Step aside lip Shimmers. Creamy Lipsticks are back in a big way, making mouths look refined, full and thoroughly youthful. Here, the rules for doing lipstick right, right now.

Ever struggle with lip color and what shade to wear? Ever wonder what season red is appropriate or even how to wear a red lipstick and with what? Do you ever question what lip color goes with your coloring?  To add to the confusion if coral lip colors make you look older than you really are? These are just a few questions we get every day in our beauty boutique. The right color lip color is a game changer, it can make you or break you and make you look more balanced, updated and more youthful than ever. Wearing the wrong color can make you look tired, drab and older than you look.

Now let me tell you, there is no wrong or right in make-up but changing your lip color now and then is not only positive but constructive. Most beauty companies change with the seasons. While this can be confusing to some, many women love this notion. It allows their outer beauty to shine while their inner beauty gets a nice mental lift. Expressing yourself with a lip color brings independence—standing your ground and owning your look with confidence. It means loving yourself; it shows you are proud of who you are and proud to be a woman!

With so many lip colors out there to choose from you need to find a balance; a color- balance to look like you. After you have achieved your color-balance, then you can explore new colors. Right now, the new go to lip color is neutral. Neutrals can be tricky but as a rule, find lipsticks with a soft tone and creamy finish. A nice creamy nude or soft pink finish will hydrate the lips giving them a fuller, smoother look. The prettiest nude color is slightly brighter or deeper than your skin tone. If you’re pale, look for something with a hint of pink. Those with yellow or olive undertones look best with brown nudes and peach nudes, which is the trend as of now.  

Not all girls can go for that nude look. If you are the type that likes bright pinks and corals try to find a shade in that family but toned down. Choose the brighter shade based on your lips natural color not your skin tone. Women with pale lips look best in cherry red or soft corals. For naturally reddish lips try a rosy pink or cranberry. For dark lips orange and burgundy’s are ideal. These colors will look current, updated and more polished. Avoid the vampire effect: Blue or black-based shades that are too dark can be severe, aging and even a little scary. Look for lip colors with berry undertones tones if you want to go dark.
