In celebration of National Lipstick Day, today’s beauty guide goes beyond skin-deep by explaining what your lipstick color says about you. Whether you have a signature lipstick color (like a classic red or next-to-nude neutral) or you love trying new, seasonal lipstick colors (like hot pink and deep plum), the choice of lipstick color you wear can have an effect on people you meet.
From bold, vibrant hues to subtle, understated shades, lipsticks come in a wide range of colors and consistencies. Based on color theories, the lipstick colors you wear can have a subconscious impact on people around you. In addition, changing up your lipstick color can help you express your personality or even your mood that day, with just one swipe.
This standout lipstick color has been a staple in every glamorous woman’s cosmetic case since the beginning of makeup. From Hollywood stars to high-powered career women, red lipstick is a dramatic statement that expresses strength, power, charisma, and sex appeal. When you need a boost of confidence or want to exude a sultry aura, swipe on red lipstick.
Girly and sweet, pink lipstick is the essence of femininity. Ranging from soft baby pinks to cheery hot pinks, pink lipstick is a playful way to play up your pout. Plus, it’s easy to wear with other types of makeup (like smoldering, smoky eyes or bronzed cheekbones), making it a versatile hue to wear.
Ideal for Fall and Winter seasons, plum lipstick brings out your inner vixen. This dark, moody color makes a strong statement, evoking an intense, sophisticated, earthy tone. Plus, a deep plum or wine shade can instantly make your teeth look whiter, especially if it has a bluish undertone.
As easy, everyday makeup essential, nude lipstick is a great go-to for all occasions. From those days that you want a fuss-free, natural look to moments when you want to put the emphasis on your eyes or sculpted cheekbones, a nude lipstick is the most versatile, easy-to-wear lipstick color you can choose. Plus, it gives off an innocent, fresh vibe, making it a winner for those days when you’re feeling relaxed and carefree.
