Lip Care 101: What’s the right lip color for your complexion?


Now that the weather is changing, so should the color of lipstick you choose to use! Even though we are in love with the bright pinks and red tones, Fall is the time of the year when you change your lip color. There are many factors that go into picking the right lip color. Take in consider the color of your skin and its undertones. Are you prepared to fall in love with a new lip stain? If so, color your lips as if it was the leaves falling off the tree. Autumn is the moment of change; and this is the perfect time for a lip revolution! Besides your skin complexion, take in consideration your eye color, hair color, age, lip size, and the time of day.


I love the colors of the rainbow but all of them are not the best choice for lips. Its a pleasure having fun with make up but remember mirroring a clown is not an option. Colors of the lips are divided into three groups; Warm (peach, orange, and coral shades), Cold (pink shades), and Neutral (nude, brown, beige, and terracotta). Shades can be light, medium or even dark. There are several factors to understand when you want to paint your lips a new color. For example, if you have gray eyes, try using shades of plum or beige for your lips. This is a great compliment to your eyes. If you have blue eyes, beige and shades of pink and cherry are perfect for your pout. For women who possess silky, chocolate skin, red, plum, chocolate, wine, and pastel tones will fit your skin tone.
