How To Choose The Right Red Lipstick For Your Skin Tone
The most flattering lip tones will be one or two shades darker than your natural lip color, according to makeup artists....
1. Women with fair skin, look great in lipstick shades such as nudes in a slightly apricot shade, pinks and light corals. Stay away from browns, which will appear blah.
2. Those with a medium skin tone can go a bit darker. You’ll look great in roses, mauves and berries. Skip the bright reds and consider a deep burgundy instead.
3. Deep plum, chocolate or red is fabulous with dark skin.Women with dark skin “can go in one of two directions: toward brown or purple. Think caramel or walnut for day, and plum or wine for evening.”
One big red lipstick no-no: It’s best not to match lips to your outfit.
