Tips to Choose the Best Red Lipstick
A red lip is always classic, stylish and fun. The most helpful tip, when it comes to choosing a red lipstick is that the fairer your skin the more orangey reds will look good on you. Look for a deeper red and avoid anything too pink. If your tone is more medium, then a darker blue-based red will look best. People with darker features look beautiful in blue-based reds. These colour contrasts lift your features. To simplify it further, I have divided the skin tones into three broad categories:
Fair skin tones
If you have a peachy complexion with pink undertones, opt for coral reds or matte reds with a hint of orange to avoid it from looking too overpowering. Choose shades with a coral or brick undertone that is a bit fiery if you have a peachy complexion with yellow undertones.
Medium skin tones
In case if you have a more olive or golden skin, most shades will work on you. Make a pick from true reds, cranberry shades and pink-based reds. You will look electrifying in all.
Dark skin tones
If you have a deeper and intense complexion, with cool undertones blue-based reds like fig, dark cherry, plum and maroon. Stay away from anything too bright as it might look too harsh.
