Which lipstick shade is right for me?
December 11, 2011
From bright red to bubblegum pink, no celeb would hit the red carpet without the perfect color pout – and neither should you! The right lipstick can tie together any outfit and make you look polished and pretty in seconds, whether you're attending a movie premier or picking up some bread at the grocery store.
If you're looking for a lipstick shade for every day, the trick is to opt for a color that's not too different from your natural hue. Your lipstick should look natural and feminine even when you're not wearing any other makeup. For the best results, look for a shade that's only a couple of hues away from the color of your real lips.
Now that you know the rules, it's time to break 'em. If you're really looking to make a splash, you can't just stick with daytime neutrals – sometimes your bold outfit for a big date requires a color that stands out. Still, consider your palette. If you have cool tones, like dark hair and blue eyes, try bright red. For warm, brown-eyed gals, a deep magenta or fuchsia might work best. And light-eyed blondes can always rock a hot pink!
