The Lipstick Bible

The Lipstick Bible


Lipstick for us is an absolute MUST. Not only is it a game changer for your overall make up perfection but it is a well know fact that lipstick really does make you feel more confident.

 “Swiping on a gorgeous lip color is the easiest (and quickest) way to look put-together”

However do you feel that you have trouble pulling off a lipstick?

Well, re-train that brain as you most certainly can and here are a list of the skin tone matched shades to brighten up your day and add that extra spring into your step!

 Perfectly Pink

Best known as the fun and flirty shade. A definite must have colour in your lipstick collection.

If you have fairer skin, try and avoid orange toned pinks and choose a brighter, hot shade of pink.Olive toned skin? Select a watermelon pink.

And if you are blessed with darker skin, bright berry pinks are sure to turn heads.

Get Nude

Ah, the nude lipstick. There are endless amounts of shades out there but finding your perfect match isn’t as easy as it may seem. This is one shade that needs to be mastered. A staple fashion accessory.

“Pro Tip – look for a shade that is just outside your natural lip colour”

For fairer toned skin, rosey or beige based lips are a must! Do try and stay away from peach coloured lippies as they will wash you out.

Medium toned lips are best suited to shades of deep beige and for the darker sexy vixens, your lips are just crying out for a deep mocha.

Red Seduction

Red lipstick is like the ferrari of lipsticks. Go fast, go hard or GO HOME!

In saying that, let’s make tour life a tad easier and help you select the perfect red for your skin tone.

Paler skin tones are best suited to an orange based shade. Olive skin deserves a very complimentary rich ruby red and last but not least, deeper skin is the lucky tone that can pretty much pull them all off. However, to make your trip to the beauty counter that little bit simpler, choose a seductive deep brick red.
