Hey Beauties, you don’t need it to be Sweethearts day to add some spice to your look. Red
Lipstick continues to be a universal color that never gets old and can be worn year round.
The key is choosing the best red lipstick for you and it starts with knowing your own skin’s
undertone. You’re probably asking what does “undertone” mean?
Well, your undertone is a color that casts a shadow that lies beneath the skin. It never
changes and helps in determining what colors are right for you. Do you need help figuring
out your undertone? Turn your wrist over and if those tiny veins you see are bluish to
violet in color than your undertone is cool. This is usually someone with pale skin or
ethnic women with dark skin. These women want to choose a red that is blue-based; think
blueberry or cranberry red. Lipsticks you can try include Maybelline Color Sensational
Lipcolor in Red Revival, Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red, L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge
in Ravishing Red or MAC Red, Russian or Ruby Woo.
However, if your veins are green then you have a warm undertone. This is usually women
who have tan, golden or peach tones. So, when you think red, think brick red in terms
of lip color. Red Lipsticks this group of women can try include MAC Chili, Lady Bug
Capricious or Cover Girl Really Red, Maximum Red or Bobbi Brown Burnt Red.
Now you’re ready to run to your nearest drug store or Sephora and pick up your
favorite “red” color and add it to your makeup bag. And don’t’ forget to line your lips with
a nude liner or matching color prior to application.
Until next time beauties!
