Of all the classic color palette, green is known be the one that look deeply gorgeous on women of any skin tone. There is always a shade of green that can look totally cool on you. If you are planning to wear your green saree and wondering what kind of lipstick can go well with this, then you might find the below write up useful.
When it comes to lipstick there are few basic things you need to understand before you begin to invest on one. You cannot point out and say this is my prefect shade for this saree. There are many hidden factors that need to be catered before you choose your shade of lip color.
Now let’s dive in and check out these factors.
Suppose say you have spotted your friend on a pretty green saree with a stunning lip color to compliment it. If you want to go with similar style, you are making a big mistake.
Before you pick any lipstick shade, more than the dress color, you need to consider your own skin tone. There are certain colors which can look good on medium dusky skin but if the same is worn by fairer skin, it might look down-rightly blunt. Hope you got the point.
So begin your lipstick search by carefully considering basic skin tone. If you are dusky, stay away from light pinks and nudes that might wash you out. If you are fairer skin tone, go for complimenting red or peach.
Next thing you need to focus should be your green saree shade that you plan to wear. If yours is a parrot green saree, then a tone of pink would elevate your lips. If your saree is of deep green, wine or deep red would flatter your look.
If you are opting for a blue-ish peacock green, then berry tone might look magical. Hence it is absolutely essential that you take your saree shade to consideration before grabbing the lipstick.
Other Contrasting Colors on Saree
In most cases, you won’t be wearing green as a standalone color. In case, if your saree has other contrasting hues to highlight the details, then do consider that color as well before you pick your lipstick shade.
For instance, if your saree has pink border, then obviously you can try lipstick on deep pink or fuchsia depending on your basic skin tone.
If your saree is of bright green and it is paired with royal blue blouse like the one below, then tones of nude or pink can help you stand out.
You also need to consider the occasion you plan to wear your sarees. Are you planning to wear your saree for a wedding? Or is it just a office day? Take time to think through it.
If the plan is to attend wedding or family events, chances are you will be wearing green silk saree or designer saree, in that case, you can opt for lip-gloss instead of lipstick. You can even go for satin finish lipsticks instead of matt ones considering your saree is a party wear.
However, if your green saree is a formal wear, then you need to wear lipstick colors that don’t look so daring on the face.
Overall Makeup Look
The choice of lipstick should also be in sync with your overall makeup. For instance, if you plan to wear heavy eye makeup, then keeping your lipstick color to basic nude/brown shade would balance out the look.
However, if you like to play subtle with your rest of the look (Read: less makeup and accessories), then highlighting your lips with vibrant peach or red can serve better.
Don’t forget to consider what kind of green fabric you plan to wear. Simple cotton sarees need lipstick in understated shades. Whereas loud kanchivaram and banarasi silk need something bold on your lips. Your fabric is another essential component before you choose lipstick shade.
These are important factors you need to consider before you pick your shade of lipstick for your green saree. If you are still in dilemma, one hack would work like a charm.
Find a celebrity or fashion blogger who match your skin tone, and check how they wear the green dress (Hint: Check their Instagram page which will likely have all their best dressed moments of life). See how their eyes and lips are done. To begin your makeup game, you can experiment the same style.
Also, if you are going to shop lipstick for the first time, then our advice would be to spend your money on a budget brand till you find the shade that looks good on you. Once you find the right tone for you, you can then invest money on high end brands!
