Did you know you can read into a person’s character and mood through the colour of their lipstick? There are a lot of general meaning behind colours. This might not be that surprising.
Choose your lipstick according to your skin tone and and let it complement your eye colour, not just your personality. Finding the perfect shade can contribute to making your skin appear more radiant, your eyes appearing brighter and even flatter your facial structure!
Red – The most popular lipstick choice, and there’s a shade to suit all of us. This color demands respect. Deep, dark reds emit passion and energy, signaling a woman feels sexy and sensuous. While studies have shown that brighter red pouts might help in bringing better career prospects. Always aim for a red with blue hues, as this will make teeth appear whiter. There is a big BUT, when it comes to reds that shimmer…
TIP: Lay low on shiny red lipstick when working at the office (or office at home) as it might be sending a different message than what you were aiming for, drawing all attention to your mouth instead of what you actually have to say. Next to that it makes you much less approachable.
Pink – represents femininity and youth. It also represents friendship, affection, harmony, inner peace, and approachability. Pink is the sweet side of the color red.
Natural – Muted shades always look fresh and (if you skip the mismatching lip pencil; yes, I see you…) never overdone, making it great for the office. It exudes professionalism, whilst keeping you looking down-to-earth and approachable.
Opt for your true lip shade which means a colors that comes close to your natural color, or a shade slightly darker to even your lip tone and make you appear ‘done’ in seconds. This is an ultimate accessory for women of all ages. This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘let your lips do the talking’, don’t you think?
Have fun! xA
