It’s safe to say most of us don’t wear red lips on a regular basis perhaps ‘cos red is such a bold notice-me-color and we’re slightly afraid of how it looks on us?Well,I say once in a while it’s good to go out of your element and try something different.Red lipsticks make such a strong statement and exudes confidence so whether you like yours matte,glossy or sheer,or even if you don’t wear red lipstick @ all,I urge you to start doing so especially this time of the year as it’s the perfect season to try colourful trends.Anyone can wear red lips and there is a shade for everyone.You just have to keep searching for that one true colour that matches your skin perfectly.
If you have fair skin like Dita Von Teese pick a red lip shade that’s coral/orange based.Cool based reds looks stunning on fair skin.Example of such lipstick is Mac’s Lady Danger.
For medium/olive skin tones like Kim Kardashian,try red-cranberry shades(with a hint of pink.)These colours are perfect for your golden undertones.Clinique Colour Surge Butter Shine in Cranberry Cream is a great example.
Dark skin tones look beautiful with deep,rich colors like wine/burgundy,plums or reds with a slight hint of gold as seen on Kelly Rowland.Avoid light shades of red.Check out Revlon’s Alarm lipstick with swatch here .
Here are some tips that’ll help you pull off the fierce red lipstick trend:
TIPS :*Feel free to ask for assistance at the beauty counter.Most beauty advisors are willing to help you pick the right shade and help you with questions about your skin undertones.
*Apply a bit of concealer to erase out your natural lip colour so that the true shade of your red lipstick shines through and this also helps the lipstick to last longer.
*Use a natural shade pencil liner to define and fill in your lips.Next,apply lipstick,blot and re-apply.This prevents(any)lipstick from getting on your teeth.
*Apply with a lip brush for an even application.
*Keep your eye and face makeup simple/toned down so that the focus is on the lips.
*If you find yourself to be in between shades(yes that happens),anything goes most of the time.Try creating your own shade by mixing two red lippies with different tones together to get your own unique shade.
*False-lashes+Red lips=sexy.Pair your red lipstick with some(dramatic) false lashes for that sexy glam look.
Doll Notes:As with any lipstick,make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized before application.You can also dust translucent powder after applying lipstick to hold the color in place.If you can pull off red lips everyday,go for it!! You can never go wrong with that:)
