Dallas Fashion Coach, Julie Thurburn of Colour IQ, and intern Nida Muhammedi talk about Lipology.
Lipology: The study of what your Lipstick says about you.
Have you ever wondered what your lipstick colour says about you? Even if you do not think twice about the colour you wear on your lips day or night, your selection reveals much more about your personality than you realize. Admittedly, we admire a woman with a well applied lipstick but we’re awe struck by the ones who manage to keep it on all day!
We often pick colours from the same palette and adjust the brightness or the depth of colour for the season, you may have a favorite all-season colour or you may completely switch colours depending upon your mood. Any way you wear it, here’s the message we get:
Red – the colour of passion and sensuality. But then, you knew that! Red tells us that you are confident, bold, happy, passionate, sensuous, and full of energy. A bold red lip is perfect for a night out on the town with your man.
A purple lip means that you love power and luxury. It also says that you are mysterious, romantic, strong and confident. A mauve lip says just about the same thing with a touch of sophistication added for good measure.
Pink is a colour that many women enjoy because it says that you are sweet, feminine, gentle-natured, loving, young, tender, accepting, and a little innocent. No wonder women love pink so much! It is a beautiful colour that is easy to pull off and looks good on all skin tones.
Orange is a shade many women shy away from. A deep orange lip colour symbolizes fire, which evokes warmth and fun. A paler peach shade emits warmth, but it also says that your personality is cheerful and genuine. Every woman can find a shade of orange that fits their skin tone so don’t be shy! Who would not want to be warm, cheerful and fun?
Lastly, there is the nude lip, a lipstick colour that is a staple in every woman’s lipstick collection. It shows that you are happy and simple, down to earth, yet confident, while being cool and calm.
Many times women pick a lipstick colour depending on their mood that day, and now we know that there is a reason for it –every colour speaks to us in a different way! It’s easy to create an indie lip by mixing shades together to create a custom colour, too.
