We often get confused in choosing the right color for our lips. Believe me many of us end up buying the wrong shade. A few tips to buy your perfect shade.
Best tips to buy perfect lipstick shade
First and foremost, thing before buying your perfect lipstick shade is to observe your natural shade in the day light i.e. whether you have a fair, wheatish or dark complexion.
A shade deeper
Choose a lip color which is one or two shade deeper than your skin. For that you can try the color on your lower lip and compare it with the upper lip.
Add plump or keep them small
Before deciding the color keep in mind, whether you want your lips to look smaller or add plump to them. As, lighter shades tend to make your lips look smaller and on the other hand dark and bold colors gives them the plumpness.
Be cautious of the content of the lipstick you choose. You might have allergic reaction from the ingredients your lipstick has. So, always check the ingredients and perform an allergy test by applying the lipstick on your palm. Many lipsticks contain propyl paraben which creates an allergic reaction on the skin and methyl paraben a cancer causing ingredient. Colorants such as D& C Red 36 might cause damage to the nervous system. Always do a background check for these ingredients.
The best lipsticks are the ones containing jojoba oil and other ingredients such as bee wax, candelilla wax for strengthening the lipstick. Some reputed brands keep their ingredients secret such as coconut oil, shea butter which take care of your lips and keep them soft and supple while you look ravishing wearing your perfect color.

Your lips should be ready for the lipstick that means they should be exfoliated properly, having no dead skin. Make sure you scrub off all the dead skin from your lips.
Remove all the moisturizer from your lips before applying the lipstick, they should be all dry. If you don’t do that you may not have the desired result.
Use a powder or a foundation to make your lipstick last long. If you are using a power make sure to remove extra traces. Its best to use a foundation matching your skin color as it keeps the lips from cracking and avoid those dry lines.
To get the perfect shape line the lips with a liner one shade darker than your lipstick. Then cross the Cupid’s bow on your lips to get that luscious look.
You may apply the lipstick directly on the lip between the margins you have drawn or you may fill it with a brush applying the lip color on it.
Now, blend the liner with your lipstick so that it does not look odd. Use lipstick brush to get a perfect finish.
Blotting is must after you apply the lipstick perfectly. It helps to keep the lipstick off your teeth. To blot you can put a finger in your mouth and close your lips around it, then gently pull out the finger. Or you can gently press down a tissue under your lips and carefully remove it.
