blogger Andrea Peixinho recommends lipsticks for your skin tone

Sure, a bold red pout looks great on the red carpet, but it’s not for everyone. Also, how about the black lipstick trend? Have you been playing with the idea of going goth? So, here’s the truth. Beauty looks are ever-evolving and what’s in one season, is out the next. And while it’s great to experiment with the latest fad in makeup trends, it may not necessarily look as good on you as it does on everyone else.

Reason? It just doesn’t suit you. Plain and simple. Today we have blogger Andréa Peixinho who will help you find lipsticks that match your skin tone. These deserve to become your makeup staples because they can brighten up your face, even on a dull day.
