Choosing the Right Lip Colour for You!

1. Identify Your Undertone

Everyone’s skin has undertones of either yellow or pink. Yellow is warmer, pink is cooler. A quick way to identify your skin’s undertone is to look at the veins on your wrist. If they are blue, and you also tend to gravitate towards wearing blues, whites, and grays, you’ve got pink undertones. If your veins appear more green, you have a warmer yellow undertone. If they appear to be both blue and green, you are the lucky owner of a neutral skin tone (meaning equal pink and yellow tones), and you can wear any colour.

2. Know Which Shades Work With Your Undertone

You want to focus on shades similar to your undertone when choosing a lip colour. For yellow undertones, stick to warmer colours and for pink undertones, look for shades with blue or purple tones in them.

3. When in Doubt, Pick Based on Your Skin Tone

Olive skin tones are generally neutral, so it’s hard for you to go wrong. Most nude, pink, orange, and red shades are going to look good on you. Fair skin tones can wear bold reds and deep colours and this can be a fun way to play up your makeup and look gorgeous! But you should avoid anything too light or with too much of a yellow undertone so you don’t look washed out. Darker skin tones should stick to deep plums, berries and reds, which look fantastic!
