Red. How can one colour be so confusing?
Red is one of those colours that is extraordinarily tricky to pull off as there are different shades that go with different skin tones. I’ve gone through a whole load of reds (which I will be discussing below) to find THEE perfect shade for me and what I will say is, regardless of what you have heard, red DOES suit all skintones, it’s just about finding the right colour for you!
|Reds for all skin tones!|
1. Keep the rest of your makeup subtle when wearing red lipstick. For daytime, go for natural make-up and for night, a smoky all always does the trick!
2. Lip liner is essential to stop colour bleeding. Apply all over your lip to create a base for the colour.
3. Dot a little highlighter onto your cupid’s bow, just above your top lip: it’ll make your lips look fuller.
4. FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL, PLEASE PLEASE EXFOLIATE YOUR LIPS. I have seen too many women wearing bright reds with their lips looking as if they’ve been used on a grater; dead skin just everywhere. It is not attractive so scrub up and moisturize!

If you have medium skin, you can wear most colours; a classic true tone such as pillar-box red would be most ideal. The vibrant shade looks amazing on medium complexions!
