Choose The Right Lipstick Shade And Look Dazzling Like Anushka Of Paaru

A little lost about lipsticks? Here are a few tips inspired from Anushka of Paaru that will help you choose the perfect shade!

Mansi Joshi is grabbing eyes with her shades of lipstick. The talented actress who plays the negative role of Anushka in Paaru is known for her brilliant performance in the show. However, off-screen, her choice for the perfect shade of lip colour has caused all the buzz around her.

If you, too, love lipsticks but are confused about how to pick a shade, here are 5 tips to choose the perfect colour.

1. Find a hue that is one to two shades deeper than your natural lip colour

To test how close the shade is to your natural color, apply the lipstick only to your lower lip. Compare that shade to the your upper lip. If the shades are drastically different, you need to keep looking. Sometimes, the colours you choose can be of the colour of your outfit like Miss Joshi in this one.

2. Decide if you want your lips to look smaller or larger

Dark shades will actually make your lips look smaller, while lighter shades can add plumpness. Lipstick with a matte finish can also cause lips to look thinner, while glosses and shimmery shades can make them look fuller.

3. Determine your undertone and complexion

Remember that your undertone and complexion will help guide you, but they aren’t the be-all-end-all of choosing a lipstick color. It is important to try on different shades and, ultimately, choose what you feel looks best.

4. Experiment with shades that experts recommend for your complexion and skin tone

If you have fair or light skin, try light pink, coral, etc.

If you have medium skin, try rose, mauve, or berry shades.

If you have tan skin, try to avoid browns and purples and go for colors with an orange undertone just like the one Mansi has chosen. This purple brings out the facial features.

5. Keep it subtle.

Unless you’re feeling like making a statement with bold lips (which is totally fine!), apply strong shades to your lower lip only. Press your lips together, then use your finger to even out the color
