You need to pick a lipstick colour that is apt for your skin tone. To do this, you need to know your undertone, reports femalefirst.co.uk:
- Take a look at the veins on your wrists: If they appear 'blue or purple' you have cool undertones. If they appear 'green or olive' you have warm undertones. If you can't really decide, then you are probably neutral.
- Check jewellery that suits you: You look better in silver jewellery, you are cool toned. Gold jewellery is perfect for warm toned women. If both work for you, you are probably neutral.
A lipstick with a pink, red or blue undertone often looks better on cooler skin. A lipstick with rich yellow, peachy or golden undertones will compliment a warmer skin tone.
