Tip Of The Week #72: The Fail Safe Finger Test For 50 Shades Of Red–Lipstick!

We all have done it.  We want to be trendy and adventurous and try the latest runway look.  Red lipstick never goes out of style and like the color orange really can look terrible if you get the shade wrong. The trouble is that you have different tones in your skin and what may look spectacular on the back of your hand may not even resemble that test shade when applied to your lips.  So, how can you get a more  accurate reading on how the lipstick will look on your lips without contaminating it?

The tip of your fingers are closer in texture and hue than the back  of your hand.  Add the lipstick color to the tip  of a finger.   Then place your finger next to your mouth, look into a mirror to judge if it accomplishes the desired effect you wanted to achieve.  Easy, peasy right?
