HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR PERFECT RED
How many times have you spotted someone wearing that perfect red lip and wished you could feel as confident wearing red? Or wished you’d be able to pick out a shade that’s right for you? It can seem so challenging figuring out what is suitable for you but it doesn’t have to be that way. I recently decided to go on a search for my red lipstick. Here are a few steps that may help you choose your perfect red lip color.
To start, I decided on my shade based on my skin tone. If you want to wear a red color that is opposite to your skin tone, make sure the rest of your makeup matches that tone, otherwise the overall look will be very unbalanced.
Find your skin tone by checking your wrists. Green veins are found on warm undertones, blue veins are found on cool undertones, and a combination of both are found on neutral undertones. You’ll find that names may be similar across different brands.
1.For warm reds look for names that include orange, coral, copper gold, sunset, etc
(Be careful if your teeth are not white, a warm red will give teeth a more yellow appearance)
2. With cool tones choose anything with a blue undertone, pink or plum. Look for names that include raspberry, burgundy, rose, berry, crimson, etc
3. Neutral skin undertone allow you to choose most shades and can pull off muted red tones
2. Match the depth in the color you want. Keep in mind that if the red color has little depth it might not show up and too much contrast will look harsh on the face. Try a few different hues in front of a mirror, also step away a bit to see it in the distance. Below is a list of colors best suited on specific skin tones. Use it as a guide until you become more confident in choosing colors .
