|This little trick can save you time, frustration, and the need to return your purchase.|
When shopping for lip colors, you might be tempted to test the shade on the back of your hand to determine whether the color will be right for you. Yet, the skin in that area is hardly as pigmented as your lips, which often leads to coming home with less than idea choices once you try the product on. However, there is a way around that problem that I want to share with you for figuring out how to judge those lip colors more accurately. If you follow this advice, then you are more likely going to be happier with your lip color purchases in the future.
Next time, you are hunting for new shades of lip colors, I suggest swatching the shade on your thumb. The skin there is a closer match to the color on your lips! Believe it or not, this makes a big difference to get a better color match.
Trust me, this trick on how to judge lip colors works and will please you to no end.
