Matte Lipstick or Glossy Lipstick:

Lipstick colors for your skin tone

We are always confused whether to prefer matte or glossy lip sticks. I always prefer matte lipstick during summer because they show their true color. When you apply glossy lip sticks they give an oily look and make your face look dull and oily during summer, if you use matte lip stick you will get the perfect summer look. Sometimes we face problems like dry and chapped lips, if we apply matte lipstick on dry lips our lips look horrible. So I suggest you to use glossy lipstick because of their liquid consistency the dryness will disappear and our lips feel soft and glossy. If you are a matte lipstick lover facing the problem of dryness try matte liquid lipstick they hydrate your lips and provide that matte lipstick look.

Few tips to choose the best lipstick colors for you:


If you have pigmentation on your lips go for matte lip sticks they cover the pigmentation with their thick consistency. Coming to size of lips, we all have different size of lips, if you have thick lips applying glossy lip stick will make your lips appear fuller. So go for matte lipsticks they make you lips look unique. If you have thin lips glossy lip stick look good on you and matte lip sticks also work for you. Prefer neither dark eye shadow or lip stick. Don’t apply the both in dark color. If you wear a dark lipstick go for a light eye shadow color if you prefer a dark eye shadow color go for a light lip stick.

Use the same color lipstick and lip linear don’t use different linear and lipstick because it’s not in trend anymore. When you go to purchase a lipstick try the lipstick inside your arm it will save your time and you can choose the best lip color for you. Don’t hesitate to try them. You can pick the best one only if you try.



This not a strict rule to follow. If you have faced a situation like the lipstick that you have purchased doesn’t suit you these steps will help you find the best lipstick color for your skin tone. Practice makes you perfect get more lipsticks and play with colors. One day you will become a pro. What you wear doesn’t matter if you have the confident to carry it. Don’t allow anyone to judge your looks. You know how you look and what looks good on you. Believe in yourself.
