Who doesn’t love a Red Lip? It’s sexy, bold, and it makes a statement all its own. With the fall and winter months upon us, this classic look becomes a beauty staple with many women incorporating a red pout into their makeup applications. Finding the perfect red lipstick that complements your skin tone and personality is as personal as finding your perfect fragrance. Just as there is a science to determining your perfect foundation, selecting your most flattering red lip can require a (fun) process of trial and error, but the reward is oh so fabulous.
Fair Skin Tones
Vibrant blue-based cherry reds work amazingly well against fair complexions. They contrast perfectly with pink undertones for a youthful and vibrant look that brightens your smile. In need of a sophisticated lip to take you from day to night? Opt for a rich cranberry shade that slightly warms fair skin complexions providing the perfect amount of seduction.
Suggested Lipsticks – NARS Lipstick in Red Lizard, Clinique High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 in Sassy Spice, and MAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo
Medium Skin Tones
You lucky ladies! Virtually any shade of red compliments your coloring exquisitely. True reds, cranberry shades, and pink-based reds flatter your complexion the best.
Suggested Lipsticks – Clarins Rouge Prodige True-Hold Colour & Shine Lipstick in Blackberry, Illamasqua Lipstick in Blace, and Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick
Dark Skin Tones
Rich blue undertones are extremely flattering against dark complexions. Rich and elegant maroon shades offer a sophisticated look. If a fun and youthful look is what you’re after, select a raspberry hue. The playful pink pops perfectly against dark skin tones.
