We're not fussy about our make-up here at RO HQ, often you're lucky if we're wearing a scrape of mascara between us! But that's not to say we don't love it, it's just hard to find the time to doll up for the every day!
But we've come across some great tips for ways to choose the right shade of pink for you skin tone recently, and would love to share them!
Here are our fave ways to wear pink make-up, and little secrets about choosing shades that are right for you!
This ones easy (and technically is more advice than a real tip) but we say GO FOR IT. Baby pink nails go with most outfits, but bright pink nails don't even have to match! We love the OPI range, especially when used with their base and top coats, as it seems to stay on without chipping for ages!
Cheeks are a little harder, first you have to determine what kind of skin tone you have. The easiest way to do this is to look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they appear blue or purple you're in the blueish cool toned spectrum. If they appear green you're in the yellowish warm toned spectrum. If you can't tell if they are blue or green, you're in the middle neutral spectrum. If you're cool or warm there are shades which suit better than others, if you're in the middle, you're lucky, pretty much everything goes well for you!
You probably know if you're fair skinned, medium, olive or dark... But the underlying tone makes a big different too! Here's a quick guide to what colours suit your tone and undertone.
Fair skinned - warm toned: warm pinks
Fair skinned - cool toned: watermelon pinks
Medium skinned - warm toned: peach or soft oranges
Medium skinned - cool toned: light, rose pinks
Olive skinned - warm toned: neutral, mauves
Olive skinned - cool toned: neutral, mauves
Dark skinned - warm toned: bright red, oranges
Dark skinned - cool toned: vibrant pinks
The same basic rules go for lips as they do for blushes! But the great thing about rules, is that they're made to be broken. Wear what you like, what feels good, and stuff the rest!
