How to Choose Lipstick Color


One of the biggest requests I get as a makeup artist is people asking me what would be the best look for me and I always tell people there’s not as one shade of lipstick, that’d be perfect for you. There are multiple shades, there are multiple textures. But what I always tell my clients they need to do are figure out what they feel comfortable wearing. So I’ve got a couple different options herein my hand.

From a texture standpoint, from a colors standpoint and then you can take that information and go shopping with it and pick out a couple new colors to try out. Down here in my hand, I have 2 different reds. One is a blue red and the other is an orange-red and both of these can be worn by the same woman.

It is really a preference of what you prefer. But it’s just to know things orange in them to make her teeth look less white. If they are not perfectly white. Little red then we are forgiving and so therefore if you really want your taste to be bright and your smile to be, it is best, you should probably go for blue red.

But something else that makes this bottom red unique and one of my favorite colors is that it is completely mat and mat colors have no shine. So they are very classic, you don’t think about people from the 30s and 40s of having glossy lips because gloss wasn’t invented yet. So that mat lipstick, it is something kind of a throwback.

So they are every pigmented color that dries on the lips. They are cool without adding kind of gloss over them. But they are definitely statement lipsticks. So if it is that person who likes to do things that are bold and very confident, mat lipsticks are for you.

If you don’t have full lips and maybe you have beautiful eyes and you like to play up your eyes a lot. You are going to want to go with something that is softer. Something that’s a little bit less bright and then also something that’s got the texture that is sheerer. Or maybe even like a glaze. Enough of them called this lipstick glaze. Because a little bit of your actual lip color will show through when you put it on.

You don’t really feel like you’re wearing lipstick. It’s almost like wearing a little lip gloss and if you like to go bold, you are going to want to stick with somebody fun mat pigmented colors. No matter what, just remember makeup washes off at the end of the day. It’s so you should play around and try a whole bunch of different lipsticks.

Just remember to start with priming your lips so your lipstick lasts and always use a lip liner and filling your whole lip if you want a product to stick and stay in all places. Otherwise, you are going to have a couple drinks and you are going to have that ring around your lips so only your liner’s left and that is not hot.
