The red lipstick is to beauty as the little black dress is to fashion. In my opinion it is a classic that every woman should own. I believe there is a perfect shade of red for every skin tone. I probably have “50” shades of red in my collection. The trick is, Red can be a tough shade to wear. One moment it’s on your lips, the next it’s smeared all over your face, nose and chin. So, you have to make sure that you’re wearing the best red lipstick out there . In my experience, best in this case does not mean the most expensive either.
Ultimately, it comes down to picking the right shade for you. It has to completely work with your skin tone, hair and eye colouring . These small things really do make a big difference when finding a shade of red that suits you.
For the ultimate classic cool-girl look make sure you team your new red lipstick with a natural nude eyeshadow and just a hint of mascara. Or try slicking on a Chanel black liquid eye-liner to look like you’ve just stepped out of the 1950s. Whatever look you’re choosing to go for, add classic glamour and an air of elegance to any ensemble by picking the best red lipstick for your complexion and budget.
I have an Olive skin, and what I have noticed, I can get away with wearing heavier eye make up combined with certain shades on Red Lipstick.
