipstick shades much better.

1-Dark shadesMac CosmeticsMac lipstick Power Driven(Deep wine burgandy)

  • Always use lip pencil to shape your lips and define lip lines
  • Don’t wear heavy eyeshadows. Unless you are an expert or really good. It’s really hard to combine these two and keep the look chic.
  • Wear a full coverage foundation.
  • Keep the eyebrows as natural as possible.

2-Bright red or bright orange

  • Don’t wear too much blush. In most cases a simple contouring will be enough.
  • Use a lip pencil, just make sure that they match.
  • Use lip primer.
  • Don’t forget the highlighter .

3-Nude or brown toned

  •  Don’t forget contouring and don’t be scared to go a little overboard with it (just a little).
  • Eye liner and double coat mascara are necessary.
  • Always add concealer to avoid looking tired or sleepless.
  • Wearing a full coverage foundation is advisable.

4-Pink or violet toned

  • DON’T WEAR COLORFUL EYESHADOW. I can’t stress this enough.
  • The rest of make up should be subtle and simple.
  • Avoid orange toned contouring colors.
  • Stick to one color pallet.

Remember that these are just suggestions while everyone can have their own preferences.
