The color red has become a hot fashion trend in the makeup world. Red lipsticks can be a bold statement or a sign of a passion and love. The idea when wearing red lipstick is to pick the right shade that is best for your skin tones. Sometimes the best way to do this is through trial and error. So, gather up your best friends and have a makeover day. Here are a few tips when trying to find the perfect shade of red for your skin tone.
Porcelain Skin Tone
If you are someone who has an ultra-light skin tone, the best type of red lipstick for you would be one that is more of a cooler red tone with hints of orange shades. Try to avoid a lipstick that has a high gloss this will not complement your skin tone. The matte shades will work the best.
Fair Skin Tone
If you are someone who has fair skin tone try a bolder darker red shade with a hint of orange will work the best. This specific shade will enhance the cheek bones and draw attention to the eyes. You may also want to wear some darker eye makeup when wearing this color to add an overall balanced look. The fair skin person will also want to avoid high gloss; matte will work the best.
Bronze or a Beige Skin Tone
A person with this type of skin tone is lucky. Almost any shade of red lipsticks will look good for this type of sun kissed skin color. The colors can range from the bright red to the dark shades of pink. Personally, I would go with a bold red lipstick with a medium gloss for a night out on the town if I had this skin tone. The combination of the bold red and gloss would definitely make someone look my way.
Light Brown Skin Tone
A person with a light brown skin tone can wear the darker shades of reds as well as the darker plum shades. The darker shades will complement the skin tone and give the wearer a radiant glow look.
Dark Skin Tone
A person with dark skin should try the deep red shades or the ones that have a hint of purple in the base color. When choosing any of these darker shades, try to find one that contains a thick gloss as a way to draw attention to your lips.
