We always hear rules that dictate the "right" lipstick shade we should try, making us think twice before trying out a new lippie color. So, to settle this dilemma once and for all, we asked Jen Gerardof Los Angeles-based makeup brand Gerard Cosmetics: How can you really know the best and right lipstick shade for you?
Her answer was simple and direct: "As far as selecting a shade, with me, I'm always about persistence. Whatever you look at that you gravitate to, go for it. Because we're so hard on ourselves, we look at something and we're like, 'Oh, this would look amazing on someone else, but not on me.' And the thing is, somebody else just has the courage to pull it off.
"I think it's just going with your first instinct and rocking it! It's really about attitude. It's all about how it makes you feel."
