It’s National Lipstick Day!

Posted 5 years ago - by: Kate Faulhaber

Hey everyone and happy National Lipstick Day! I already have all of those individual lipstick color posts so you can check those out…otherwise I’ll be posting something different today. Ever heard of choosing a lipstick to flatter your eye color? It does work! So today I’ll be here to help you if you’re looking for your perfect bright lipstick that still helps your beautiful eyes stand out!

Here’s a hint for how to pick the perfect lipstick to bring out your eyes…whatever your eye color is…the lipstick color should have a tone of the color opposite of the color wheel to your eye color!

Blue Eyes: The opposing color to blue is orange. So any orange toned lipstick is going to bring out those gorgeous baby blues! You can try a orange pink, a coral, a blood orange, an orange toned red, or even a flat out orange! Here are a few options for you.

Brown Eyes: Brown is opposite of blue. Thinking that most of you will not want to wear a blue lipstick (but more power to ya if you do!) so think about blue toned or cool toned pinks and reds. A few options for you are listed below.

Green Eyes: Purple. Please wear purple lipsticks. These will make your green eyes look so vibrant and beautiful. Too scared of pure purple? Berry lipsticks or fuchsias will give you the same effect. Here are some options.

Hazel Eyes: You ladies have the best eye color for rocking nude lipsticks! With such a unique eye color, all attention should be on them. Don’t blank out your lips too much or else the life in your skin will be gone! Here are a couple flattering nude shades to try!
