HOW TO CHOOSE LIPSTICK SHADE FOR INDIAN SKINTONE?
The first thing that comes to mind when talking about makeup is lipstick. A makeup item which is so necessary and common but still we find it difficult to choose from the vast shade option and most of the time end up buying the wrong shade.
What's the ideal number of lipsticks you should own? We’ve got you covered—five shades (pink, red, coral, nude and oxblood) in five different textures (lip tint, liquid matte, satin finish, matte and gloss).
As with everything else, the final rules of what you use on your face are the ones you make for yourself, but a little help to guide you along doesn't hurt.
The perfect lipstick shades for light skin tones
If you fall under the ‘light' bracket that covers everything from almost white to a warm beige, lipsticks with bluer, cooler undertones are perfect for you. With lighter skin and cooler undertones, shades that are too light can wash the face out, so steer clear from those. You'll want to reach for a bright shade like fuchsia pink, a scarlet red, bright corals and salmon nudes to add brightness and drama to the face. If you do want to try a nude instead of a bolder shade, reach for a peachy-rose shade that'll look like its barely-there, but won't leave you looking tired.
The perfect lipstick shades for medium skin tones
In case you have wheatish and medium coloured skin tone, one can try out reds (yes, you heard it right! Experiment with the red’s) and bold nudes. These are among best-suited lipstick shades for wheatish Indian skin for you to try out. You can go for a sultry look with red shade with orange undertone to compliment your perfect medium skin tones. For safer nudes the best shade is to pick a shade darker than your skin tone to keep the eyes on the lips. Pink nudes also work great for everyday look.
The perfect lipstick shade for dark skin tones
If your skin tone ranges from a caramel to a chocolate brown, you're part of the dark skin category. Definitely look for shades with yellow undertones. Try a punchy pink, crimson red, tiger lily coral or gingerbread nude for your best pick. A true red will pop, while deep shades can help make the lips the focal point of the face.
If you want to go for bold looks for parties, these magenta colour pinks and reds are the best for dusky skin tones. These lipstick shades for brown skin are quite safe to go and yet make you stand apart in a crowd. They are all peppy and yet very elegant and stylish.
Remember, you may think nudist shades are your best friend, but all are not entirely good on you. Always stay away from lighter nudes, which can make your face look ashy and faded. Go for dark browns, nude shades with rich chocolate shades or with rose brown colours. The darker the complexion, the darker your lipstick shade should be for you or else you may not look apt for the shade to fit on you.
