Party season is the perfect excuse for me to unveil a guide to finding your perfect shade of red. Christmas parties or just regular parties are always a good occasion to get those glamorous red lips on – but really, you don’t need to find an occasion, there is always a reason for a red-lip-day.
Whether you need to brighten a not-so-good day or simply give yourself a boost of confidence, I have selected the best shades for your skin tone below.
A cool red in the beauty industry means that there is a blue undertone, which will best compliment olive skin tones or skins with yellow undertones. Those shades are often red with orange or pink in it and they give an amazing luminous glow on the face. Try one of the below shades and it will just look like you are back from a two-week vacation on the beach.
That shade of red that suits all skin tones – a true classic which is wearable day or night, for a fancy occasion or just because you feel like it. It is the shade that makes teeth appear whiter, your face happier and brightens your mood. Basically the cure to anything.
Especially great on darker skin tones, these shades will also nicely complement a winter look. The trick with darker shades is in the application, be patient and go layer by layer. Start with a thin layer and work it into the lips. Then apply another layer until you are happy with the finish. Easy as 1 2 3!
