If there’s one shade of lipstick that looks good on absolutely everyone, it’s red. There’s a ferocity to a red lip that can’t be achieved by any other colour. Even though a lot of us fantasize about wearing a bright red lip, identifying ‘the one’ can be difficult. Red may look good on everyone, but different tones of red look good on different skin tones. The trick is to try and match the undertone of the lipstick to the undertone of your skin.
Confused? Don’t worry! Identifying the undertone of your skin is easier than you think. All you need to do is look at the kind of jewellery you normally wear or look at the colour of your veins.
Jewellery: If silver jewellery looks good on you, you have a cool undertone. But if gold jewellery looks better on you, you have a warm undertone. If you happen to be one of those lucky few who look fantastic in either, you have a neutral undertone.
Veins: If jewellery isn’t helping you figure out your undertone, then look at the veins in your wrist. Do they appear blue? If yes, then you have a cool undertone. If your veins appear green, then you have a warm undertone. But, if you have a mix of both, then you probably have a neutral undertone.
