When it comes to lipsticks, choosing the right one that is perfect for your skin tone is easier said than done. Most people often have little or no clue as to what is their body tone, so asking them to choose the right lipstick depending on their skin tone is akin to putting the cart before the horse. Check your wrist under ambient light, and if your veins are blue in color, then you have a cool skin tone. However, if your veins appear green in color, then you have a warm skin tone. If they do not appear blue or green, then your skin tone is neutral. Now, you can check out some of the tips posted below which should enable you to choose the right lipstick for your skin tone
