“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kickass red lipstick.” – Gwyneth Paltrow
If red lipstick says anything, it’s instant sex-appeal. It’s been the hallmark color of Hollywood celebrities, fashion models, and others for a long, long time. However, wearing red lipstick isn’t necessarily going to do the trick for you unless you know how to wear it.
Red lipstick is bold, beautiful, and makes a statement. Below are a few tips from Amber Dazzle.
Consider Lighting If you’re going to be outside during the day, you’ll want to go with a soft, sheer shade of red. For indoors or night-time activities – go bold. Your features will stand out better.
What Will You be Wearing?
Your lipstick needs to fit your overall look for the day/night. A bold red lipstick can serve very well as a splash of color with a black or white ensemble. However, if you’re going to be wearing colors, particularly other bright, vibrant hues, red lipstick might be too chaotic.
Do You Know Which Tone Goes Best with Your Skin?
Red lipstick, much like our skin tones, comes in many shades. Make sure the red you’re using goes with yours. A bold, bright red can look fantastic against darker skin tones. If you’re tan, whether naturally or thanks to a little time in the sun, an orangey-red will complement your skin tone beautifully.
Be Sure Your Liner Matches Your Lipstick Perfectly
Red can be a finnicky color. If you use lip liner and it doesn’t match your shade of lipstick perfectly, you’re going to end up with a two-tone effect that might look odd. If you can’t find a lip liner that matches your lipstick, use one that’s close to the natural color of your lips instead. Barring that, skip lip liner altogether.
