How to Find the Perfect Lipstick

In the realm of beauty, the right lipstick can be the finishing touch to any makeup look. A perfectly chosen lipstick can not only complete your look but also boost your confidence. However, with so many options available, choosing the perfect lipstick can be overwhelming. At Mon Lis Studio, we understand the importance of finding the ideal lipstick that suits your skin tone, lip shape, and lifestyle. That's why we're sharing our top tips to help you choose the right shades and formulas specifically for you.

Understand Your Skin Tone

The key to selecting the perfect lipstick starts with understanding your skin tone. Skin tone can be divided into cool, warm, and neutral categories. Cool undertones tend to have pink or bluish hues, warm undertones yellowish or golden hues, and neutral undertones a mix of both. A simple trick to determine your undertone is by looking at the veins on your wrist. If your veins appear bluish, you likely have a cool undertone. If they appear greenish, you have a warm undertone.

Choose Shades That Complement Your Undertone

After identifying your skin tone, select lipstick colors that complement it. For cool undertones, lipsticks with blue or purple undertones are ideal, while warm undertones harmonize with lipsticks in orange, red tones, or even some browns. Those with neutral undertones have the advantage of a wide range of colors suiting them.

Consider the Lipstick Formula

Choosing the right lipstick formula is just as important as the color. The most common formulas are matte, satin, and glossy. Matte lipsticks offer high pigmentation and long wear but can dry out the lips. Satin and silk lipsticks provide a good balance of color and moisture, while glossy lipsticks moisturize and make the lips appear fuller. Your choice should depend on your personal comfort and the occasion.

Test Before You Buy

A shade that looks beautiful in the packaging might look completely different on your lips. That's why it's important to test lipstick before purchasing. If that's not possible, look for online tools or apps that allow virtual try-ons. Many brands offer such tools to give you a better idea of how the lipstick might look on you.

Consider Your Lifestyle

When choosing the perfect lipstick, also consider your lifestyle. If you're someone who's always on the go and has little time for touch-ups, long-lasting formulas like liquid lipsticks might be a good option. If you value comfort and care, creamy formulas or lip balms with a hint of color are ideal.

Choosing the perfect lipstick is a personal journey that should be fun and highlight your natural beauty.
