Wear No Other Makeup
When you are testing lipstick on your face, you want to find a lipstick that looks great without any other makeup on your face. That will give a truly beautiful lipstick color shade. If it looks good without the rest of your makeup, it will surely look good with the rest of your makeup on as well.
Using Red Lipstick
Ah, red lipstick. The makeup item that most women believe that they just can't pull off because they aren't bold enough. If you are one of those women, get that thought out of your head right now! The thing about wearing red lipstick is that you have to find one that is in the undertones. For example, if you have pink skin, you would probably want to choose a cherry red lipstick. If you have olive skin, you could wear a fire engine red. If you have a darker skin tone, you would want to look for deeper red shades.
Idea: Rather than applying red lipstick directly to your lips, try applying lip balm and then applying your lipstick with your index finger. This will help you get a red color that is not too bright but it's still all of the bold that you would get by applying it directly.
Tip: Never try to match your lipstick to what you are wearing that day. You will never find a good color and you will never like the way it looks.
Tip: Always match your lip liner to your natural lip color, not your lipstick.
The lipstick brand that you choose is important as well. You don't want to buy a brand that is too cheap. This will leave your lips looking clumped and it won't last nearly as long as you would like it to. Some of the best brands of lipsticks that you can find are:
• MAC: A wonderful collection of lipstick shades and finishes!
• Lancome: A very affordable brand that will leave your lips looking completely dazzling.
• Chanel: As you probably know, Chanel can be on the expensive side but you get what you pay for.
Lipstick is very important for your look and your lips! Follow the guidelines above and you will have the perfect lipstick for your lips!
