The right shade of lipstick is vital to get that perfect look. When it comes to shades of lipsticks every woman is spoilt for choices. The trick is to pick the color that actually suits your skin tone. All the beautiful lipstick shades will not look beautiful on you, only the ones that go best with your skin tone and undertone can give you those ideal lips.
In addition to that when you are planning to wear a lipstick you also need to consider the occasion and the time of the day to make it look actually great on you. Lipsticks make a part of the total face makeup, and hence you need to make it bold or subtle depending on the need of the whole makeup. In order to pick the shade of lipstick that will actually look good on you, first you need to know your skin tone and under tone.
The common Indian skin tones include fair, wheatish, dusky and dark. So, first you need to know your exact skin complexion. The next point is to know your skin undertone. Every woman has either a warm undertone or a cool undertone. If the veins in your arms appear green you have warm undertones and if they appear blue you have cool undertones.
Once you are clear about your skin complexion and the undertones of your skin you can opt for picking a lipstick that will go nicely with your skin. Read on to know the shades of lipstick that will go best for your particular skin complexion and undertone
