Besides being sexy, red-lipstick is a real must-have for women. It is sexy and attracts all the looks…it acts like a “man magnet”. The only thing you need to be careful with is what shade fits you best and how to wear it, according to your skin tone.
Rihanna, Sienna Miller or Eva Longoria are just a few of female representatives that proudly wear red-lipstick, almost every occasion. Wearing it in the right way won’t be tricky anymore once you consider our tips and tricks. Also, take a look at our beauty buys, maybe you get inspired.
Black skin – or medium black skin tone
Rihanna goes for a red lipstick that stands out against her skin tone but still complements it. The key is a full red, a “bloody” red colour. Look for a “blueish” tone, rather than an orange one.
Olive skin – medium toned skin
Eva Longoria like the shades of dark red better than the shinny, extravagant ones. She is into sexy, but classy reds. Deep mahogany reds complement your skin tone perfectly.
Medium to pale white skin tone
Sienna Miller, our pick for today’s article, wears any colour of red lipstick she wants. Colour…well…rather shade! Our suggestion is to go for hot vibrant red shades, the work well with lighter skin tones.
