Every day is lipstick day. It’s a fun experiment to wear different lip colors and finishes. But it’s also equally essential to have go-to lipsticks in case of a beauty emergency (hint: looking underdressed for a special occasion or being too busy to decide on a lippie). If you haven’t figured out your signature shade, all you need to do is answer this important question: What’s your skin undertone?
Your natural undertone is all in the veins. It’s your secret key to determining which colors work for you. That’s why beauty enthusiasts like to test swatches on their wrists. If the veins appear bluish or purplish, then your skin has a cool tone. Best to invest on a classic deep shade like the MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo.
Veins that appear to be greenish are connected to having a warm undertone. This is often the case for girls who have sun-kissed skin! Lipsticks that are orange or peach-based look good on them. Try the MAC Matte Lipstick in Chili.
You just won in life should your skin have a mix of warm and cool undertones. Any lipstick shade can be your best friend. Go play around with unconventional shades. MAC Lipstick in Pink Nouveau is an ultrachic pick for starters!
Now that you know the rules on choosing the lippie complement for your skin tone, it’s up to you if you want to follow or break them. Feel free to express your love for lippies. For more exciting shades, head to MAC Cosmetics website and Instagram!
