Looking at the lipstick section at any given beauty store is quite possibly one of the most overwhelming experiences I have ever encountered. I’m sure you can all relate… walk in telling yourself you want a new cool lipstick like this or that celebrity wears, walk to all of the lipsticks, try on entirely too many, and walk out empty handed! It’s so hard to make a decision, because it seems like the colors never look as cool on you as they do on others. Lipstick is such a grown up decision. You grow up fantasizing about wearing lipstick and once you’re old enough you get scared. I’ve concluded that there are two factors when it comes to lipstick, your skin tone and your confidence.
Now I know you’re tired of hearing the same old, “confidence is key” phrase, you get it, we all get it! However, it’s easier said than done. When wearing lipstick confidence is such a huge factor. Anytime you try a new bold lipstick your head is going to reject it and tell you that you look like a clown, you’re doing too much, or you’re trying too hard. DON’T LISTEN! ( ok well sometimes you should.) So many times I’ve had a new lipstick and was uncertain about wearing it out, but gotten tons of compliments on it. Then I see pictures I took that night and I’m like “who’s that hot chick!” Wear your lipstick with confidence and you’ll look and feel great.
Now not all lip shades will compliment each skin tone. It depends on if you have a warm skin tone or cooler skin tone. That’s why lipsticks come in so many variations of the same color, because every skin tone is different. It takes time, patience, and lots of lipstick remover to find which is best for you. But I promise the time and effort is worth it!
