Choose your lipstick

Every ladies handbag has this item and always in many numbers. But the girls doesn't know how to select a suitable lipsticks for themselves. Here are few tips to select a suitable lipstick for yourself.

Before buying a lipstick, try out different shades of lipsticks at a beauty shop and find out what suits your color. Choose a color tat complements your color.

Plums, wines and deep reds flatter a dark skin tone while light - brown beiges with pink or orange undertones complement a lighter tone. Olive skin looks good with brownish reds, light browns and raisin shades of lipstick.

For women with large lips, muted colors such as purples, browns and bronzes are the best choices while women with thinner lips can go for light colors.

Make sure you wear lighter colors for the daytime and darker colors for the night. Matte and cream finish offer a subtle look for the day time and for evening outing , a high gloss finish is suitable that adds glamour for the evening. A sheer, natural looking color with a little shine will work well for the day time.

If you love experimenting, create your own shade by combining colors. The best way to do this is by applying a color to your lip with a lip brush and then blend the brush on your lips. Opt for a lip liner that is a shade darker than your lipstick and in the same color family.

A clear lip balm is the best thing for everyday use while sheer application of a colored lip gloss on lips, cheeks and eyes looks quite subtle and sexy. Glitter lipsticks and lip glosses are for special events and funky night parties that highlight your lips immensely.
