The biggest beauty trend in Hollywood right now is the bold, red lip. It’s been around for quite some time because it looks great on everyone. No matter what your skin tone, there is a shade of red that’s perfect for you. Here’s our guide for finding the best red lipstick to complement your complexion.
Dark complexions can easily pull off the darkest and most vivid shades like brick red and magenta. Beyonce’s Superbowl ad is a great example. The perfect red lipstick for dark skin tones is Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Fire Down Below ($24).
For light skin tones go for candy apple red like Diana Agron. Notice how it enhances her skin tone? The color packs a big punch but is still wearable for every day. Some colors to try are Satin Luxe Lip Color in Classic Red ($9.99). For a soft splash of color snag a berry red lipstick like Rouge Protige True Colour & Shine Lipstick in Orchid Pink ($24.50).
Medium skin tones like Jennifer Lopez allow room to go a bit more bold in the lipstick game and have a lot of room to play around with color. For a super bold red that sets off your skin tone try a tomato red like Revlon Moon Drops Lipstick in Orange Flip ($8.99). It’s vivid but it will work if you have a light tan and will be super in for spring. During cold weather months a cranberry lipstick shade will look super sexy on your skin type. Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig ($19) will play up your skin’s warmth.
Remember to finish your makeup routine with Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray for a look that lasts all night.
Tip: If you apply lipstick, the powder your lip, and re apply the lipstick, you’ll have fewer re applications throughout the night
