All women, at one point, are a bit curious as to how they would look in red lipstick. Even if you have tried to pull off red lipstick and were out of luck, it is probably because you weren’t wearing the right shade of red. We all have different skin tones, therefore we all need to wear a different hue of red lipstick. Here is a mini guide as to how you should choose your perfect shade of red.

Women with Fair Skin

Women with lighter skin tones will look best wearing more coral-y reds

A neat tidbit on this lipstick color is that it has been around since the 50’s and has grown in popularity as time has passed. 🙂

Women with Medium Skin

Ladies who have that sun-kissed skin are able to choose anything from a true red to a pinky-cranberry shade. These will work great with your golden undertones.

Women with Dark Skin

 Women with dark skin will want to stick with deep, rich colors like burgundy; a super bright red could look too harsh.
