The weather has officially changed and it is COLD in NYC! Do you know what that means? It’s time to update my makeup and swap out my nude lipsticks for bold and rich berry tones. Wearing a berry lipstick in the fall is inevitable…it’s like ordering a pumpkin spice latte…it’s going to happen. Navigating which hue of berry to wear can be a little tricky. You have to make sure you choose the shade that works best with your complexion.
Not sure which shade of berry is right for you? Here is a trick I recently learned…determine whether silver or gold jewelry looks best on you. If gold makes your skin look more luminous, than your skin is most likely warm and has yellow undertones. If silver is more your color, than you probably have cool, pink undertones. What does all of this mean?
It means if you have yellow undertones, opt for berry shades that have more of an orange undertone like burgundy, maroon or deep berry. If you have pink undertones, you should wear a lipstick that has more of a blue undertone like plum, wine or oxblood berry shades.
I was having a hard time deciding which shade of berry lipstick I should use so I made my way to Bloomingdales to get help from the makeup experts. I love the fact that Bloomingdales carries a variety of makeup brands and I never feel like I have to commit to one specific makeup brand. This time, I ended up at the Shiseido counter because they had the perfect shade of berry!
I wanted a long-lasting lipstick that wouldn’t be too heavy but still deliver bold, high-impact. I found it! Shiseido’s VisionAiry Gel Lipsticks are incredible, long-lasting (6hrs) and offer full-coverage with its innovative triple gel technology. I am wearing the shade “Rose Muse” and I love it!
