1. Skin Tone
The first thing that needs to be done before choosing or applying lipstick is to make sure you know your skin tone. Colors appear different on different skin tones and its important to make sure you’re choosing the right one for you. For example, warms skin tones are made up of yellow, golden and peach tones that pair great with dark, deep and intense colors. Cool skin tones are made up of pink, red or blue tones that look great with pinks and pastels. When choosing a shade make sure the tones suit your look.
