Does going to the makeup store seem more of a chore than fun? The lipstick shade you’ve been thinking of for days doesn’t suit when you try it on? Well, all this and a lot more can be taken care of if you shop as per your skin’s undertones. Makeup experts around the world talk about how considering skin’s undertones can lead you to the right lipstick colour that won’t look odd or loud on your face.
A big task is to know your undertones. It’s not difficult to check and once you know, you are sorted for life. In fact, it also helps in buying the perfect gift for your BFF because now you know the magic trick!
Basically, undertones fall into two categories—warm and cool—but there are few people who have neutral undertone too. Those with cool undertones have fairer skin tone and people with warm undertones have golden/ olive hue. And if you fall under neither then you have neutral undertones.
People with cool undertones have a red, pink or bluish hue. Check if silver jewellery complements your skin tone better than golden or if the veins on your wrist appear blue. Lipsticks with blue- or purple-ish undertones should be your pick. For instance, if you are looking for a perfect red for yourself, avoid orangey tones and look for deep ones. Try to avoid light shades as they can make you look washed out.
If you have golden, olive undertone, you fall under this category. If golden jewellery suits you better and the veins on your wrist look green, then you have warm undertones. Warm shades like reds inclined towards orangey tones are your colours. Bright hues will compliment your skin tone as they will pop against it instantly. It’s time for you to have fun with shades
People with neutral undertones are blessed, period! If both, golden and silver jewellery, suit you, you may not have to worry about the shades to pick! You have a wide range of colours to choose from and all of them are fail-proof for you. However, wine shades will suit you the best.
It’s fine to still be confused; it might take some time for you to get a hang of it. Just a simple trick to remember, choose contrast shades to your skin tone. If you are fair, go for deep hues. But if you have olive golden skin tone, opt for bright pop shades
