The undisputed base of makeup, lipstick has been used for many years by women around the world. If, in ancient Greece, women tinted their mouths with crushed black fruits, it was Guerlain that launched on the market the first stick of lipstick in 1880. Since then, it has been available in many versions: from the wisest colors to the most extravagant. In this plethora of offers, it is sometimes difficult to be able to select the ideal lipstick. To do this, in this article we will help you choose your lipstick .
The first thing to consider when you want to choose your lipstick is to determine the color that will particularly highlight our face. Do you particularly like a color? Be careful, however, to check that it will suit you. Here are the main points to consider before validating your purchase:
Skin color is an essential criterion in choosing your lipstick . If you have fair skin, we advise you to bet on shades that match your complexion. In this sense, a nude or pinkish shade will be suitable.
You can also choose to give your smile a punchy edge by choosing a slightly orange lipstick. You can also dare real red for an evening, as long as you have a light hand on eye makeup.
If you have a medium to dark skin tone, you can afford to go for more original or more pronounced shades. dark lipsticks , in purple or chocolate shades, will suit you perfectly.
You can also choose colors containing more rosy or purplish pigments such as raspberry or fuchsia, which will give your face some pep. However, avoid shades that are too cold, such as beige, which will tend to make you look sad.
Know that black or mixed skin can afford almost anything in terms of mouth makeup . Brown or beige, discreet, will give relief to your lips, while bright shades, such as ruby or coral, will enhance your face.
Like skin tone, hair color is important in choosing your lipstick . Thus blondes, often having fair skin, should instead turn to discreet, cold or iridescent shades for a natural and sophisticated result.
Brunettes can opt for darker lip makeup , such as burgundy or plum, which will reveal a fair complexion. For brunettes with more pronounced complexions, applying make-up with bright colors will immediately give them a healthy glow.
Finally, those of us with red or Venetian blond hair can safely go for warm shades that will illuminate their complexion. Thus, coral, purple or brown lipsticks will be your allies, day and night.
The shape of the mouth will also have an impact on the shade to be chosen . In this sense, women with thin lips will choose a soft shade in order to provide maximum relief. Luscious mouths, on the other hand, will turn to a dark lipstick, preceded by an impeccable lip contour, done with a pencil or brush, which will allow the curve to be drawn.
Age is also a consideration when choosing your lipstick . Indeed, personal aspirations, the shape of the lips as well as the color of the complexion evolve over the years. Therefore, we will not go for the same lipstick depending on whether we are 20 or 60 years old.
We therefore advise the more mature among us to banish shades that are too dark, such as brown, which would have the effect of marking dark circles, lines and fine lines. Choose color! This will revive your complexion and make you look younger.
Lipstick is nowadays available in a multitude of textures : gloss, lip balm, lip lacquer or even lip marker ... it is not easy to choose . For this, two main categories stand out on the market:
Now more than ever, the composition of make-up and all cosmetic products are at the heart of consumers' concerns. A lipstick has a basic composition of animal, plant or synthetic origin.
We then find other components, more or less beneficial, some of which, such as lead, should be banned as advised by Femina magazine. On the other hand, we will favor moisturizing formulas enriched with antioxidant vitamins C and E, as well as lipsticks with UV filter if our environment requires it.
We hope that this article has enabled you to better understand how to choose the right lipstick among all the products that can be found on the shelves of physical cosmetics stores or in line. By considering your physical characteristics, choosing the right texture, and taking an interest in the composition of your lipstick stick, you will undoubtedly make the best choice.
