Red lipsticks to suit your skin tone

red-lips

It’s true. Everyone can wear red lips, all you have to do is find the right shade to suit your skin tone.

Dark skin
If you have a dark skin tone like Rhianna opt for deep, rich colors like burgundy or warm mahogany. Stay away from vibrant reds.
I recommend:
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in Pense a moi or Rouge Crepsucsule

Medium
You’re lucky. For medium skin tones anything goes. Whether it’s deep reds to pinky reds, these shades will work perfectly with your golden undertones.
I recommend:
Rouge Dior Lipstick Ara Red
Chanel Rouge Allure in Audace

Pale white skin tone
Reds with a hint of coral look fabulous on your skin tone. They’re not too overpowering but will still give you the right amount of colour.
I recommend:
YSL’ s Rouge Volupte in Red Temptation

Also – to avoid doing a Pixie Lott (red lips feathering onto the face) then use a lipliner to avoid embarrassing bleeding.
