Lips are an appealing feature for a first impression, so why not look up a few tips on how to style it according to your taste and run the world, girls?
A young entrepreneur, business woman or a working mom, every lady needs that perfect professional look which has a lasting effect. No one wants that annoying feeling when they look at their face after a couple of hours and see the lip colour drained off from their face or be conscious before eating or drinking anything. So what’s the best solution for an absolute breakthrough that not only lasts long on the lips, but also moisturizes and softens them? Here’s a guide for the best options available.
Indian women have a warm skin tone, yet they prefer dark shades as compared to light ones. It’s time to experiment with cool and bright colours which don’t cross the line of appearing too gaudy or crass.
Shades of brown are very popular amongst women. But, some colours are really dark and can make you look dull. Cappuccino is one such colour. Heavy make-up complements soft brown hues and gives the perfect professional appearance. Caramel, the golden-brown tint can be used to get a royal effect. But it is suitable only for fair and light skin tones.
Pink can be customized accordingly whether it’s day or night. Lighter shades like neutral, beige and peach give a neat look at daytime. At night, darker counterparts like burgundy and maroon show a great outcome.
Bright shades are also in trend. Deep purple, plum,or wine are winter shades which impart a classy look. These shades are suitable for all women, irrespective of age and skin tone. Women with cool and light skin can also carry deep pink very well.
Mauve that lies somewhere in between pink and violet can also be a good option for formal wear. Make suer to outline the mauve lips so that they are well defined and do not look smudged.
Red colour depicts confidence and power. It has always been a classic colour which never goes out of fashion. A muted red shade looks good on all skin tones and is the best choice for formal events. However, bright red can look extremely flashy at the professional upfront.
Those with a flamboyant personality can flaunt orange as well. Orange is a chic and sexy colour. Symbolizing boldness and audacity, burnt orange shade is a good choice for Indian skin.
Making the perfect choice for a lipstick can often be perplexing as you neither want to appear as too exhausted nor too outrageous during business hours. The best way out of the hubbub is to have fun with the exuberant make-up at parties and keep it proper and conservative at work.

If what you prefer is sarees, suits or kurtas while on work, you could dab an orangish lipstick to make a match. The combination would easily give off a slightly racy touch to the conservative look.
Let your lips speak for you. Choose from the best and get the look that makes you perfect in your own way. Put on peppy lipstick and live a little!
