Your How To Guide guide For Juicy Lips
Intimidated by the bold lips you see on celebrities or the runway? Don’t feel like you always have to play it safe with comfortable colors. Step out of your comfort zone and check out my tips to a berry perfect pout for everyday style. *pun intended*
Berry colored lips add a certain sex appeal while still being classy. So how do you pull off this vampy trend without looking like an actual vampire?
Find a Shade That Compliments Your Skin Tone and Hair Color
Strawberry and Raspberry and Blackberry, Oh my! There are so many different shades in the berry color palette to choose from, but it’s important to find the one that works best for you. This all depends on your skin tone and hair color. For example what looks good for a fair blonde, might wash out a tan brunette.
Fair Skin: While any shade of berry looks good on fair skin, darker hues would provide a more dramatic look. For everyday lips, I would recommend a sheer lipstick or gloss in red shades with blue and pink undertones. Think of the sweet colors your lips turn after taking bites of a strawberry or raspberry.
Medium/ Tan Skin: For this skin type its all about the undertone. For cool complexions try berry lipsticks and glosses with magenta, purples and pink undertones( It’ll make your teeth appear whiter as an added bonus). For warmer complexions go for shades of reds, corals and burgundy. **Fun tip, try shades that remind you of your favorite wine!**
Dark Skin: Dark reds and colors with brown undertones compliment darker skin colors. Feel free to use matte lipsticks, because this complexion can handle more thick and rich tones. Look to Scandal’s Kerry Washington for inspiration because her lips are always on point.
