Choosing A Red Lipstick To Match Your Skin Tone

Choosing A Red Lipstick To Match Your Skin Tone

The red lipstick is a cosmetic look that has stood the test of time. From the time of Cleopatra and her use of crushed bugs to create the illusion of red lips to modern day designer lipsticks; the red lipstick remains an age long trend. Choosing the right shade of red lipstick could be a bit of a struggle. Here is what to consider before choosing a red lipstick.

Exfoliate Your Lips

According to a 2010 study by scientists, men are more fixated on a woman when she wears red lipstick. Since Red screams attention, it is important that it looks perfect. Exfoliate with a Scrub to achieve a smooth finish.

Determine your skin Undertone

Your skin’s undertone is different from your complexion. Your skin undertone is the natural color underneath the surface of your skin. There are Cool, Warm, and Neutral skin undertones. Having a proper grasp of your skin undertone is the first step to choosing the right red lipstick for you.

A helpful tip for determining your skin undertone is to check the color of your veins. Greenish veins indicate a warm undertone, blue or purplish looking veins indicate a cool undertone while Colourless veins indicate a neutral undertone.
