So lets just hit the pause button on Youtube Kolaveri video for a second (if you dont know what im talking about you have been living under a rock- click here) and focus on something! I just had a chat with Mac Senior Artist for India & Middle East- Vimi Joshi (via online Chat) and i asked her to share her recommendationss! I know i wanted to know a LOT more but she is very busy and had to limit my questions. So i asked her about lipsticks for Indian Skin since i know thats what a lot of us struggle with.
Mehak: Hi Vimi!
Vimi: Hi Mehak, how are you?
Mehak: Im great , How are youu!! I wanted to know if you had to pick 2-3 lipsticks from MAC for indian skin tones, which ones would u pick?
Vimi: Have you tried Amourous, Verve or Touch lipsticks by MAC, they work perfectly on Indian skin tones
Mehak: Ooh yes i have Amorous !!!
Vimi: Especially prefer a natural look
Mehak: One more tiny question- i always struggle with brighter lip colors..i know Viva Glam Cyndi workd great on me, but if i had to go with a brighter lip what apart from that would you recommend ?
Vimi: You should try Impassioned, Girl About Town and Dubonnet as they are great bright colours for Indian skin tones
Mehak: Thanks Vimi! You were really helpful :)
Vimi: It was great talking to you Mehak!
So in short: For natural lips she says Best Natural MAC lipsticks for Indian skin are Amorous, Verve and Touch (Amorous is a deep plummy color) and Touch is my moms favourite brown . Verve is a bit too brown for me personally. For brighter colors she suggests Impassioned, GAT and Dubonnet
