Don’t expect to pull it off from the first time, maybe it will take you years to find the perfect red lipstick for you, but never give up!
Different skin tone – different lipstick tone
When you want to find the perfect red color for your lips, first you need to figure out which tone goes best with your skin type. Try as many red tones as you can, before you choose which lipstick looks best on you. Usually women with lighter skin should go with true hot red colors, while women with medium dark skin should choose red lipstick with pink or orange undertone. When it comes to women with dark skin, they should go with dark red, purple or wine undertones. If you want to find out which red lipstick goes best with your skin tone, maybe you can consult a professional make-up specialist, who for sure can help you to find the best solution.
Prepare the lips
One night before a special event where you plan to wear a red lipstick, prepare your lips by doing a lips peeling. Order a special lips peeling product or search the internet for a homemade recipe. This step is crucial, because it will remove the dead skin off your lips and it will make them softer. Overall it is good for your lips health, but also it will make the process of applying the lipstick easier.
Make your red lipstick last longer
Many experts suggest that before you put on the red lipstick, it is better to apply lip liner on the entire lips not only on the edges. These may result with a slightly different shade of red but the lipstick will last longer, even if you are eating, drinking or even kissing someone.
Experiment with your mistakes
If you have bought a wrong shade of red that looks ridiculous on you, that doesn’t mean that you can’t get the best out of your money. Combine it with another shade of red or other undertones to find the perfect shade of red for you. Apply few layers of different shades and maybe you can find the best solution.
As we said earlier even if you fail don’t give up, this is one of the toughest things for all woman when it comes to makeup.
Watch out with your makeup
Because the red lipstick is very powerful and it will gather the attention, your makeup should be minimal. Gently apply rouge on your cheeks and accentuate your eyes by applying a little bit of mascara, eyeliner and a softer eyeshade.
