I got a text message from a friend asking me which red lipstick would be good for her. I figured she wasn’t the only one stumped on how to choose the perfect red lip for. I know that red can be intimidating for some (including me!!) and thought I’d share with you. There is definitely a red for everyone. For this reason, you need to take note of your skin tone to see which red lipstick has your name all over it!
Cooler tones can rock a true red. These reds have more of a blue in it.
NYX Black Label in Extreme Red for $7.99
MAC lipstick in MAC Red $15.00
Neutral tones can pretty much rock any look. Depending on what your hair color is (warm or cool) you can rock the colors above or the following colors for warm toned skin:
Warm toned skin would need a warmer red. Colors that have gold or coral in it would work great.
Kate Moss for Rimmel Matte Lasting Finish in 110.
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Plus Red $4.50.
NARS Lipstick in Autumn Leaves $26.00
Darker toned skin would look great with deeper reds. Check out Beyonce’s look. Paired with the golden nude eyes this look is amazing.
Rihanna’s look is also great
No matter with which red lipstick you go with, remember there’s full coverage with a lipstick and a matte, creamy or satin finish. You can also wear a high shine with a gloss. You definitely need to use a pencil with a red in a matching color. Not just to line your lips but to apply all over your lips. It helps the gloss or lipstick last a bit longer.
Red is definitely a commitment and you are going to want to reapply as necessary. Hope this helps you choose that perfect red for you! Work it gorgeous!
