This a little guide to choose your best red lipstick that will suite you as best as possible!
As a fisrt ster look at you wrist in natural light. You will know by the colour undertones of your wrist which undertone of lipstick is going to suite you best.
If you have: blue veins - you have cool undertones
olive veins - warm undertone.
And if you cannot tell, you have both!
I have cool undertone, so cool undertones in lipsticks are suiting me the best,
In this post I am showig you 2 lipstick:
Bourjois Rouge Edition in 15 (warm undertones)
Max Factor in Scarlet Ghost 720 (cool undertone)
In the second picture you an see the both lipstick tried on my wrist and Bourjois doesn´t pop as much as MaxFactor does.
also there is another method how to figure out you´re skin undertone. It is by jewelery you wear. If silver suites you better than gold, you have cool undertones. If gold suites you better, than warm undertones are right for you. And if you are wearing bith, than you can also wear both undertones.
i hope you liked and stay tuned for another post about red lips.
I start with applying my make up (Rimmel Stay Matte in 200 Soft Beige), it is great make-up, has perfect coveridge, but I don´t like that if I use too much of it, it´s cakey.
Then I´m continuing with my concealer (Maybellin Affiniton in 02 Natural). I found it in one make-up video by MichellePhan and I love it, I´ve been buying it for 2 years. It has perfect coveridge and still really light texture.
I´m using pressed powder by Pupa in number 02, maybe.. It´s so used up and broken so I really cannot tell you, guys, more than a brand!
Also I love using blushes, they can make a huge difference in your make-up. I like changing two by Pupa, one is rose colour with little bit of sparkle (Luminys) and another one in orangy colour, which makes my skin pop.
Lately, I´ve been using highligher by L´Oréal Paris - Lumi Magique in 2 Medium. I bought it, because I wanted to try a new concealer and I liked packaging. But I chose too light colour, so for covering imperfection it is unuseful for me. But I started to use as a highligher and as a highlidhter it is perfect!!! Here is a picture of Kim K., a master of highlighting and contouring face. In the picure are shown areas where you should apply highlighter and also contour.
By the way, I´m still looking for a good contouring tool.
