Red lipstick is arguably the most powerful product in your makeup bag. It has the ability to bring instant life to your face and ensemble. Just like wearing a colorful handbag or pair of shoes, vibrant red lips can be a major statement-making accessory.
From cool to warm shades, there is a hue for every skin tone. If you have fair skin, stick to blue-based colors that are true reds. Avoid shades that are too orange or pink. Deep wines, mauves and roses with a hint of orange work best against medium skin tones. When it comes to dark skin tones, almost any type of red works--opt for darker hues like plum and stay away from anything that looks too pink.
