One of our favorite glossbabes (dare I say glossqueen) provides some simple, yet timeless advice for all of us:
“If I had to teach someone just one thing about lip color it would be this: Find a lipstick that looks good on your face when you are wearing absolutely no makeup.” – Bobbi Brown
Bobbi also offers suggestions as to how to find that perfect shade:
“The most flattering lip tones will be one or two shades darker than your natural lip color. To test shades, apply lipstick or gloss to one lip. If that color is just a shade or two deeper than your bare lip, then you’ve found your shade.”
So get out there and find that one stick, gloss, balm, or butter that you can always count on! You won’t regret it, and you’ll know it when you find it!
