Red lipstick is a bold, classic makeup look that likes to make its way to the spotlight especially during the holiday season, special occasions, and nights out. When it comes to wearing red, there shouldn’t be any timidness, but a bold, sexy confidence that lies beneath your look. Whatever the occasion, find the red that matches your skin tone with these simple tricks.
Those with fair skin will find their red lipstick match in lipsticks with cool undertones such as Tom Ford’s Lip Color in Federico and Dior Rouge Dior Couture Lip Colour in Rouge Favori.
Medium, golden complexions enjoy a red with deep berry tints like NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Luxembourg. Medium complexions are easily matched with a classic red, such as Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme in Goddess.
Complexions with yellow undertones such as those with olive skin can indulge in deep wine reds such as Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Mandore for a sultry look or turn tangerine-tinted Iman Cosmetics Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick in Hot for a sunny glow.
Fenty Beauty’s Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored was made for all skin types, but it thrives on those with deep tan complexions, especially those with caramel undertones.
Opaque, blue-based reds such as MAC’s Ruby Woo pairs gorgeously dark caramel complexions.
