Get the red lips look right

The colour red never ceases to amaze and what better way to flaunt this fiery colour but wearing it on your lips? A red lipstick not only looks classy but glamorous as well.

However, wearing red on lips becomes trickier as you don’t want to look like a clown or a vampire. So to determine which shade of red will compliment you, you must know the undertone colour of your skin – in simple words the colour of skin under your outside skin. Wear a white shirt and stand under natural or bright light, you will see a predominant colour on your skin – yellow, red, pink or blue. If you see yellow or red, then you have warm undertones, while if you see pink or blue then you have cool undertones.

For fair skin tone
For those who have fair skin with pink or a little bit of peachy undertones, shades of red with a tinge of orange looks great. Apart from that, shades of coral red, crimson red or matte red will suit you well. A slight touch of gloss will add oomph to the colour and your entire look.

For olive skin tone
All those who fall under this category the good news is that almost all shades of red looks fabulous on you. However, if your skin tone is slightly towards olive or golden, pick a shade from true reds such as cranberry shades, pink-based reds, matte orange, shades of brighter reds along with yellowy reds. For evenings go for neutral shades of red. You can also go for matte and glossy look. Shades like cranberry and pink-based reds will also compliment your skin splendidly.

For dusky skin tone
For those with dusky skin tones shades of red with hints of pink will look good on you. Darker shades of red like maroon, plum, dark cherry or those with purplish hues will brighten your look. You can also experiment by mixing brighter and darker shades of reds to bring in a new colour that will also look good. A touch of gloss will do more good than harm. For darker skin tones red matte lips compliments well.
