10 Lipstick Shades For Blue Skin Tone
Ever come across a lipstick shade that looks oh-so-awesome on your friend yet when you try out the same it doesn’t look good on you? Well it’s probably cause the lipstick colour doesn’t suit your skin undertone. Everyone has undertones that are either yellow or pink. The ones with yellowish undertone are the warmer complexioned people. We Indians generally have yellow undertones. While people with pink or blue undertones are cool complexioned people.
So obviously before you choose a lipstick it’s important that you get to know your skin tone. There are a few tricks to know that. For example, try noticing your vein colour, does it appear blue? Then you belong to the blue under-tone group. Or else you can try by holding silver or gold jewellery against your skin (ignoring your personal preference), if you think silver suits you more then yesss you are a blue toned soul. So now that you know your skin tone let’s look at some of the colours that may suit you.
Folks with blue undertone should always look for shades with blue or purple undertones in them. For those who are fair skinned with cool undertone you can go with soft muted mauves, pinks light mocha or nudes even bold and bright pinks or reds work well on these skin types only thing is that whatever you choose just make sure your lipstick shade has blue or purple tones in it.
The ones who are medium skinned with cool undertones they can go for rosy pinks, pomegranates or cranberries. But just try and avoid nudes cause they have a tendency to give you a washed out look.
