This holiday season, we’ll all be donning berry, red, or dark, bold lips at some point. But there’s nothing worse than painting on a bold pair of lips only to see a dull and sallow reflection staring back at you in the mirror. So how do you find your perfect shade?
Determine your Undertone, COOL vs. WARM
This may be the most difficult part in finding your perfect shade as everyone’s undertone is unique to their own skin. The good news is you have two choices: yellow undertone or pink undertone. There are two ways to test this out. The first way is to ask yourself if gold jewelry or silver jewelry looks best on you. If gold jewelry compliments you more, then you probably have yellow undertones. If silver jewelry is more your thing, then you probably have pink undertones. Still can’t tell? Look at the veins on your interior wrist: if they are more green than blue, that means you have a yellow undertone; on the opposite side of the spectrum, if your veins appear blue-ish, than you more than likely have a pink undertone. If both of these tests seem about equal, than you’re part of the lucky group of ladies with a neutral tone who can rock anything!
Yellow undertones look best in warm colors, such as oranges, reds, and purples. For those with pink undertones, cooler colors with blue and grey undertones will make you glow!
