Making A Statement With Red Lips
Red lips can make a fashion statement all by themselves. The colour has the power to grab attention for the right reasons. But like every other trend, there are some dos and don’ts. Here is a post to help you learn- how to wear your red lipstick right.
Fun fact: Waitresses who wear red lipstick are said to earn bigger and better tips.
Red lip colour must always be selected keeping your skin tone in mind. Here is a quick guide to choosing the right shade.
1. For fair/pale skin tones
Cherry reds, cool reds and cranberry work best with these skin tones. The pink undertones of fair and pale skin go well with the blue undertones in these lip shades. These shades of red also make your teeth appear whiter.

2. For medium complexions
Orange-reds are perfect for medium-complexioned skin tones. But if you don’t like very bold lips, you can opt for brownish reds. This creates a very vivid look and warms up your overall appearance.

3. For olive skin tones
For women with olive skin tones, it is best to stick to orange-based reds. This gives the complexion a brighter appearance. Orange-reds are in right now and a must-have item for every woman.

4. For dark skin tones
Deep and intense colours work really well for dark skinned beauties. Shades like deep reds, warm brick-reds are playing it safe. The blue undertones in deep reds flatter the skin tone and make it look even more sensuous. You can also try brighter shades if you can handle bold lips.
