Gone are the days when the bride would approach any of her neighbourhood beauty parlour to get the makeup and hair done. The millennial brides have a clear picture in their head about how they want to look on their special day. That is why they don’t have any qualms while picking the most expensive at the same time best makeup artist in the city for their special day.
Though subtle dramatic makeup is acceptable the earlier norm of heavy makeup on the bride is no more welcomed. Most Indian brides like to keep it simple at the same time glamorous.
The major element that has undergone a drastic change is the colour of the bride's lips. Earlier, no matter the colour of your dress or your complexion the bride will have scarlet lips even if the colour made her look like a complete weirdo in it.
Thank God, the present day makeup artists use the products appropriate for each skin type. You should be an extra cautious while selecting the lipstick as like a carefully selected lip colour could add glamour to your bridal look an inappropriate shade could spoil the whole look. The same lipstick colour won't suit all the skin tones - fair, medium, dusky and dark.
So here are some lip colours which according to experts best suit your skin tone.
An important point to remember before you buy lipstick is that don't test the colour on the back of your hand because the colour of your hand will be nothing like the colour of your lips. It is better to test it on either the lips (only if the salesperson allows it) or test it on your finger tips as the texture of your fingertips is similar to your lips.
While you are testing it on your finger tips then don't forget to place it near your face and then try to see whether the colour suits your face. Also, don't forget to try out the colour in bright light (if possible daylight).
If you have fair skin tone then it is best to select medium shades as it would be flattering on your fair complexion. Even then red is a colour that you could carry off well. It would give you a bold look, but make sure that you go light on your eye makeup. Shades of pink, fuchsia, mauve, peach, coral, and mocha will also look great on you. It is also better for the fair skin people to stay away from dark colours.
Those with medium skin tone can also pick shades of pink. It is a colour that suits well with most of the skin tones. Peach, fuchsia, pinkish mauve, candy pink, magenta pink, coral and brown are some of the colours that would look great on you. Nude colours won't have any positive effect on you so stay away from such colours.
Dusky beauties would look gorgeous in copper browns, maroon coral pinks or rose pink shades and brownish reds. Wine and the shades of plum would also enhance your face but stay away from bright orange and bright reds.
Our country is blessed with many dark skinned beauties and the right choice of lip colour could make you look more stunning. Burgundy, bronze, chocolate browns, plums, maroons, brick red etc are the best colours for you. Light purple will also look great on your skin tone. Stay away from nude tones that will take away the sheen from your face and make you look dull.
