Looking for that perfect Red Lip?
You think you can’t wear red lipstick? Think again. Anyone can pull off a red lip; you just need the right shade that works well with your complexion. But finding your perfect shade can be a real headache.
For an easy, quick pick then Revlon’s Fire and Ice Lipstick is the one to spend your money on. The colour was designed suit all skin tones as it falls between cherry and pillar-box red. (£7.49)
If you have porcelain skin like Cate Blanchett or Taylor Swift then going for blue-based reds like cherry, plum or wine shades, will complement your skin tone. Brown reds are ones to avoid as they will just wash you out and make you look even paler.
Avon’s Ultra colour rich mega impact lipstick in charged cherry is a great example £8
If you have more of a golden skin tone that has a warmer undertone, then the brighter the better. Bright fire engine reds are the ones to look out for, as pinker shades or red can look too brash. Celebs like Cheryl Cole and Cameron Diaz have golden skin tones.
Eyeko has a fab Liptastik glossy lip pen in lip lover for £6.50.
If J-Lo or Jessica Szohr’s olive skin tone is more you, then dodge burnt orange based reds and contemplate picking deep ruby reds such as
Bourjois Rouge Soyeux Lipstick in Sweet Kiss Naturel £7.99
Rihanna and Beyoncé’s dark, warm toned skin mostly suits bright tomato reds such as
Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème lip colour in Paris £21.50.
Secret Tip ♥
Try lip colors out on the pad of your fingertips (as opposed to the back of your hand, where most people do it). It has deeper versions of your skin's undertones, so if the color looks good on your finger, it'll surely look good on your lips.
