Re: Lipstick on fair skin

|hi, I'm just wondering if anyone can help me find a lipstick that would fit me well. I have a light skin tone (revlon colordtay in medium beige)
and I saw chanel crinoline in a magasine and the model also had pale skin so im wondering if it would suit me well? I have a few pics in FOTD. so please, i really need your help in finding a shade that would look nice on me.
I'm kinda tired of always wearing glosses and i like something matte if possible
For matte lip color, try using a lip ink. It stays on much longer and avoids getting on your revealed bones(teeth). If this does not work for you, as I'm not sure if you want it to be such a pop.. try smudging the lip stain on your lips to almost give a look of being bitten. It works marvelously. I know avon carries a nice selection of lip ink, especially if you're looking for a red that doesn't appear pinkish when applied. Recently I bought a Berry/plum color by Revlon(color that stays line or whatever it is called) I like it very much. It's easy to get a hold of, and almost appears as though its lip ink with more moisture. As far as a lip color for you.. I would just play with the colors. I wouldn't do any type of brown/bronze/bright orange. Try out some pinks and reds, you can never fail with those. Oh and one more thing.. if you're looking for an even more natural look, buy some cherry chapstick brand lip balm and apply liberally. It adds a very subtle pink tint that makes the lips appear larger, in my persceptive that is. I do hope this helps, and have a good journey through lipstick land.
Peace, love, and philosophy.
