I am a lover of lipstick…although I don’t always wear that which compliments my skin tone. Seriously, I am bordering on being transparent…it was a tough winter for me. That doesn’t mean that spring isn’t around the corner- and with it comes new fashion lines, makeup trends and more. And for me, if I could only have one makeup item, it would definitely be lipstick. So before we hop into what the new colors for spring 2017 are, it is first important to identify which colors look best with your skin tone.
Finding The Best Lipstick For Your Skin Tone
What is your undertone?
You have either yellow, pink or neutral undertones. You can find out by simply checking your veins.
Blue veins = pink undertones
Green veins = yellow undertones
Both Blue and Green Veins = neutral undertones
Now that you’ve determined your undertone, pick lipsticks closer to that undertone.
Pink undertones = cooler colors with shades of blue or purple in them.
Yellow undertones = warmer colors with reds and oranges in them.
Neutral undertones = you can wear whatever you want, just make sure it matches your outfit!
Easy lipstick guide based on skin tone.
If you have fair skin, choose bold and deep colors and avoid anything too close to your skin color.
If you have olive or neutral skin, anything goes great on you, but you can also rock nude lipstick.
If you have darker skin, opt for deep plums, purples, and reds.
