3. Pick the right lipstick
It is very important to pick a lipstick with a matte finish – as it will not make it look like you are wearing a sticky thing on your lips. It will give a smooth finish and will totally complement your skin color if you have chosen the right color according to your skin.
4. A few shades higher
Always go with a shade that is a few shades higher than the actual color of your lips. To be sure, pick the lipstick and apply it on your lower lip. Now compare the shade with your upper lip and check it. Does it have the natural lip color or is it looking very different? Once you get to the natural lip color part, it is easy to pick a shade higher.
