How To Choose The Best Lipstick Colour

How to choose the best lipstick colour. I love a great lipstick. There’s probably no other makeup that I’d rather buy. One of my favourite go-to brands is Burt’s Bees because of their use of incredibly hydrating ingredients and gorgeous pigments. Half the battle of having beautiful lips is ensuring they look healthy and plump. The other half of the battle is finding that ideal tone for you and sometimes that means that you might need to mix and match your favourite shade. Not to worry though because that’s the fun part. The whole purpose of a great lipstick is to enhance your natural beauty, to make a statement about your personality and to simply to make you feel good about yourself.

Now, if you are anything like me then you are probably very picky when you’re looking to buy that next fabulous colour. I mean, what does your lipstick even say about your personality? How do you even have an inkling of which shade to reach for? Once found, what’s the best way to wear it? Before you get overwhelmed and pledge never to wear lipstick ever again, grab yourself a drink, put your feet up, relax and watch this video where all of your questions will be answered!




What’s your favourite lipstick shade?
