Choosing a red lip color is a lot like choosing from dozens of shades of red flowers. This may seem daunting, but knowing how to complement the colors is the most important aspect to finding the best shade of red, whether you are decorating a room or your complexion.
To find the red lipstick of your dreams, you must know the tone of your skin to flatter it as best as possible. Here’s how to know which colors are best for you:
- Check the color of your veins inside your wrist. If they are bluish, your skin has cooler shades. If they look green, you have warm shades.
- Look at these mirettes. The color of your eyes is a good way to measure your complexion and bring you even closer to the perfect lipstick. Blue, gray or green eyes mean cool shades while brown, amber and hazel colors mean a warm shade.
- Try the jewelery test: does silver tend to look better? Or is gold best for your skin? If money does, your skin is cooler and if you prefer gold, your skin is hot.
- How about these beautiful curls? Girls with black hair (and especially blue eyes) or brown and blond hair with ash, blue, purple or silver tones have a cold skin. Darker hair such as strawberry blonde, brown, reddish brown and black with golden, red, orange or yellow hues have warm skin.
Looking in the mirror is a way of knowing which shades will suit you best while turning to nature and that the red flowers reveal the best shades that exist.
Whether your skin is hot or cold and no matter the shade, there is a red lip for you! Although there may be hundreds of brands to choose from, as long as you stick to your nuance and complete your shades, you’ll be as radiant as the red on your lips or a beautiful red flower.
