Here Are 4 Major Reasons Why Some Lipsticks Don’t Look Good On You!

1. Undertone Clash

One of the major culprits behind lipstick shade mishaps is the clash of undertones. If your undertone is warm, and you’re trying on cool-toned lipstick, it can make you look washed out or even give you a sickly appearance. Similarly, if you have a cool undertone and opt for warm-toned lipstick, it can make your complexion appear dull. The key here is to determine your undertone (warm, cool, or neutral) and choose lipstick shades that complement it.

2. Lip Pigmentation Matters

The natural pigmentation of your lips can influence how a lipstick shade appears on you. If your lips are naturally dark, sheer or lighter shades may not show up well, resulting in a lacklustre effect. Conversely, if you have pale or less pigmented lips, vibrant or bold colours might appear too intense or overpowering. To overcome lip pigmentation issues, prep your lips before applying lipstick. And always make sure to use a brown lip liner that matches your lips to get that perfect nude look.

3. Skin Tone Harmony

Another crucial factor to consider is the harmony between your lipstick shade and your overall skin tone. For fair skin tones, try soft pinks, nude shades, or light corals. If you have medium skin, opt for rosy pinks, warm browns, or berry shades. Those with deeper skin tones can rock rich reds, plums, or bold berry hues.

4. Lip Shape and Size

The shape and size of your lips can also impact how a lipstick shade looks on you. Some shades may make thin lips appear even smaller, while others might overwhelm fuller lips. To enhance thin lips, opt for lighter shades with a touch of gloss or shimmer to create the illusion of fullness. For fuller lips, try deeper shades or bold colours to accentuate their natural shape. Lip liner can also be used to redefine lip contours and achieve a more balanced appearance.

Now that you know how to get the best out of your lipsticks go ahead, pucker up, and let your fabulous self shine!
