For years and years now, I always find myself stand before the makeup counters at the department stores and stare dazedly at the lipsticks(and other make-ups as well). To me they looked like crayons and chalks and a set of watercolor pallet ready for painting activities, standing at my attention. hehe.. They were all so darn cute, how was I to pick the perfect one? hehe.
Turns out picking the right shade of lipsticks or lip gloss isn't so complicated, after all. Of course it would take me 8 years of buying the wrong shades of lip color to find this out.
The most flattering lip tones will be one or two shades darker than your natural lip color, according to makeup artist Bobbi Brown. (hey, I thought about this even before I knew this! hehee)
Well for me, I think dark skin tones should wear dark reds and browns, brown-reds for olive skin and pinks for lighter skin tones. And your eye make-up and hair color also play a role in your choice of lip color.
Trust me, u would look so weird if u choose the wrong shades of everything! Be it your hair, your eyebrows, the color of your iris, and your make-up look..
Everything must be balanced and complement with each other. So that it would enhance your gorgeous-ness.. hehee ;p
And speaking of make-up.. I love to mix and match colors to make my very own signature lipcolor! hehe.
U can make your own unique color combinations by mixing lipgloss and lipstick colors on your lips to define your mouth, add color to your face and balance your overall look!
That way you can customize your lip color to create the effect you want and to match different clothes. =)
Anyways, I've tried a few colors of my lipstick and lipgloss just now..
and these are the results..huhuhu ;p
|Please excuse the cracked skin!|
hmm..so..what color do u think suits me the most?
I still prefer not to wear lipstick/lipgloss/lipbalm or anything on my lips...bcuz...pakai sekejap je...dah ku jilat bibirku ini! haha ;p
Plus, I'm blessed to have a natural pinkish lips(well,the color vary according to what I ate for the day, the weather, and the situation.huhu).. So I don't really need to apply lipstick every 1 hour or so..heh
Ingat lagi mase kat skola dulu cikgu tahan sebab ingat pakai lipstick gi skola...penat ku tenyeh dgn tisu sampai koyak..baru dia pecaya..haha
P/S: makan Nivea Lip Balm yang strawberry tu sedap la!!
P/SS: Please ignore my misai ok! I haven't really got the time to shave...haha.. and also, ignore the terkopek2-ness of my lips k!..iskk..
I seriously dunno how to use photoshop! I know,lame! haha ;p
