Winter Lip Guide

Looking to find the perfect pop of lip color this winter season? I’ve got a quick guide on

finding a flawless color match for you individualized skin tone. Here’s the how-to:


Identify Your Skin Tone

In order to do this you must find the undertone of your skin type. Try to take note of either pink, or yellow undertones. A quirky little tip is to simply look at your wrists. Do your veins appear green or blue? If they are blue, you skin has pink undertones, if your veins are green, you have yellow undertones. Have a mix of both? Lucky you, you are a neutral skin tone, and can most likely pull off any lip color.


Match Your Shade

Pink undertones (warm skin tone) – Try to choose a shade that falls between the lines of red and purple. These warmer shades will bring out the honey in your skin.

Yellow undertones (cool skin tone) – Play with cooler shades of purple. You can even pull off a purple with a hint of blue for a totally dramatic winter look.
