Applying lipstick is part of our routine. We wake up in the morning and put some color on our lips, and we check our lipstick during the day to see if we need to reapply. We also make sure that our lipstick goes with our ensemble before we go out.
But did you know the shade of lipstick you choose actually says a lot about your personality type and how others view you?
If you’re wondering what your favorite lip shade says about your personality, look no further. Here are the personality types that correspond with six of the most popular lipstick shades:
1. Bold reds and oranges
If bright red or orange is your go-to lip color, you’re probably creative, bold, adventurous, passionate, and confident enough to draw attention to your look. You’re daring and ambitious, and you won’t let a silly little thing like convention slow you down.
2. Perfect pinks
If you love pink lipstick, chances are, you’re sociable, bubbly, friendly, and outgoing.
You’re an attractive person — not just in looks but in personality. People love to be around you because you tend to make them smile. You also try to find excitement in little things.
3. Natural nudes and soft pinks
You’re loving, friendly, and childish, and mature at the same time. You tend to be sympathetic and empathetic of others, and are willing to take the leap of faith — especially when it involves trusting other people.
You can be a bit shy but once you open up, people cannot get enough of your warm personality.
4. Berries and plums
You have no problem letting the world know you’re cultured, independent, reliable, and driven, while still being daring and bold. You don’t want to be just another face in the crowd, but you want to draw attention in a refined way.
The easy way you can go from brunch and museums to gothic and geeky makes you the one your friends go to for advice in all things fashion.
5. Beautiful blacks
Whether it’s the darkest purples, blackest reds, or purest blacks, you have no problem showing off your dark side.
You can be intimidating and seem unapproachable, and even if you enjoy the company of others, you tend to be the type of person who doesn’t mix well with everyone. You also have no problem making your opinions known.
6. Lip balm
You value practicality above most things, like skipping color and just swiping on some clear or slightly tinted lip balm. You’re mature, versatile, and tend to follow the rules.
You have a quiet sort of confidence in the way you own your natural lips and are determined to be yourself and not let other people change you.
Your favorite lipstick color says everything about your personality. So the next time you wonder who you are, look in the mirror and see which lipstick shade you rock most!
