Choosing the right lipstick isn’t always easy! Nowadays there are bright, matte, creamy variants and many different colors and shades, how should you know what to choose? Here are some tips for what to consider when choosing lipstick.
Lipstick was already used in ancient Egypt and has long been an accepted and well-used beauty product around the world. The lipsticks we know today, which are manufactured based on beeswax, were invented in France in 1883. Since then, the range has increased significantly and today there are a variety of brands and designs of lipsticks.
When choosing lipsticks, you should primarily think about what results you want to achieve. If you want to achieve full, colorful lips, you need a creamy lipstick with an intense color tone. If you would rather have a matte, elegant tone, you should choose a matte lipstick. If you want to maintain and enhance your natural color, you should choose a so-called Liptint, which colors without being comprehensive.
The next step is to find a shade you like, which can be a bit difficult when you shop online and can’t try your way in the same way as in a store. However, a good advice is that if you have a light and sun-sensitive complexion, you probably fit in a bit colder shades, red with a blue undertone, for example. A slightly darker, less sun-sensitive complexion fits better in slightly warmer tones.
5 things to think about
- Choose lipstick according to the result you want to achieve. If you want fuller lips, choose a creamy and color-intensive lipstick. For more calm and elegance, choose a lipstick with a matte tone.
- If you have a tendency to get dry lips, be sure to choose a lipstick that also moisturizes, so you won’t be as easily dry.
- Liptint is a good option for those who want to accentuate and enhance your natural color. Lipstick is somewhere between lipstick and lip gloss.
- A light complexion usually fits better in colors with a cool undertone in the lipstick, while warmer shades suit a slightly darker complexion better.
- Fixing the lipstick with a lipstick is a good tip for getting the lipstick to stay longer.
