Classic Hollywood Red Lips Tutorial
Classic red lipstick for the makeup bag is an essential part of the makeup bag. Even more important for the holiday season. A classic red colour can jazz up any makeup look. Especially if you’re short on time just add a flick to your eye liner and you’re good to go. To jazz it up for the evening just add a high gloss over your red lipstick. Simple.
The key to finding the perfect red lip colour is to work out your skin tone. Blue based red lipstick will suit fairer skin tones and gold or yellow based red lipstick will suit olive to darker tones. Other than that the best way to finding the perfect red lipstick is try before you buy. And almost all makeup outlets will have a tester available for you.
Personally I would recommend trying them out as the wrong toned red can make your teeth stand out and not for the best of reasons. Yellow or gold based lipsticks can make your teeth look even more yellow! Unless you’ve had then whitened of course. Whereas blue based red lipstick will make your teeth look whiter. Or rather not so yellow. So you really do have to try on red lipsticks. But once you find the perfect one, you won’t be seen without it.
