Choosing A Natural Lip Colour

WHen it comes to choosing a lipstick, many women don't know where to start.  Bobbi Brown has been a makeup leader in helping women discover their best lipstick shade, saying that it should be a colour that is one or two shades deeper than your natural lipcolour!  If you go to a Bobbi Brown counter, the makeup artists are excellent at helping you find that perfect shade.  However, if you're into makeup swatches like me and have different lipsticks or colour swatches on hand, you can become your own best makeup artist and have fun playing around with your swatches.  I have currently have my Soft Autumn and True Autumn swatches and decided to play around with these shades.  I discovered that the soft autumn swatches most closely resembled my natural lip colour:

I think my new 'quest' will be to find a few shades that match the 2.7 and 2.8 swatches -they seem to be my perfect natural colour!!!  I can't wait to go lipstick shopping!!!

When I first saw the picture I thought that particular swatch was the kind you find in the paint section of the hardware store. I was THIS close to running over to Home Depot to pick up a bunch lol. The colors you have are so pretty; You could wear any of those shades and make a lovely look. Swatches are so handy :D

Thanks Kimberly - yes, the swatches do have that paint store swatch effect, but your comment got me thinking - if you don't own any swatches, going to the paint store and getting a selection of pink, natural blush and pink-nude swatches may help you determine your best lip-shades. If you can match your natural lip shade with one of the swatches at the store, you can use the rest of the swatches on that page to see what colours are a shade or two deeper, then go to the store and find a matching lipstick??? This could start a major trend - lol
