1Start with the basics

Start with the basics

Every girl should know the basics first. Everyone’s skin has undertones of either yellow or pink. You should determine which undertone is your skin tone. If you have yellow, then your skin tone is warmer and if it is pink, it is cooler. Warm colors can be the most attractive on a yellow skin. Knowing your undertone is enormously helpful when you are trying to figure out which lipsticks look best on you. Women who have a yellow skin tone, can definitely prefer to wear lighter colors like silver, nude colors of different kinds and blue or purple tones. If you have a pink skin tone, go ahead with all those bright-plush colors like blood red, hot pink. If you seem to have a mixture of both yellow and pink, you are the lucky owner of natural skin color. You can wear whichever color you want and rock the day! Also read home remedies for pink lips.

Shades of blue, orange, pink would be exceptionally great. If you are wearing a warm colored dress, wearing a warmer yet bright lipstick works.
