The color is all wrong!
The perfect shade of lipstick is out there, it can just be unnerving to find. This tip is the easiest way to match your own personal shade. Whether the color is matte, shimmer, or shine this easy tip can help.
Holding the sample color or tube up to the back of your hand in between the thumb and pointer finger will give you the best area to see if it’s a tone match. If your skin tone doesn’t scream, “ewww!”, then you may have found a match. If your skin tone looks amazing, then you’ve definitely have found a good color that will work for you.
If it’s a sample or product tester, you can rub the color right onto your hand. However, there’s no need to break a seal on a product. That’s just wrong. Holding the color up to the hand should be sufficient. (Please, do not break a seal to test or buy an already broken seal when it comes to makeup.)
The ‘holdup to the back of the hand’ method works with other colors too. Whether it’s makeup, hair color, or clothing, matching your personal skin tone can make or break your look.
