A Quick Guide on How to Determine Your Skin Type

No comments

Pop quiz! Who knows their skin type? Hopefully, you said, “yes,” but if you didn’t, you’re not alone. Many people don’t know their skin type, and as a result, they aren’t maximizing their skin care regimen. It’s critical to know how to determine your skin type because you should be using products that work to make your skin healthier. By using the wrong skin care products, you could be further damaging your skin. We’ve put together this guide to help you quickly determine your skin type and how to care for it.

 

Normal Skin

Characteristics of Normal Skin

Normal skin is balanced between oily and dry, meaning beauties with normal skin rarely complain of oily or dry skin. The skin is not excessively shiny and does not become flaky or cracked. Normal skin does not have pores that are easily visible. Normal skin generally has few lines and wrinkles, and the skin tone is usually even.

How to Care for Normal Skin

You may assume because your skin is normal that you have perfect skin. In fact, skin types can change in response to hormones, ages, and life events, so normal skin is not always a guarantee. Those with normal skin should cleanse with a gentle cleanser, use moisturizer, and apply sunscreen to protect the skin.

 

Oily Skin

Characteristics of Oily Skin

The fastest way to determine oily skin is by the sheen the appears on the skin. Oily skin is prone to acne and blemishes as the sebum blocks the pores. The skin will appear greasy throughout the day, and it is hard to apply long-lasting makeup.

What Causes Oily Skin?

It can be the result of hormonal changes or genetic factors. Oily skin is caused by an excess of sebum production. Sebum is what keeps the skin soft and hydrated, but in excess, it will leave that sheen on the skin.

How to Care for Oily Skin

While you may be tempted to opt for products that dry out the skin, the chemicals in those products can trigger the skin to produce even more oil. Instead, you should focus on gently exfoliating the skin two to three times a week to remove the buildup of dead skin and oil trapped in the pores. You should also use an oil-free, lightweight moisturizer to keep the skin soft. It’s important that you do not touch your face. Your hands have bacteria that can cause a small breakout to become a large one. So hands off!

 

Dry Skin

Characteristics of Dry Skin

Dry skin generally appears flaky, scaly patches, or tightness. The skin may look dull and even feel itchy.

What Causes Dry Skin?

Dry skin is usually the result of genetic factors. The skin does not produce enough sebum to keep the skin soft and hydrated, so the skin becomes dried out.

How to Care for Dry Skin

It’s critical that you use a moisturizer daily to ensure your skin is getting the moisture it needs. You should use a creamy cleanser, as foaming cleansers can remove essential moisture from the skin. Cream cleansers and moisturizers contain more oil which can be absorbed into the epidermis to hydrate the tissue better.

 

Combination Skin

Characteristics of Combination Skin

This is the most common skin type. Combination skin features oily and dry skin. Meaning some areas of the face are dry while other parts have excessive oil. Most commonly, the skin is oily in the T-Zone. The T-Zone included the nose, chin, and forehead. The dry skin usually appears on the cheeks.

How to Care for Combination Skin

You may consider using two moisturizers. Why? Because your skin has different needs. You may seem some big changes by using a heavy moisturizer on the dry areas, and a lighter moisturizer on the oily area. It’s also important to exfoliate to unblock the pores.

 

Sensitive Skin

Characteristics of Combination Skin

Sensitive skin can be one of the hardest skin types to live with. Sensitive skin is prone to redness, irritation, inflammation, acne, and blemishes.

How to Care for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin can be frustrating, but there are ways to prevent any reactions. Before applying any product to your face, you should test a small amount of product on your arm. If you have no sign of a reaction, then test another small amount of product behind the ear before applying it directly to the face. We suggest only introducing one product at a time to ensure your products do not cause a reaction. Opt for fragrance-free products that are as natural as possible.

In order to properly evaluate your skincare routine, you need to know how to determine your skin type. Now that you have narrowed your skin type to either oily, dry, combination or normal, you can create a skincare regimen that will give you healthy, glowing skin. It’s important to care for your skin according to your skin type to see maximum results. After all, no one ever regretted taking good care of their skin.

How to Remove Makeup

How to Remove Makeup

No comments

Beauty sleep is a real thing. Your skin repairs itself while you sleep. Everyone wants fresh, glowing skin, but you don’t just wake up with flawless skin. You must be in the routine of removing your makeup the night before. The skin can’t restore itself throughout the night if your pores are clogged. Read on to learn how to remove makeup completely to ensure you are getting the best beauty sleep possible.

Why Do You Need to Remove Your Makeup?

At the end of the day there is a lot more on your skin than just makeup. You have a build up of makeup, dirt, sweat, bacteria, and even pollution. These can cause dehydration, pigmentation, fine lines, and dullness. You should remove all traces of these substances before going to bed in order to clear your pores and give your skin a chance to breathe.

How to Remove Makeup Properly

Tie Back Your Hair

It’s important that you wash everywhere on your face, including the hairline. Chances are that you aren’t removing makeup along your hairline if you aren’t tying back your hair. Be sure to wash the hairline to prevent clogged pores and breakouts.

Beauty Tip: Use a terry headband to push your hair out of the face without denting your hair.

Begin With a Cleanser

A daily cleanser is one of the easiest ways to remove makeup. Take a foaming cleanser and massage it into your skin. Don’t forget to wash the hairline, around the ears, and under the chin. If you have long-lasting makeup that is hard to remove, you can use a makeup remover wipe first. Don’t rush this step. Rubbing your skin to quickly or roughly can damage your skin. Take the time to properly remove all makeup and debris from the face.

Beauty Tip: Before washing your face, fill the sink with hot water and hover your face above the water. The steam will open your pores and will make it easier to remove makeup, sweat, and dirt.

Apply a Cleansing Oil

A cleansing oil will prevent dry skin. Take a dollop of an oil-based cleanser and massage it into the skin in circular motions.  It’s recommended to use a foaming cleanser and an oil cleanser to ensure that all makeup and debris is completely removed from the skin.

Take extra care when removing makeup from the eyes. The skin around the eyes is thinner, so it’s more prone to damage and infection. We know it may be hard to completely remove your waterproof mascara, but you absolutely need to remove it all. Take cotton balls and soak them in your oil cleanser. (You can also use eye makeup remover pads.) Then hold it over your eyes to soften the makeup. Don’t rub from side to side. Instead, wipe downwards to avoid pulling on the eyelashes in an unnatural way.

Finish Off With Your Nighttime Skincare Routine

Many women take this step for granted. Just removing makeup won’t ensure glowing skin. Whether you use one moisturizer or if you commit to a 10-step skincare routine, you should hydrate the skin before going to bed.

Get the most out of your beauty sleep. It’s important that you know how to remove makeup completely in order to protect your delicate skin. Makeup removing wipes won’t be enough. Invest in yourself and commit to washing your face every night with a foaming cleanser, oil cleanser, and find a nighttime skincare routine that works for you. You’ll love waking up to fresh, glowing skin every morning.

Are You Brushing Your Hair the Wrong Way?

Are You Brushing Your Hair the Wrong Way?

No comments

Brushing your hair may seem as natural as opening a door or washing your hands, but it’s not that simple. Despite how mundane it seems, there are wrong ways to brush your hair. Surprised? We were too. By brushing your hair the wrong way, you could actually be doing damage to your hair. Take a minute to answer these six questions to determine if you are brushing your hair incorrectly and learn how to brush your hair the right way.

Answer These Questions to Discover if You Are Brushing Your Hair the Wrong Way

Do You Brush Wet Hair?

You should never brush your hair when it is wet. When hair is wet, the hair fibers are filled with moisture and causes them to stretch. The stretched strands are now weaker, and it is easy to create breakage. Allow your hair to dry before using a brush.

Do You Detangle Your Hair With a Paddle Brush?

Paddle brushes should be used when drying hair. They are perfect for creating tension and smoothing the hair during a blowout. But they should not be used to detangle the hair. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your gorgeous locks.

Are You Using Dirty Brushes?

When was the last time you cleaned your hairbrush? Hairbrushes should be washed once a week. The bristles of the brush get clogged from stray hairs and excess products. Each time you brush your hair, some of your styling products are being deposited onto your brush. To clean your hairbrush, you need to remove any stray hairs then run the brush under warm water. Then add shampoo work it into the bristles. Rinse off the brush then let it dry on a towel.

Are You Brushing Too Much?

You may remember someone telling you as a small girl that you need to brush your hair 100 times for beautiful locks. That is completely false. Over brushing can be damaging to your hair. The purpose of brushing your hair is to eliminate knots and tangles. Once they are gone, you should stop brushing.

Do You Start From the Ends of Your Hair?

Have you ever noticed that your hairstylist always starts to brush at the ends of your hair? That’s because brushing from the roots can pull hair out of the follicle. Start by combing your hair a few inches from the bottom and slowly work your way up to the root as your remove tangles.

Do You Use the Right Brush for Your Hair?

Each hairbrush has a specific use. A vent brush is designed to dry hair quickly when used with a hairdryer. A cushion brush is perfect for smoothing and detangling hair. A round brush is ideal for creating a smooth rounded finish on all hair lengths. A paddle brush is ideal for smoothing the hair, especially during blowouts. Be sure to use the right hairbrush based on what you are looking to accomplish.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you need to change how you brush your hair. By brushing your hair the wrong way, you could be doing damage to your gorgeous locks. Make these quick changes when brushing your hair, and you will see softer hair in no time.

How to Make Lipstick Matte

How to Make Lipstick Matte

No comments

Matte lipsticks have blown us all away this year. Even as the seasons change, this lip color trend is staying with us. Matte lips bring a new level of sophistication to our lips that we just love. But for many of us, we struggle to find our favorite shade of lip color in a matte version or some of us are on a budget and may not need another lipstick. If you’re in love with matte lips, but you don’t want to buy a whole new collection of lipsticks, then this beauty hack is perfect for you. With just translucent powder and tissue paper, you learn in seconds how to make lipstick matte. 

How to Make Matte Lipstick at Home

Learn how to make lipstick matte in just four easy steps. This method is the most popular, and our favorite, way to create DIY matte lipstick. It’s super easy, and most of you probably have all of the items you need.

Items Needed:

Steps by Step Instructions:

  1. Apply lipstick as usual. Be sure to apply the lipstick evenly, so you won’t have to do touch-ups later.
  2. Blot lips with tissue paper. Place the tissue between your lips and press down on your lips. Then open your mouth and remove the tissue.
  3. Using a clean makeup brush or sponge, apply a light amount of translucent powder all over your lips.
  4. Press your lips together to distribute the powder evenly. If your lips are still shiny, then add a little more powder until lips are fully matte.

Beauty Tip: Need help finding the perfect lipstick? Read our blog post Find the Best Lipstick for Your Skin Tone to discover your ideal shade!

Bonus: 5 Easy Ways to Enhance Your Matte Lips

  1. Exfoliate your lips. Matte lips tend to magnify flaws, so use a lip exfoliator to remove dead skin from your lips.
  2. Moisturize your lips. Moisturized lips not only look better, but they hold color longer. Apply lip balm before adding lipstick.
  3. Apply concealer. It may sound strange, but adding concealer to the lips will make the lip color look more vibrant.
  4. Apply lip liner. Lip liner prevents the lipstick color from bleeding onto the skin, and will make your lips look absolutely perfect!

Now that you know how to make lipstick matte, you have a whole new way to rock your favorite lip color. By using a lipstick you already own and translucent powder, this DIY makeup hack helps you make the most out of your favorite products. So have fun and get creative!

A Holiday Guide to Thanksgiving Makeup

A Holiday Guide to Thanksgiving Makeup

No comments

Thanksgiving planning is already stressful enough. Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner or heading to the airport to fly back home, there’s no denying that you probably have a lot on your mind. The last thing you need to stress about is how to do your makeup. We’ve broken down exactly what your Thanksgiving makeup look should be.

Your Guide to Thanksgiving Makeup

If you’re staying home

There’s no shame in needing some well-deserved “me” time.  Instead of wearing makeup, you should take this rare opportunity of silence to pamper yourself. Rejuvenate your skin with a face mask. Read our blog post on The Secret to Glowing Skin to discover the perfect face mask for your skincare needs. While you are bringing life back to your skin, you should also bring some life back to your lips. The chilly weather can cause our lips to dry out, and who wants that with mistletoe season right around the corner? Try a lip pack to nourish and hydrate your lips.

If you’re hosting dinner

You already need to plan the menu, the decorations, and make sure you have enough desserts to go around. The last thing you need to worry about is your makeup while cooking all day. We suggest going for a simple Thanksgiving makeup look. Begin by applying a primer and use a light foundation to smooth out your skin tone. Apply just a bit of a cheek tint and finish off with some waterproof mascara. Waterproof makeup and primers will ensure your makeup doesn’t sweat off as you prepare a beautiful meal over a hot stove.

If you’re meeting the parents

Finally….it’s time to meet your significant other’s parents. If that wasn’t stressful enough, you know you want to look your absolute best. We suggest choosing your favorite natural makeup look. Wear makeup that makes you feel confident and beautiful without being too flashy. You should highlight your natural beauty. Help make your eyes pop by adding two coats of Palladio 4D Boost Volumizing Mascara and wear a light pink lip gloss or lip stain. The parents are sure to fall in love with you!

If you’re visiting your family

Nothing like home sweet home ….unless all of your relatives are shoved together under one roof. (Talk about a rowdy crowd.) Keep it simple by going for a natural, elegant look. Pull out your favorite Palladio Eyeshadow Palette and create a quick smokey eye. Add a quick swipe of your Palladio Liner Crayon and Palladio Curls Rule Curling Mascara for full, plump eyelashes. Then finish off with a matte lipstick for gorgeous lips.

If you’re meeting old friends

Whether you’re meeting up with your old high school friends or college roommates, you’re going to want to appear mature and fabulous. A dramatic cat eye with the Palladio Liquid Eyeliner will give off that perfect mature vibe and prove that you’ve come a long way since your blue eyeshadow days of the past. Pair your cat eye with some bold long lashes with the Palladio Maxxxlash Lengthening Mascara to really make your friends jealous.

There you have it. Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks for the people who make your life so amazing. So you don’t need to spend hours doing your makeup to impress the people who mean the world to you. So whether you’re staying in or hosting dinner for the whole family, find a makeup look that is simple, classy and highlights your natural beauty.

The holidays are stressful enough as it is. Travel, while exciting, can certainly add another layer of stress. Let us help keep things simple. We’ve created a list of holiday travel beauty essentials that you’ll need on your holiday vacation. Everything on this list will take care of all of your beauty needs as you jet-set across the country to spend the holidays with someone special.

Don’t Forget to Pack These Holiday Travel Beauty Essentials

Eye Mask

Some airlines do offer eye masks, but why take the risk? Taking a nap on the plane is a great place to catch up on your beauty sleep. You don’t want to miss that opportunity. Pop in some earplugs and throw on a cute eye mask for a relaxing mid-flight nap.

Moisturizer

It feels as though airplanes just suck all the moisture out of your face. When you get on the plane, head to the bathroom and dab a little moisturizer to seal in hydration and give yourself glowing skin. You may need to re-apply before landing to bring that healthy glow back to your face.

Face Wash

After traveling for miles in an airplane, taxi, or train, you will need a good face wash to feel refreshed. Pack a cleansing face wash to remove any dirt and sweat easily. You’ll feel rejuvenated in no time.

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is your best friend, especially on long-haul flights. Dry shampoo will quickly banish oily roots to give you flawless second-day hair that will smell and look great. Discover 7 Surprise Uses for Dry Shampoo to see how else it can help you while you travel.

Mini Hair Straightener

Your hotel will have shampoo, conditioner, and a blow dryer, but for some of us, that isn’t enough. Pack a mini flat iron so you can straighten or even curl your hair in the comfort of your hotel room.

Makeup Essentials

For those of us with a giant makeup collection, it may be hard to narrow down your makeup essentials. We suggest packing an eyeshadow pallet, so you have several options of color to choose from. Pack your favorite concealer to seal away any dark spots and unwelcome holiday acne. We love the Palladio I’m Blushing 2-in-1 Cheek & Lip Tint. It’s perfect for adding subtle color to cheeks and lips.

Beauty Tip: Before heading to the airport, apply an instant eyebrow tint for six weeks of rich eyebrow color. Who doesn’t love no-hassle eyebrows?

The important thing to remember when traveling is to keep it simple. You don’t want to carry tons of makeup and beauty essentials. You should take only as much product as you need, and try to pack products that can serve more than one purpose. You will also want to pack products that will keep your skin hydrated. It all comes down to only packing that holiday travel beauty essentials that you actually need and will use every day.

10 Makeup Myths We Need to Stop Believing

10 Makeup Myths We Need to Stop Believing

No comments

There is a never-ending supply of makeup advice out there. Whether you’ve been wearing makeup for decades or you’re a beauty newbie, there is always something new to learn. Unfortunately, with all of this makeup know-how, some lousy advice is sure to get around. We’ve rounded up some of the most common makeup myths that even the most experienced beauties fall prey to.

Common Makeup Myths We Should Forget

You Should Pump Your Mascara For More Product

This is not only false, but it can also ruin your mascara. Pumping mascara allows air into the tube, which can cause bacteria to become trapped inside. Bacteria can cause those nasty eye infections, and no one wants that. It can also cause your mascara to dry out more quickly and become flaky. If your mascara has started to dry out, then it’s time to toss it.

Expensive Cosmetics Are Better Than The Cheaper Brands

This isn’t always true. Just take a look at the best beauty blogs and gurus. Some people swear by their $60 foundation while others can’t live without their $6 foundation. There are good and bad products in all prices ranges, and it ultimately comes down to works for you. Why mess with perfection?  There is no shame in being loyal to a cheaper brand if it gives you exactly what you’re looking for without breaking the bank.

Match Your Foundation to Your Wrist

Shopping for a new foundation can be frustrating enough, so you don’t want to take home the wrong shade. Each part of your body gets different amounts of sun exposure, so your skin tone will vary all over. Your wrist and face likely are two different shades, so matching a foundation to your wrist won’t do you any good. Instead, test a small amount of foundation on your jawline. Don’t get discouraged if it takes a few times to find the right shade. It’ll be worth it.

Makeup Causes Breakouts

While it’s possible that breakout can be caused by a bad reaction to the ingredients, more often than not, breakouts are caused by poor hygiene and contaminated products. Poor storage and bacteria can lead to breakouts. Every day and night you should make sure all oil, makeup, dirt, and grime is removed from the face by washing with a cleanser.

You Don’t Need Sunscreen If Your Products Have SPF

It’s true that many makeup brands offer at least some SPF protection, but those won’t cut it if you’re outside for longer than a few minutes. You should wear a light sunscreen underneath your makeup.

Beauty Tip: Sunscreen also serves as an excellent makeup base.

Waterproof Mascara is Better Than Regular Mascara

Unless you know you’re going to be around water or you’ll be bawling your eyes out, then you probably don’t need waterproof mascara. You can still achieve those long, luxurious lashes with a regular mascara. Waterproof mascara is tough to wash off and cause you to pull out your lashes accidentally. Since it’s so difficult to wash off, many women go to bed with traces of their mascara still on. This can cause your lashes to become brittle and lead to breakage.

Makeup Doesn’t Expire

You may not want to hear this, but your makeup does have a shelf life. Once a product has been opened, it has become exposed to air and bacteria. Most makeup products list how long the product can be used after opening on the back of the bottle. Don’t know if your makeup is expired? Check out our blog How to Tell If You’re Using Expired Makeup. Don’t get too sad. What a great excuse to go makeup shopping!

You Can Go to Sleep With Makeup On

We would never suggest going to bed with makeup on. Your skin renews itself while you sleep, and makeup makes it more difficult to do so. Makeup clogs the pore and dehydrates the skin, making it hard to keep your skin soft and smooth. Be sure to wash off all makeup before bed with a cleanser, and apply a nighttime moisturizer to get glowing skin every morning.

You Can Use the Same Foundation Shade All Year Long

Again, we know how frustrating foundation shopping can be, but don’t you want to look amazing? In the summer, your skin will likely become slighter darker and more tan, so you may need to adjust your foundation color compared to what you wear in the fall and winter.

You Don’t Need to Wash Your Makeup Brushes if You Don’t Share

Bacteria are everywhere, and your brushes come into contact with other things besides you. The bathroom counter, the sink, and the makeup bottle are just a few things that makeup brushes can come into contact with. By not cleaning your makeup brushes for a long time, you are giving bacteria plenty of time to grow. This can not only ruin your brushes but can lead to breakouts and infections.

Beauty Tip: Don’t forget to wash your beauty sponges too. Check out our blog post on How to Clean Makeup Sponges to sanitize your beauty sponges and blenders properly.

Debunking any bad makeup advice is essential. These makeup myths can cause breakouts and cost us tons of money to replace products. We all want our makeup to last as long as possible, so by following correct makeup advice, we can get the most out of our products. Now you can feel confident that you are doing the best you can with your makeup products since we’ve debunked these makeup myths for you.

Nail Tools for the Perfect DIY Manicure

Nail Tools for the Perfect DIY Manicure

No comments

Wouldn’t you agree that there is just something awesome about having beautiful nails?  Whether you prefer to head to the nail salon for a fresh manicure or love to do your own nails in the middle of a Netflix binge, there is something wonderful about having pretty nails. While perfect nails are always the ultimate goal, it can be hard to create them yourself. But having the right nail tools can make it easier to achieve those Instagram-worthy nails, even at home.

Manicure Nail Tools

Nail File

What’s the easiest way to create salon-quality nails? Make sure all of your nails are cut and filed the same shape with the help of a nail file.The larger grit, or rougher side, helps you file your fingernails into the desired shape. The finer grit, or smoother side, will buff and smooth the nail. If all else fails, a perfect nail shape will go a long way!

Beauty Tip: Only file in one direction. It will prevent the edge of the nail from tearing.

Cuticle Pusher and Clipper

This nail tool pushes the cuticle off of the nail. A cuticle pusher allows you to apply nail polish to all of the nail. The cuticle clipper can be used to remove cuticles from the skin carefully. Be careful only to cut the dead skin. Cutting live skin can lead to infection. Ouch!

Cuticle Softener

A cuticle softener is perfect for quickly removing dead skin and overgrown cuticles. Soak your fingers for 3-5 minutes before applying a cuticle softener. Use an orangewood stick to push back cuticles gently.

Beauty Tip: Many cuticle softeners can be used to remove surface stains on nails.

Nail Buffer

Nail buffing eliminates ridges and jagged edges while increasing the overall shine of your nails. A nail buffer combined with nail buffing cream can improve circulation, remove stains, and help nail polish adhere more easily.

Beauty Tip: Don’t know how to use nail buffing cream? Check out our Ultimate Guide to Nail Buffing Cream for a more in-depth explanation. It will change the way you do your nails!

Top Coat

Sorry ladies, but top coats aren’t optional. If you want your manicure to last for a long as possible, then you will need a layer of top coat to seal in all of your hard work. Top coats prevent chipping, extend the life of your nail polish, and creates that beautiful glossy appearance.

As professional nail technician Tammy Taylor once said, “Your nails are a way to speak your style without having to say a word.” To show off your best nails, you need the right tools for the job. Nail tools make it easy to achieve salon-quality nails easily. With a little love and practice, you can have beautiful nails in no time!

Find the Best Lipstick for Your Skin Tone

Find the Best Lipstick for Your Skin Tone

No comments

“Of course, true beauty comes from within. Lipstick just adds a little pizzazz.” Who couldn’t agree with that? Whether you’re rocking full-face makeup or going for a natural look, a touch of lipstick can add the perfect pop. But it can be hard choosing the right color. There are hundreds of lipstick colors out there. How do you know which is the best lipstick for you?

Well, it all comes down to your skin tone. There are three main categories of skin tones: cool, warm, and neutral. Each skin undertone pairs well with certain lipstick shades that will take your makeup to the next level. These rules are by no means set in stone, but knowing your skin’s undertones will help make the job easier!

Cool Undertones

If you answer yes to all or most of these, then you have cool undertones.

  • Do you have red, pink, or a blueish hue to your skin?
  • Do you burn easily in the sun?
  • Does silver jewelry complement your skin tones?
  • Do the veins on your wrist look blue?
  • Do you tend to lean towards blue, green, pink, or purple clothes?  

What Lipstick Shades Look Best?

Blue or purple shaded undertones will look best on your skin tone. That doesn’t mean you should steer clear of red lipsticks. Instead of choosing the more orangey shades, opt for the bluish reds. After all, Aubrey Hepburn once said, “There is a shade of red for every woman.”

The Best Lipstick For Your Cool Undertones

Palladio Herbal Lipstick – Chianti

 

Warm Undertones

If you answer yes to all or most of these, then you have warm undertones.

  • Do you have a golden, olive, or yellow hue to your skin?
  • Do you tan easily?
  • Does gold jewelry look amazing on you?
  • Do the veins on your wrist look green?
  • Do you prefer yellow, orange, brown, red, or ivory clothes?

What Lipstick Shades Look Best?

Warm shades of lipstick will look amazing on your skin tone. You can go for the red or orange colors.

The Best Lipstick for Warm Undertones
