Wearing Two Shades of Lipstick; Is It the Cool New Way?

Wearing Two Shades of Lipstick; Is It the Cool New Way?

Recently, I discovered a fashion trend that is picking up among women, wearing two shades of lipstick at the same time. For example, if the upper lip has red lipstick, the lower lip may be purple, or red in the center and pink around the edges.

Whatever colours you choose, it is a fun way to play around with colours and brighten the dull colours. It is like picking out your outfits and looking yourself in the mirror to see if they match. Quality Lipstick Products

The best way to do this is to apply the sheds of lipstick you may want to use at the back of your hand and see if they match. Remember to pick colours that are in the same family, like deep red and light pink. Once you have picked your two colours, apply the brighter colour on your upper lip and make it fuller, then swipe the darker colour on your lower lip. Affordable Beauty Products from Jumia

However, if you are not into wearing two different shades of lipstick, lets discuss the dos and don’ts when picking a lipstick to wear.

  • Choose the shade that matches your skin tone

You will never go wrong with this. It is the same as picking your make up that will go with your skin colour.  I suggest you use common colours such as dark red, pink or purple. However, being bold and trying different colours is not wrong. As long as you look in the mirror and see yourself looking good.

  • Avoid shinny glossy lipstick

Why? They don’t stay for long and can easily get smeared on your mouth. Opt for dry lipstick.

  • Mix your shades

This can be lots of fun. Let’s use the common red lipstick. It has different shades and you can play around and mix them to see what bold colour you may come up with.

  • Outline your lips with lip liner, before applying the lipstick

This is an important step that women skip and go right away to apply lipstick on their lips. It outlines your lips and makes them look fuller. Also it helps when applying lipstick that you may not go beyond the lips. Remember to use the same colour of pencil as your lipstick.

  • Use a lip brush to apply your lipstick

This I did not know. I always apply the lipstick directly to my lips. The lip brush will give the perfect result as envisioned by you.

  • Don’t apply too much mascara or eyeliner

Use a thin line to shape your eye and little mascara so as not to bring out wrong attention to yourself. I have seen so many women who seem to have smeared the mascara on their eyes.

With the above tips, am sure you will be wearing your lipstick in style and bringing out new trendy fashions. Would you try the two shade lipstick? I like the red in the center and pink around the edges.
