The Lip Drape was our first ebhues online drape, and we still use him every day for good reason!
For clients who can't come into the store, this guy will help you discover what undertones you need in your colors. Rather than looking at the color in the container, it's important to see how it interacts with variables like your lip pigmentation! (Basically, what color are your lips? Because that impacts color when it comes to your makeup ...)
The Lip Drape is the perfect tool to dip your feet into the color journey for an easier color browsing experience. After all, second-guessing if a lipstick or gloss is going to warm your eyes and make your features glow is never fun.
What is the ebhues Lip Drape?
The Lip Drape is a collection of 12 lipstick colors with the same value and chroma within different undertones in the ebhues system (Tests Red: Power and Magenta: Ambition). It also contains a pinch test and instructions that will help you turn your results into tangible awesome colors that are yours!
What's the purpose?
Not everyone can wear the blood-red lipstick released by mainstream corporations as a one-size-fits-all lip color. Everyone has their own space where value and chroma matter. The Lip Drape helps you locate where you are + what tones you need so you no longer struggle to find your “red” or what colors will look best on you. Some people need a little more purple in their red, and others need a little more orange, this Lip Drape will help you figure out what undertone works best for you!
What are you looking for when you use it?
When applying the colors, you are looking for the color that is most harmonious with your skin (meaning a color that doesn’t change rapidly + stays true on your skin). You are looking for clarity along with enhancing qualities. You don't want your color to look dull or steal attention away from the rest of your face.
Below is an example of the reds (Powers / Palette A) on people with opposite undertones. The value of the skin is not an indicator of undertone. The arm on the left has a lot of warmth in her color. The arm on the right has a lot of coolness.
How do you analyze results?
Look at where your colors are on the special website located on your card.
How do you find colors similar to the colors found?
On the special webpage located on your card, there are codes and information for each color. You can either search by the codes or check out other colors in that space.
The lip palettes are a good test of your results and can be bought in tester format if you are unsure you got the correct results.
Remember P43d2o would mean P43 is your best undertone.
Where can I buy this thing already?!?!
