Out of all those lipsticks that we splurge on there are few shades that we use frequently or occasionally and then there are shades that are left to be forgotten inside our vanity.

To avoid such kinds of situation and to prevent you from big blunders, let's take a look at the shades which will suit more on your skin tone and help to make you look gorgeous.

Indian skin tones are mostly accustomed to having yellow undertone instead of pink. But for your peace of mind, you can determine your undertone by seeing the colour of your veins. If your veins are of blue colour then your undertone will be pink and if your veins are green then you have a yellow undertone and if you are one of those lucky people with bluish-green veins then it means that your undertone is neutral and that you can use cosmetics developed for both undertones.
