Know how to pick lip colours

London, Dec 8 : Your eyes might be set on a bold dark lip colour or something neutral, but check your vein colour and the type of jewellery that matches your skin tone before you reach for your pocket.

You need to pick a lipstick colour that is apt for your skin tone. To do this, you need to know your undertone, reports

- 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.
