Ever wonder why some red work and why some don’t on your lips? Well the answer is easy everyone has the right shade of red for them and in the following sentences you will see how to find the right red that will suit you.
If you have Fair Skin and Light Hair:
Try going for reds with a yellow or orange base. The lighter tones will compliment your hair color and stand out better on your lips. If you can’t tell the base of a lipstick go ahead and ask someone at the makeup counter at any beauty store they will help you out.
If You Have Darker Skin and Darker Hair:
Go for a blue base. There are a lot of great blue based reds out there that will look amazing on you. The blue base is necessary because you will need more color in order for it not to look non-existent on your face.
Methods that work for everyone else:
Light skin and dark hair? Dark skin and light hair? These tend to trick people even more so here is some quick tips on finding your perfect shade of red. Honestly this works on the other two as well, but eh we find what we recommended before does work on those type of people.
If your veins are green and you look best in gold then a red with a yellow or golden base works best.
If your veins are blue and you look best in silver go with a blue based red lip stick.
If you have neutral tones or an olive complexion go with a red with neutral tones in it.
