Bright is NOT Always Right!

Beauty, Lifestyle December 13, 2010

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this season’s uber huge trend, bright lips, does not work for everyone.  The hot pinks, oranges, purples, and reds coating the pouts of celebs from NY to LA, must be slathered wisely.  Like any other make up, consider your undertone.  Warm undertones have hints of gold and yellow so think about reds and pinks are possible but tricky.  Try warm pinks and amaranths, stay away from light pink or pink with blue undertones.  Reds should be rich and deep while oranges, should never go on your lips but if they must, go for a bright rather than a dark.  Cool undertones, you have hints of pink and red in your skin.  Pale pinks are preferable and reds can boost your color with the right accessories.  You can even go blue and purple with little worry.  But be careful not to allow your lip color to overpower your look.  Allow your pretty faces to shine through.
