A haute Red Lipstick as Must Have Makeup Products in Every Makeup Kit
A bright lip adds a dash of instant glamour. Nothing adds brightness to your complexion like a Red lip shade. It goes pretty well with a little black dress, nude shades, pastel pinks, oranges.. almost anything actually apart from formal meetings of course. You must own at least one Red lip colour in your makeup kit.There are many shades from the Red family that you can pick from.
You can consider these tips as a general guideline to pick the right Red for your complexion :
Women with fair skin tone should not go for purest form of blood Red as it might make your lips look too much in contrast with your complexion. You can take your pick from Cherry Red, Cranberry Red, Pinkish Red or Bluish Red. In simple words, pick Reds with undertones of some other colour. If I may suggest, try
Those with medium skin tones should try Orange based Reds and Brick Red shades. Try
- Revlon matte lipstick Really red
- MAC Chilli
For duskier skin tones, go for Cranberry, Burgundy and wine Reds
- MAC Diva
- L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Garnet
However, these guidelines are just for reference and are not hard and fast rules. A lot depends on your exact skin tone, your face cuts, dress and how you carry your dress and makeup. So, I feel you should try everything to see what suits you the most.
