Wearing orange lipstick can seem pretty intimidating and tricky, especially for those with Asian skin tone. The larger population of Asians tend to have yellow undertone in their skin, and it’s sometimes different to find an orange shade that complements it.

Undertones can get a little tricky, but an easy way to figure this out is to take a look at a picture of yourself— In general, if you tend to look better in silver jewellery, you’re most likely cool-toned, if you tend to look better in gold jewellery, you’re warm-toned, and if you look good in both, you’re neutral.

If you’ve figured out what undertones you have, it’s time to get down to finding an orange lipstick that will work on you!
