Red, being the colour of passion and love is the sexiest colour when painted on your lips. A red lipstick is an iconic beauty staple and is one of the first lip shades that were used. From Marilyn Monroe to Taylor Swift, women have always loved sporting red lips. Your vanity is never complete without a red lipstick.
There is a red for every woman. But it is often difficult to choose the right red for your skin tone. The red which suits your bff or your mother may not suit you. Wondering why? Then, keep on reading.
In this write up I’ll be sharing just one trick to find the right red lipstick. One trick that will change your beauty game. The one trick is to buy a red lipstick that suits your undertone. We are generally categorised into warm (yellow), neutral and cool (pink) undertones. Find out your undertone with these tips.
1. Have a look at your veins in sunlight. If they appear green you have warm undertone and if they are blue, you fall under the cool undertone. If you cannot figure out between green and blue, you are lucky as you are a neutral undertone person.
2. If gold jewellery suits you more, you are warm skin toned. If silver suits you, you are cool skin toned. You are neutral skin toned if both suits you.
3. Do you look gorgeous in yellow or orange? Then welcome to the club. You are a warm skin toned person. Blue or greens will suit cool skin tones better.
Now that you know your skin tone, let’s move on to our topic…
If you are warm skin tone person, look out for red lipsticks that have more of orange tint in them.
If you are a cool skin tone person, red lipsticks mixed with blue will flatter your skin tone.
