How To Pick The Best Lipstick Colour For You

Get ready to confidently choose the perfect lipstick color that will make you look absolutely fabulous! We're about to embark on a flirty and fun journey of finding the shade that suits your skin tone, undertone, and jewellery preferences. Let's dive in!

Step 1: Determine your skin tone

Think of it as light, light/medium, medium, medium/deep, deep, or very deep. For example, light skin tone is like milk, light/medium is similar to sweet cream, medium-toned skin is like weak tea, medium/deep is like milk chocolate, deep is like strong tea, and very deep is similar to espresso or 80% dark chocolate.

Step 2: Consider your undertone using your jewellery

It can be cool, warm, or neutral. If you wear white/silver metals, you likely have a cool undertone. If you wear mostly gold, it's probably a warm undertone. Wearing both silver and gold together indicates a neutral undertone, allowing you to look great in both cool and warm tones.
