How to Pick Right Shade of Lipstick

Posted by beautytipsbank on

Learning how to select the right shade of lipstick is necessary for a perfect look because makeup does not get a complete look until we apply lipstick. When I learnt basic make up I asked my expert especially for the selection of right lipstick shade because there are so many shades and all are not going good for me.

Color trends come and go so the easiest way to pick the right shade of lipstick is choose it according to your skin tone. Now the question is this how you will come to know what type of skin tone you have? For this one of the best ways is to look at the veins of your arm. If they appear blue, you are cool toned, if they are green then you have warm toned. In this article I am discussing general guidelines for picking a lipstick shade, taken from various websites, beauty books, articles and beauty experts.
