Find the perfect red lipstick for your skin tone!
In the words of Kathy Stinson, RED IS BEST.
It was true then and it’s true now. There is nothing like a bold red lip.
And YES, everyone can wear red lipstick – the trick is you just have to find the right shade.
THE RULES OF RED:
FAIR SKIN TONES:
As a general rule, lip colors that have similar undertones to your skin’s will look the most natural on you. So, if you have fair skin with cool undertones opt for pink or blue based reds. If you have fair skin with warm undertones opt for a warmer, cheerier red.
For an extra rich look line & fill in your lips with a pencil. They have more pigment than lipsticks.
FOR SUN-KISSED or MEDIUM SKIN TONES:
Sheer reds help prolong that back-from-vacation glow as well as complimenting medium skin tones.
OLIVE SKIN TONES:
Try a sheer, glossy red with gold flecks that will pick up on the golden undertones of your skin.
DARK SKIN TONES:
For more brown skin tones: deeper reds that have both blue and brown in them (but not too much of either) will complement your complexion. For darker skin tones: warm, chestnut-tinged reds and sheer red glosses are best.
