Meet Your Match
These days, lip colour formulations have richer pigments and reflect light better to give you more vibrant-looking pouts. Transparent tints look great on every skin tone. But if concentrated colour is what you’re after, these three pointers can help narrow down your choices: 1 Lipsticks with blue undertones like rose and pinks will look flattering on those with fair skin. Colours with yellow undertones like warm plums, orange, and beige will bring out the gold in medium to olive skin tones. Darker tones on the other hand, can carry deep reds and darker shades. 2 Check the colour of your teeth. If it has a yellowish tinge, you can ‘whiten’ them with blue undertone lippies. 3 Consider your environment. If you’re under harsh lighting at the office during the day, go for warm and soft, creamy shades in pinkish tones. For an evening look, opt for brighter, bolder colours as light then is more forgiving.
