I just go with whatever “lipstick mood” I am in when I wake up. Also if I have to wear something specific for a certain occasion I try to coordinate my lipstick with that.

i call it the lipstick lottery. stick my hand in the drawer and wear whatever comes out. haha. (i own like the exact same color all in different hues so they all match everything lol)

Im kind of the same..i try to think about what the weather is like..if its too cold i dont like to wear to bright of a pink or red..and i go for darker corals or maroons..but since i am a pinky crazy..lol i tend to stay within corals and pinks just different shades.. But i do always keep my blush & lipsticks within the same shades!!!

I usually grab a flesh-toned beige or pink that’s neutral on days I’m off to college or in a rush. If I go for something fancier on the lips, I pare down the amount of drama going on in the eye-makeup department.

I decide based on my top and where i’m going! I don’t like wearing too bold of lipsticks to class, but I’ll wear bold colors when I go out to eat or party! 🙂

Depends on what I’m doing. I usually wear some shade of nude or my favorite MAC Gel lipstick. Sometimes I’ll match my nail polish. On days I’m wearing sunglasses for most of the day I might wear a bright barbie pink for fun.

The colour of clothes I’m wearing is the biggest decider, and bright or more subdued according to how I’m feeling and where I’m going.

If it’s a case of grabbing and applying lipstick in a hurry before leaving the house, then I always have a neutral ‘my lips’ colour to hand.

it depends on what i wear on clothes..if i have pink i chose a pinkish lipstick and maybe some gloss over it… and if i wear a blue shirt and black i always take something bright althoug like pink or a dark lipstik witch although has to fit the my eyeshadow mix…(sorry bad english)

Sometimes I base my lipstick choice to the shade of eyeshadow I will wear, or I choose lipstick shade depending on my mood then work my whole makeup based on it.

It just depends on the way I fell…I love so much my lipsticks that I think each one suits me perfectly! 😉

I think the lips and cheeks should coordinate so I think about it as I’m doing my eye makeup. First, I match my blush with my eye makeup then match my lipstick to my blush.

I take so many things into account when choosing a lipstick. First, it has to be warm toned to go with my skin. Then, I decide based on whether it’s day or night. It has to go with the rest of the makeup….generally a heavier eye makeup gets a more neutral lip and vice versa. It has to go with the blush. Lastly, I look at the outfit I am wearing and make sure the makeup looks appropriate with the clothes. Phew.
