Beauty How-To: Find The Right Shade Of Lipstick

A woman can never have too many lip colors, and with lipstick’s big fashion comeback it’s never been more true! Not sure which sticks to snab? Here are a few tricks and tips to help you find your best lip colors.Anyone Can Wear Red!
Every woman can wear red lipstick if the color is chosen correctly. Rules are made to be broken, but the following is almost always true: light complexions should stay away from dark tones, while dark complexions should stay away from light colors.

Shop at the Right Store
The absolute best way to start trying out new lipstick colors is to choose the right store. Sephora and MAC Cosmetics are great examples of stores that let you try before you buy.

Check Out the Stock
Never settle on just one shade of red. There are different shades of red lipstick that compliment different skin tones and you want to be sure all of your options are open before settling on just any one of them. Don’t be afraid to be picky because it will pay off in the end.

Try Them Out!
Using a cotton swab, rub some of the red lipstick onto your bottom lip. If the lipstick you’ve just applied to your lip is a shade or two darker than your natural lip color, you have a winner! It’s a great, simple trick that works every single time.

Buy More than One
Who says you can only wear one lipstick? If you try them all out and find that there are three shades of lipstick that work with your skin tone, get all of them and alternate. A woman can never have too many options.
