GORJEZ LIPSTICKS Collection Accessorize Your Lips! Every woman should own at least one amazing lipstick. Lipstick is a total style accessory, like a stunning pair of heels or a beautiful handbag. Gorjez lipsticks is the “perfect Lipstick” accessory for every woman.
It irritates me when cosmetics specialists quote cover rules: “Pick a lipstick two shades darker than your regular lip shading.” You wouldn’t restrict yourself in such a way when picking a handbag or Stiletto Heels?Hence, Lipstick is the same – it is an adornment like any other. Treat it like one.
This is not to say there aren’t some guidelines. Let the following be your framework the next time you find yourself faced with a sea of lipsticks, each one screaming “pick me, pick me!”
Question 1: Do you want a bold or neutral lip?
This is the fundamental question? Deciding on a color family feels like the natural starting point. However, don’t start there. Instead, start by deciding on either a neutral or bold lip. Lipsticks fall into two general categories: neutral or bold. Neutral lipsticks blend with the rest of your makeup.
To determine if you want a bold or neutral lips, ask yourself whether you want your makeup to standout? If no, then go with a neutral lipsticks. If yes, then go with a bold lipsticks.
Note, you should typically refrain from pairing a bold lipsticks with smokey eyes. Because you don’t want both your lipstick and your eye-shadow to be bold–otherwise your face may look too cluttered.
Keep in mind that not every shade within a color family is bold or neutral. A particular red lipstick can be bold, while another red lipstick can be neutral. Similarly, a color that is neutral on fair skin women may actually be bold on a woman with darker complexion. For this reason, bold or neutral should be your first question.
Question 2: Are you gravitating towards a particular color?
If so, go with it. Let your intuition be your guide. Many makeup artists rely too heavily on rules based on skin tone. If you have skin tone X, they say stick with colors A and B and avoid colors C and D. I find this approach far too rigid.
Certainly skin tone can be an important factor when considering a lipstick. But don’t get too wrapped up in it. Rather, view it from the perspective that some colors “compliment” certain skin tones. Of course if you eventually decide a lipstick is too light or too dark for you, you can always darken or lighten.
Reds: Typically classified as the boldest choice. Realize, though, that reds vary tremendously. They range from bright to dark to very sheer (meaning they just add a transparent wash of color). Reds can “compliment” all skin tones. Deep pigmented reds flatter medium and darker skin tones.
Pinks: Exceptionally versatile and always very feminine. Pink lipsticks can be good for any occasion.
Corals/Oranges: These colors look great on all skin tones. They especially compliment women with warmer undertones, such as those with a golden complexion and yellow to their skin. This color family is more favorable in warm weather, but can be incorporated year round.
Purples/Plums/Berries: A great choice if you want to add more color to the face. These colors are best for the fall and winter months.
Browns: Great everyday colors that easily pair with the rest of your makeup. Lighter shades tend to blend nicely with more fair complexions and deeper browns suit darker complexions.
Question 3: What is more important to you: lipstick longevity or lipstick comfort?
GORJEZ Matte lipsticks are the longest lasting lipsticks. When it comes to a statement-making pout, GORJEZ matte lipstick is the way to go. The product leaves the lip with a velvety finish that stops people in their tracks. From hot pinks to deep burgundies, matte lips are not the easiest of looks to pull off, but when you can, they look flawless.
