Lipstick Shades for Different Occasions

My friends keep on calling me every time they have an upcoming event or a date asking, “ooh Sheila which shade of lipstick should I apply.” Women we need to talk! But first, Part of the fun of buying a lipstick is picking out the best color. For some, the best color might be a deep red, while for others a light pink might be the ideal hue. It is important to match a lipstick with an outfit as well as there is no point in buying a brand new purple lipstick that will clash with everything in your wardrobe.

Matching colorful lipsticks with outfits is not as easy as it sounds. It will take some time to carefully consider each hue and look carefully to see whether it will clash or match a variety of outfits. Hold them up against each other or better yet, try buying the lipstick first and taking it out shopping to compare it in person with possible new outfits. Selecting one that suits your skin tone is imperative and selecting one that suits the ‘occasion’ is just good common sense. So if we’re all in agreement with the fore-mentioned, let’s find out which occasion/s is relevant to you and which type of lipstick/s would benefit you the most.

Now ladies, always remember to use a lipstick shade that is good for your skin color. It is one thing to know what kind of lipstick to use for a particular occasion and it is another thing to know how to make use of lipstick for your skin color. Do not make the mistake of using a shade of lipstick that does not suit your skin type. For example a very dark person using a certain kind of dark pink, it would look awkward. So whenever you are getting lipsticks or putting them on, get shades that fit you perfectly. However when applying a shade that doesn’t suit your skin tone it’s best to mix it up.
