It’s no secret that my all time favorite lipstick is LipSense by SeneGence. In fact, I own ALL of the colors! (Shh don’t tell my husband!)
Someone recently asked me what my must have shades were and I honestly had a horrible time choosing. I love almost all of them (sorry Espresso!)
Obviously, some colors look better on me than others. And depending on whether you’re cool toned or warmed toned, you’ll find that some shades really brighten your face, while others just look kind of “meh.”
So I tried thinking of the question in another way…what are the top 5 categories of lipstick and gloss that EVERY WOMAN should own, no matter what her skin tone?
Here’s what I came up with…
The Perfect Neutral: This is basically your go-to color. Throw on a pair of sunnies and your favorite neutral and you’re good to go!
The Perfect Red: Whether you’re feeling bold for work or running errands, or having date night or girls night out, the perfect red is a MUST have!
The Perfect Pink: There are some days when I am just in a pink mood. A little playful, a little flirty. Pink doesn’t have to be bold and Barbie-esque. Toned down pinks can be beautiful as well!
The Perfect Nude: Nudes are for every day. Sweatpants, or skirt, doesn’t matter. And they look so great with a smokey eye.
The Perfect FUN Color: Maybe it’s purple, maybe it’s coral, maybe is IS Barbie pink! Whatever makes you feel confident…have at least one of these in your bag!
If you’re not sure how to decipher if you’re warm or cool, here’s a great visual.
Some people, like myself, are neutral and can carry off most colors pretty well.
However, I noticed that the colors that look the very BEST on me are typically warm based. So I’d say I’m neutral to warm.
For me personally, these are my 5 MUST HAVES as a neutral to warm gal:
The Perfect Neutral: SeneGence LipSense in Roseberry
The Perfect Red: SeneGence LipSense in Blu Red
The Perfect Pink: SeneGence LipSense in Aussie Rose
The Perfect Nude: SeneGence LipSense in First Love
The Perfect FUN Color: SeneGence LipSense in Kiss for a Cause
P.S. I wasn’t sure if Nudes & Neutrals were the same at first so I Googled it and luckily, celebrity makeup artist Bobbi Brown addressed that very question.
Her answer: “Nudes are flat colors, like bone, beige, and brown, that look the same no matter whose skin they’re on,” says makeup guru (and neutrals champion) Bobbi Brown. “Neutrals include tones naturally found in the skin, like peach, rose, bronze, and even plum.” (realsimple.com)
So now you have an excuse to own both 😉
