Have you ever tried on a way-too-bright lipstick and was pleasantly surprised when it actually looked good on you? I did a little research and found out that the reason is because the natural color of your lips counteracts the vibrancy of the lipstick hue. You can kill the natural color by applying foundation first, and you’ll get a completely different lip shade using the same lipstick.
Bonus Tip: To increase your color options, take your favorite lipsticks and have fun my mixing them together! Not all of them of course, pick colors that compliment eachother 🙂
