Finding Your Perfect Lipstick Shade

Local News

Finding the perfect lipstick may seem like a daunting task but Riki Lebied, owner of Syracuse Makeup Artistry says it’s easier than you might think.

Lebied’s no-fail simple tip: your wrist. If your veins appear to be greener in color your skin town has a warm undertone. If they appear bluer in color, you have a cool undertone, she says. Knowing the difference between warm and cool, can be the key to finding the right shade for your pout.

To achieve plumper lips, Lebied suggests exfoliating your lips with a clean toothbrush to get the blood flowing.  Over-lining your lips with a neutral lip liner can also make them appear larger, she adds. And regardless of color or plumpness, one way to keep your lips healthy is to hydrate and moisturize.
