Picking the perfect pink lipstick
December 15, 2013, 12:31 pm

Pink is a hot commodity for beauty this season, so here are tips on how to select the best pink lipstick shade.

Incentive: The trick to using pink lipstick is to have a reason to wear it. A pink lipstick definitely gives off a feminine, pretty vibe, and has a way of complimenting all hair types, eye colors and makeup looks with ease. Pink also adds a pop of color to your makeup without being as dramatic as applying red to the lips.

Statement:  Choosing a pink lipstick from the color spectrum should be done with your personal style in mind. Consider if you want to go really bold, or with something that is just a slight hint of pink. Comfort level with color is definitely a factor as you don’t want to scare yourself with something really bold if you aren’t used to it.

Texture: The texture of a product also plays a role in how it appears. Deciding on the texture makes a huge difference in the final look, so decide on matte or glossy, sheer or opaque. Texture can also dictate whether you should do a solid color or a more sexy stained lip. There’s really no right or wrong answer with these makeup tips—choose the finish you like and apply accordingly.

Skin tone: Women tend to look at lip colors as a commentary to their skin tone and pink lipstick is an easier product to work with. No matter your skin tone or season, you can pick and choose your pink lip shade based on personal preference.

Whitener: If your pink lipstick has a purple undertone it will make your teeth look more yellow. Blue based pinks will make them look whiter. 

Beauty look:  Be spontaneous with a pink lip and choose your shade after deciding on your full face of makeup. It all depends on how bold the lipstick is. If it is super bold, try it with a shimmery eye and a little liner. As a result, you can mix and match metallic eyes with a loud, notice-me hue of hot or deep pink lip color; if the lipstick is more of a soft pink, than it looks great with a grey smoky eye.
