Dramatic red lips are popping with bold, bright and sassy shades right now. Since a red lip is going to be the main facial focal point, remember that applying a moisture rich balm prior to putting on the red is what is going to make you the most kissable.
Since red hot lips can be just the touch that takes a look to the next level, here are some tips to rocking the red.
What red is MY red?
- Fair Skin: take a backseat to bolder reds and grab a shade with a more coral hue or true reds. YSL- Rouge Pur Couture SPF15
- Medium Skin: stick to true reds and reds that have a pinker, cranberry-like shade. Sephora Collection- Rouge Cream Lipstick or Kat Von D Underage Red (bright crimson)
- Tan/Dark Skin: go for the rich deeper reds or vibrant bright red. MAC – Ruby Woo or NARS- Afghan Red (satin garnet) or Jungle Red (semi matte bright red)
Matte or Gloss?
Dab a touch of gloss in the center of your bottom lip. Don’t gloss your entire lip, this will lead to your lip-color bleeding.
