Lip Colours for Dark to Wheatish Skin-Shades that Compliment!


Women with wheatish skin can carry any lip colour with great panache, whether it is red, pink, or nudes. But then they must pick up the right shade of that colour which compliments their skin perfectly and doesn’t give them a washed out look. Women with medium/wheatish skin tones look best in earth tone colors. Even reds, berry and mauve shades look very flattering on them. Bright pinks and neons are a strict no. The best lipstick shades for women with medium skin tones are:

Wine, Orange or Yellow Based Reds, Mauve, Rich Browns, Deep Burgundy, Caramel, Coral

• Before going for the perfect lip color hunting it is very important that you understand your skin tone and undertone very well. First, decide on what your skin tone is. Whether it is fair, wheatish, dusky or dark? And your undertone, if it is warm, cool or neutral.

Cool undertone- If you have slight pinkish tone to your skin or if the veins on your wrist appear blue you have a cool undertone.

Warm undertone- If you have a yellowish tone to your skin or if the veins on your wrist appear green you have warm undertone.

Neutral undertone- if you have both pink and yellow tone to your skin then you have neutral undertone.

• Maybe you are not swatching the lipstick correctly. The S.A might suggest to swatch it on the back of your hand but, the correct place to swatch a lip color is on your fingertips as the color of your fingertips is much similar to the color of your lips.

• If you are not too squeamish, you can also try the lip color on your lips to get an exact idea of how the lip color would look on your face.
