How To Choose The Right Lipstick For Your Look

Choosing The Right Lipstick For Your Outfit

A lot of time we get dressed, do our makeup and get stuck trying to figure out what colour lipstick to wear. What seems to be the easiest step in applying makeup can turn out to be quite difficult. Especially if you did not have a lot of advance time to plan your outfit and makeup look. But we also know how  important selecting the right lip colour is and how it affects your entire look.

Choose Between Bold Eyes or Bold Lips

Although some people do it, it not not typical that you use bold eye-shadow in conjunction with bold lips unless its a glam look. Pick between a neutral look with bold lips or bold eyes with natural lips. If you want attention draw to your eyes then that is where you want to be bold. Alternatively, if you want to draw attention to your lips that is where the focus should be.

Determine And Pay Attention To Your Skin-tone And Undertone

Pale/Fair Skin

  • Nudes
  • Pinks
  • Corals

Medium Skin-tone

  • Mauves
  • Berries
  • Burgundy

Dark/Deep Tone

  • Deep plum
  • Red browns
  • Red
  • Dark beige

I am not an expert in this area and this is simply a guide. For a better way of determining your perfect match I suggest you visit a pro makeup store. They can test different shades on you so that you find some staples that you feel comfortable buying and wearing. Others may purchase different products to experiment until they find suitable ones. But this is not advisable to do particularly with high end products unless its money back guaranteed.

Look At Textures

Apart from wearing the right shade lipstick, equally important is the texture. You can select between:

  • Matte / Semi Matte
  • Metallic
  • Creme
  • Satin
  • Sheer
  • Glossy or
  • Liquid

Depending on the occasion, whether you want long-lasting or prefer one that can be reapplied every couple of hours; decide based on that. For instance, if you are going to dinner it may be safer to wear a glossy or sheer lipstick as opposed to matte. In the past I have made the mistake of putting on matte liquid lipsticks when going for dinner and ended up with embarrassing-looking lips afterwards.

Let Your Outfit Be Your Guide

Girly Look – pale pink and peachy shades

Minimalist – nudes and browns

Edgy & Cool – deep purple, chocolate brown, black, gray, bright pinks, orange, dark blue

Casual – mauve, lilac, purple

Executive/Classy – true red, burgundy, berries

Go With Your Mood

Many times your mood can steer you in the right direction. So if all else fails then let your mood be your guide. Remember your lip colour doesn’t necessarily have to be the same as your outfit, as long as it compliments it.

Hope this post helps you in your future decisions when selecting a lip colour. Share it with someone who you know would appreciate some good advice.

  • Trying out these Reusable Medical Grade Silicone Patches from @siobeauty in hope that they get rid of these fine lines “wrinkles” from my face ☺️ I’ve got the Eye & Smile Lift as well as the Browlift. Best part is that each patch is reusable up to 15 times 😁

  • So happy to have received @coverfx Power Play Foundation in the shade N100 and their Perfect Setting Powder complimentary @influenster. I used these products on my face and I was in awe at how beautiful it looked and lasted. My face remained matte just like I like it, even after sweating profusely 😅 it’s light-weight, full-coverage, long lasting and a little bit of product goes a long way! Can’t wait to post the review on my blog 😁 #soon Beautiful product and there are 40 shades to choose from! Slide left to see the results .

  • So I’ve been using the Dark Garden Collection from @aloette for the past few days now and I’m thrilled. 😁 Of course they are all aloe vera infused with a very mild fragrance. .

I love to use the Body Incense Dry Hand & Body Lotion all over my body after showering especially on evenings after a long day of work.  It’s not as heavy as a lotion but gives that smooth feeling that somehow disappears into the skin  but giving it a moisturized look and feel 🤷🏽‍♀️ Perfect product for pampering  yourself in the comfort of your home. .
.
.
As for the body wash it’s exactly how I love mine, thick with lots of lather. .
.

The lotion also has a thick consistency and doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky but rather buttery smooth. #sponsored #stepintodarkgarden @aloette #aloette #aloettecosmetics #beautyproducts #bodycare #bodylotion #review #reviews #reviewblogger #ad #spor #aloevera #aloe #candles #spaday #spa #spas #pampering #pamperingmyself #pamperingday #bodylotion #showergel #handlotion #bodyoil #skincareproducts #beautyproduct #beautyproducts #bbloggers
