Dry skin and chapped lips are universal winter symptoms. So, it stands to reason that you should choose your winter makeup wisely to avoid having cakey or uneven skin. Making sure your foundation and lipstick have textures that work with winter skin (which is dry) is one way to ensure that your makeup is winter-friendly.
Let’s examine the ideal lipstick texture for winter and how to wear it.
A Quick Guide to Cold Tones
If the veins in your wrist appear blue, silver jewelry flatters your skin tone, or your skin tends to burn in the sun before tanning, you have a cold undertone.
Especially in winter, it requires a little more attention when choosing lipstick.
The finest lipsticks for cool undertones feature undertones that are blue or purple (not to be confused with an actual blue or purple lipstick, though that would be equally as stunning). Consider cherry red as an example of a deep bluish red when opting for a red lip instead of one that leans more orange. Likewise, you can use a rosy, pink nude to intensify your lips’ natural blush for nude lips or use a taupe beige for a more understated appearance.
For Every Complexion, A universal Lipstick
Now that we’ve overcome the first challenge let’s explore the best lipstick-to-skin tone combinations.
The lipsticks that turn on in light pink and nude tones are best for pale winter skin, but you may also be brave with peach pink and coral.
Pink or peach-hued lipstick for fair skin with a warm undertone.
Choosing Dark Lipstick
In the opinion of cosmetics artist Bobbi Brown, the best-looking black lipstick is for women of color. Consider your lip color and skin tone when selecting the ideal deep or dark lipstick. Keep the following in mind when experimenting with deep hues for the first time:
Gloss is a compassionate way to wear a deep lip. Even women with lighter lips can pull off these hues by applying lip gloss, and it’s a beautiful look for the evening.
Going for a Nude Lipstick
Because the tone and tint may either liven up your natural lip color or make you appear unwell, finding a suitable nude lipstick can be challenging. Nude doesn’t always imply “flesh color” for lips.
Finding a shade that matches or is one shade darker than your inner lip is a good place to start when figuring out what “your” nude lip color is.
Tinted balms and glosses give your lips a little color while enhancing their natural color.
It may be simpler to choose a bright color (such as pink, orange, or red tone) than the ideal nude. However, feeling overwhelmed at the beauty counter is simpler because there are so many alternatives. Here are some suggestions if you’ve never found a flattering bright before:
The finish significantly alters the impact of a bright lip. For example, a matte lip adds strength and is more contemporary than a sheer formula, which is also youthful and fresh.
- A saturated satin or cream finish also looks classy.
- Based on your preferences, pick a color: Warmer tones give off a softer appearance, whereas cooler tones are frequently brighter.
- Always keep in mind that sheerer lip colors are more forgiving and adaptable.
Pick a lip color that makes you feel your best. If a coral color makes you feel confident but doesn’t follow the “rules,” go ahead and wear it.
