The secret to finding your best shade of lip color
Bobbi Brown celebrity makeup artist reveals her secret of how she finds the perfect lip color and how she uses that shade to add holiday colors that look just as great as that one, perfect lipstick. To find the perfect neutral lipstick, you need to determine the base color of your lips. Are you peachy pink, apricot, peachy brown, rosy pink or eggplant? This shade should always be brighter than your natural lips. To test shades, apply lipstick or gloss to one lip. If that color is just a shade or two deeper than your bare lip, then you’ve found your shade. Once you’ve found your perfect shade, you’ll know where to look for new lipsticks and glosses because you can always find something in your color family even if your favorite shade disappears. If your neutral color is in the rosy pink family, you can easily use a deep burgundy to dress up your lips.
