Delicious Red Lips!

So a friend of mine recently asked me how to pick a red lipstick that was right for her skin tone. You know how certain colored clothes look good against your skin tone? Well it is the same with lipstick!

To pick a perfect lipstick for  you, you need to know a few things:

First, you need to know your skin tone-are you light or dark? Cool or warm?
I have read that a trick to figuring this out is to stand in front of a mirror in as natural light as possible holding a piece of white paper right below your face. Close your eyes for a moment. When you open them, note the thing you notice first. If it was your face, you have cool undertones; if it was the paper, you have warm undertones. Also you can refer to the old seasonal colors chart, Winters and Summers have cool undertones and Autumns and Springs have warm undertones. Those with cool tones will look best in jewel tones, and warm toned skin will look best in earthy, golden hued tones-think autumn foliage. Most makeup counters should be able to help you with this!

Second, you will need to know the different undertones of red lipstick-either a blue red or an orange/brown red.

An example of a blue red would be a crimson red or a red that is verging on hot pink such as Little Goddess Liptoxyl in Sangria or Temptress and Little Goddess Lip Rouge in Chili!

   An example of an orange/brown red would be a brick or coral red such as Little Goddess Lip Rouge in Spicy.

So basically, if your complexion is on the cooler side then try cherry reds, crimson, plum and burgundy and if you are on the warmer side, look for shades of red with a brown base such as deep orange, golden red and coral. 

Most importantly-have fun and try them on!!

A lipstick that is labeled a "true red" such as Little Goddess Lip Rouge in Vegas, would most likely fall into the warm skin tone category!


When wearing red lipsticks, please make sure to use lipliner as red lipstick bleeds like no other!
