How to choose the perfect lipstick for your skin tone: it seems easy, but it’s not that obvious!
Think about it: red lipstick is very elegant on some women, but it can be vulgar on others. But why?
Today I reveal some secrets of the image consulting and color analysis to find out how to choose the right lipstick.
MATTERS OF CONTRASTS
The rule is simple: if your mix of skin-eyes-hair has strong contrasts, an intense lipstick works the best on you.
What is the meaning of strong contrasts? Here are some simple examples:
Dita Von Teese has black hair and very fair skin: this strong contrast suggests using a lipstick with a strong color. In fact, have you ever seen her without red lipstick? The contrast of dark eyes and hair on fair skin is also very nice.
Another example of strong contrasts in the mix skin-eyes-hair is Eva Green: dark hair and light eyes. Even in this case, the red lipstick is inevitable.
Idem Angelina Jolie: brown hair and green eyes.
Or even Gwen Stefani: her color contrast is based on black eyes and platinum blonde hair:
If you have dark hair and fair skin, you may have noticed that the red lipstick looks better on you in winter than summer. Of course! Because in winter the skin is lighter and creates more contrast with the hair; however, in summer the tan makes your colors more even and lowers the contrast…
HOW TO CHOOSE THE LIPSTICK IF, HOWEVER, YOUR COLORS HAVE A LOW CONTRAST
When skin, eyes and hair settle on the same hue, then soft shades are preferable.But not less fascinating.
Eva Mendes is a good example: her mix skin-eyes-hair is dark and homogeneous, without contrasts between the various elements. Her lipstick is typically nude.
Same choice is for Salma Hayek: the color mix doesn’t have enough contrast for a too bright lipstick.
The same is for blondes, when there aren’t contrasts between skin, eyes and hair. Diane Kruger is a good example of homogeneous colors:
Nude and delicate colors are for the divine Cate Blanchett:
BUT TO KNOW HOW TO CHOOSE THE LIPSTICK THERE IS ANOTHER IMPORTANT FACTOR: THE UNDERTONE.
Do not assume that you have warm or cool colors just because you have dark or fair skin!
Find out easily with my test!
If you have warm colors, use a lipstick in warm tones; but if you have cool colors, choose one in cool shades.
AT THIS POINT YOU JUST NEED TO CHOOSE YOUR IDEAL LIPSTICK!
Have a look at the chart below:
If you have warm colors with a low contrast, the first column is ideal.
