4. Date Night
The night you want to impress and feel yourself completely, but also hit your date with a large impact that he will not forget! Therefore, you have to go for red lip colours. Red usually works very well with a nude smokey eye, or even make simple makeup look effortless. The shade of red depends completely on your skin undertone, which can be a warm or cool complexion. Blue hue reds compliment cool tones and orange tone reds compliment Warm tones. To figure out what undertone you are is easy! Hold your forearm up to the light, and look where your pulse should be located. Blue veins indicate you are a cool tone and green veins indicate a warm tone. However if you are a bit of both, great news- you are a neutral tone and can wear both, YAY!
5. Night Out
A night out means glamour and glitz- extravagance is a vibe. So, your selection in lip colours cannot fall short at all. A night out is all about letting your hair down and having fun with your girl clique, therefore an orange shade is just for you. Orange toned lipsticks can be subtle or completely bright- it all depends on how courageous you are feeling!
