With the holidays around the corner and winter weddings in progress, one of the fiercest makeup trends seen on runways, television, movies and award shows is red lips. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect shade of red lipstick to rock on your big day.
Everyone can wear a red lip. It is all about the shade that will complement your skin tone. If you have a warm skin tone with brown or hazel eyes, golden or reddish hair tones, the shade of red that is best for you would be a wine red. Celebrities that are in this category include Charlize Thereon and Lindsay Lohan.
If you have a cool skin tone with rosy or olive skin, blue, green, brown or hazel eyes, and your hair does not have any golden or red tones, the red lip shade that would look best is a blue based red. A celebrity who is in this category is Angelina Jolie. A great choice of lipstick would be MAC Russian Red or MAC Ruby Woo.
If you are fair skin or often describe yourself as being pale, then your choice of red is a wine red. A celebrity that you relate to is Nicole Kidman. A great choice of lipstick is NARS Tamango. If you have olive skin, then your choice of red is a coral red. Celebrities who are in this category are Kim Kardashian and Penelope Cruz.
If you have medium skin, then your choice of red is a scarlet red. Both Jessica Alba and Paris Hilton have a medium skin tone. A great lipstick choice is NARS Afghan Red. If you have a darker complexion, burgundy shades and bright red look great. Jennifer Hudson is a celebrity that wears both these colors well.
And no matter what your skin tone or coloring, everyone can wear a true red or a brick tone red. Clarins Joli Rouge or Chanel Passion are two great choices for everyone.
