* If you have the fair skin tone, go for cool colours lipstick. To accentuate your skin tone, wear lip shades of peaches, nude pinks, mauve. For fair skin, you can go for mattes. For the eyes, you can swap light eyes with bold lips or vice versa depending upon the occasion.
* If you have a wheatish skin tone, go for truly warmer lipsticks shades, even reds and orange. On this skin tone every colour from light to dark suits well. To pick and choose, make sure that your face is bright and not dull. Use a thin layer of BB cream or cushion foundation and play with kohl eyes. Give equal attention to lips and eyes to highlight your features.
* If you have the neutral skin tone, opt for dark pink or violet or just browns. Make sure you always opt for matte shades that do justice to your face and keep you all day long elegant and classy.
* If you have the darker version of skin tone you can opt for sheer glossed and maroon tones or brown lip shades, that suits you well. Intense smoky eyes with nude lips with a tinge of sheer gloss always wins the game.
