14 Hacks For Choosing The Right Makeup Colors For Yourself

I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time figuring out what makeup colors are flattering. I definitely know whether I like a color or not, but I struggle with whether it’s the “right” color for me. I don’t really see how one color makes my skin look dull whereas another one makes my skin appear to radiate health and happiness. Normally, the only time I notice a color is wrong is after I’ve worn it a couple of times or I look at a photo of myself and wonder what’s up with the random lipstick shade.

Can you relate? You might have heard about choosing flattering makeup colors based on your undertone and whether you’re a “warm” or a “cool.” If it sounds like I’m speaking a funny language, you’ve come to the right place.
