I’ll be the first to admit that I’m somewhat of an impulsive shopper, especially when it comes to makeup.

As a result, I’ve bought many items that don’t match my skin tone more times that I’d like to admit!

If you can relate to this all too familiar makeup beauty predicament, we’ve consulted some trusted beauty sources on the best way to choose the right lipstick for your particular skin tone.

1. Figure out Your Undertone

How well do you know your skin?

Are you aware of your undertone?

Some recommend looking at the veins on your wrist to see whether they’re more blue or green.2

Bluish veins typically translate to pink undertones, greenish veins mean a warmer, yellowish undertone.

If you’re like me and they appear equally green and blue, it means you have a neutral undertone and you can wear just about any color.

Another way to tell is by the shade of your skin.

Fair skin tends to have cool undertones while olive or golden toned skin have warm undertones.

If you’re still unsure, try Googling cool undertone and see if you match any of the images in the results.
