Depending on the day, you’ll see me out at the farmers market in sunglasses hiding my nude face (bare bare bare!) or – especially if it’s a day I’ve had a TV or media event – I’ll have a fabulous full face of make-up. Truth be told, I’m actually leaning more on days where I apply full make-up because I’ve found easy ways to “do mah face” in under ten minutes. I find I not only look better with makeup but I feel better when I look in the mirror.
Lip colour has always been a challenge. I have thin lips and lean towards colors that are more nude-based because I don’t want it to be obvious if the colour bleeds. I have pale skin and also lean towards lighter colours because I felt like the contrast of a dark hue would be too loud for me. It turns out, it’s not that I can’t wear a darker hue, it’s that I have to find the right hue to match my skin tone.
When it comes to lip colour, we believe there is no colour you can’t wear! All you have to do is find the right version of each colour to work with your unique attributes. That’s why we’ve come up with a line that offers nine variations of a single colour, ensuring the perfect colour match for your skin tone and complexion. Our concept is simple; take the test and be introduced to your lip colour soul mate. Or browse the collections and handpick your own personal favourites instead. Either way, we know you’re going to rock that picture-perfect pout with one of our ultra-hydrating lippies!
And so, I took the quiz at toncosmetics.com and the results were that I’m Fair Cool 1 and Fair Cool 2 – one nude shade and one red shade picked just for me based on my answers about my skin. Hmmm, I wondered, could I have found colours that are perfect for me?
In a recent Instagram post above, the skincare product I was sharing caught almost as much attention as my teeth, because of my gorgeous lipstick (a few people commented they thought the post was for a toothpaste!) That’s Ton Cosmetics Fair Cool 2! It’s a big change for me, since I like the more nude tones but I’m wearing it more and finding that I actually like it. Funny how a rich, strong, red on your lips can give you a little bit of oomph in your day.
