    Using a color like orange for a start connotes a wild attitude, people don’t know whether they can approach you. In this case, one doesn’t need to add any other facial make up as this color lipstick helps to translate your mood. It brings about uncertainty from others towards you, As an introvert you might not want to be involved in a chatty banter or an extrovert who might not be in for a discussion but might sound angry if asked about their quiet demeanor.  Orange is the shade to go for coupled with an expressionless face or confused look when quizzed about one's mood or whether one is up for a chat. The facial expression and the lipstick should do the trick.

    Secondly, since the shade connotes one that is wild, fun and happiness goes here too.  For one that wants to attract people to you without saying a word, because you are shy or uncomfortable approaching people first, especially in a public setting,  lip gloss orange or a slight smudge of matte orange lipstick with a wide smile would do the trick. Also for one who is an extrovert, a smile is just enough. Who doesn’t want to sit with the girl with orange lipstick when she’s smiling!

    For one with a warm skin tone should try a deep shade of green, whilst the cool skin tone should try the light shade, not bright, or a tinted glossy version of green.

    This is the mysterious shade that can be interpreted on 3 different levels.

    First. Wearing  a green lipstick with light makeup represents an "earth individual", one that is fun, practical, humble, unassuming, very physical and intense. A floral, bohemian and edgy sense of fashion is an excellent compliment for this lipstick. Green eye shadow will just help the situation be more fun and interesting.

    Second. Green projects the image of passive rage akin to jealousy. Use green if you are looking to project your frustration without looking like an attention seeker or an overtly jealous person. Wearing the green lipstick shade, with something of a black eyeliner and a serious expression will perfectly pull off this look..

    Third. Green is the ultimate mysterious sexy color . When one wears green you are not saying can I approach or not? You simply can’t and you just stare. Be it in dress or in lipstick shade. It has its own form of aura with it. If red is too pronounced for you, substitute with green to get that same vibrant sexy mood out there.

    Note that glossy green makes one appear younger and vibrant whilst matte on the other hand gives off a  more mature and intense image, do a test combination of both before you go out.

    This shade encompasses other  similar shades, like burgundy and light or deep shade wine. They basically intimidate you. These kind of shade  tells one "don’t come to me, and even if you do, don’t expect me to open up to you immediately". It is an unusual color for one to wear, and a tricky one to pull off. Warm skin tones should go for deeper shades, cool skin tones should branch in for light shades, not too light so one doesn’t appear washed out.

    This here shows you’ve got nothing to hide, nothing to prove, nothing to show, take  me as I am or leave me. A total “badass” approach to anything and to anyone.
