HOW TO MIX LIPSTICK COLOURS TO CREATE NEW SHADES

IMG_6690IMG_6691

Hello everyone!

Let’s be honest here, who doesn’t want to have at least one lipstick in every single shade that’s out there and possibly in every finish too? Just to try it, you know, and see how it looks on you. It definitely would be my dream, at least once in a lifetime, but as usual, my bank account doesn’t allow me to do that. Sonja, seriously only your bank account? No, maybe my common sense too (ha-ha-ha). OK now that we’ve established that it isn’t so easy and maybe even not very wise to buy that immense amount of lipsticks what can we do because there’re some occasions where we desperately need a certain shade that we don’t have in our drawers. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could create the desired shade by mixing some of our lipsticks together? Have you ever done that? Yes, I’ve and I like doing that. Would you like to do that too? Well, let’s discover which colours we need to mix together in order to obtain the desired colour.

If you want:

 

Berry Shades
Layer deep-plum on top of red.
Burgundy
Put red on top of chocolate-brown.
Coral
Mix orange with pink.
Crimson
Mix red and fuchsia together.

Mix red-orange with rosy-pink.

Fuchsia
Mix royal-blue with pink.
Orange
Mix yellow with red.
Peach
Mix pink and yellow.
Pinky-nude
Put pink over a nude.
Plum
Put red over navy blue.Wine
Mix royal-blue with red.

If you own a nude lipstick that doesn’t look good on you try to put a crimson lipstick underneath it should make it stand out.
A nude lipstick colour is very useful to tone down a dark or vibrant shade that you don’t feel confident wearing.
Do you own a red lipstick that you hardly wear because it’s too bright try to mix it with green. The green colour should help to make it less bright.
Are you looking for the perfect nude shade? Grab a shade that looks similar to your lip tone and add some green.

What can you do if you bought the wrong lipstick shade, i.e. you picked a warm colour but it doesn’t look flattering on you because your skin has a cool undertone? Try this: Use a pink-based lip pencil and put it underneath your lipstick or mix blue with your lipstick. If you did the opposite i.e. you bought a cool toned lipstick but you’ve a skin with warm undertones then layer a brown-based lip pencil underneath your lipstick or mix yellow with your lipstick.

What do you think of mixing colours? Is this something that you’ll try? Have you already done it? Did it work? Please let me know in the comments below.
