When you’re considering having full lip pigmentation, settling on an actual colour for your lips is very exciting. You’ll no doubt have a few ideas in your mind. Talk to your friends and they’ll add even more possibilities into the mix. Ask your family and they’ll all have their own ideas. So, how can you make the right decision for you?
You may love the idea of having the biggest, boldest reddest look. But, are you sure that would look right on you? It’s crucial to settle on a lip look that suits your skin tone, your overall general look and your lifestyle. Additionally, take a look at these other general rules:
- Know your skin undertone. The easiest way to pinpoint your skin undertone is to have a look at the veins on your wrist. If they look green, you have yellow, warmer undertones. If they’re blue, you have pink, cooler undertones. If they’re a mixture of both or you can’t quite tell, you’re one of the lucky ones who can get away with virtually any colour whatsoever!
- Know what shades go with what tone. If you have yellow undertones to your skin, you need to choose a warm lip colour, whereas, if your skin is cooler, purplish or blue tones work well.
- Don’t be afraid to have a go! There is nothing more fun than experimenting with all the lipsticks in your makeup bag. Look at each shade with objectivity once you’ve applied it. See what ones look best on you!
By following the above steps, you can easily narrow down your options for full lip pigmentation. You also need to take your own personal preferences into account too. If you simply adore a colour and feel that it looks good on you, but it doesn’t follow the skin tone ‘rules’, don’t be afraid to speak to your lip tattooing professional for advice and input.
