It won’t fix life’s problems or help you get out the door without the requisite daily craziness, but damn it if it doesn’t feel great sometimes to slap on some bright lips and pretend like you’ve got your stuff together.
I put on this neon pink lippie the other day and no fewer than five people commented on the bright shade, so I figured I’d put up a quick post on how to pick the right shade to rock this winter!
When your lips are (literally) doing all the talking, consider a monochromatic outfit to really make it pop, and to prevent the look from being too overpowering.
The last thing you want with a bright lipstick is to see dry, cracked lips. So make sure you pick one with a moisturizing base that will keep you hydrated!
Choosing the right shade of bright lipstick will be contingent on knowing which category your skin falls into–warm or cool?
The rule of thumb? Flip over your forearm and take a peek at the visible veins on your wrist. If they appear bluish, you’re likely cool-toned. If they appear to be more on the green spectrum, you’re likely warm-toned.
