In today’s trying times, many of us can identify with Elizabeth Taylor’s famous quote, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together.” We wholeheartedly agree that adding a pop of color to your lips can make all the difference in your attitude - after all, to look good is to feel good!
There are so many colors and formulas of lip color out there, but choosing the perfect one doesn’t have to be daunting! Here are a few tips and tricks to make sure you find one that’s just right.
💄 Do you have a cool (pink) or warm (yellow) skin tone? The quickest way to tell: check out the veins in your wrists: are they blue (cool) or green/blue (warm)? Cool skin tones are often fairer, and warm skin tones are golden or olive. If it’s really hard to tell which you are, you may be neutral. Lucky you!
💄 If you have cool undertones, lip colors with blue or pink undertones, like cranberry or plum, will probably look best. For warmer skin, try more earthy shades like brick reds or terra cotta. Neutral skin tones can rock almost any shade!
💄 Wish you had fuller lips? Glosses such as Lip POP will make your lips appear larger, and creamy, matte formulas, like our Lip LIQ, are longer wearing. Lip stains have major staying power, and our Lip DYE can be layered on to go from subtle to bold.
💄 The easiest way to select a shade that you know will be flattering is to choose one a shade or two darker than your natural lip.
