How to Wear Red Lipstick for a Fresh, of the Moment Look

Find A Red Lipstick For Your Skin Tone
Skin tone, not hair color, should determine which red lipstick looks the best on you. The newest crop of red lipsticks are sheer, which makes them easy to work with and a must for every woman's makeup arsenal. The modern woman should think of red lips as the beauty equivalent of the LBD (little black dress). A few tips for finding the perfect red lipstick for your skin tone. Try on red lipsticks in our virtual makeup studio.

Skin with yellow undetones looks best in orangey-red lipsticks or red lipsticks with a golden base. If you have an ultra milky complexion that rivals Snow White, chances are you also have cool, rosy undertones. As a general rule, pinkish skin calls for a red lipstick that is blue-based.

Warm up red lipstick with a touch of golden gloss, applied to the center of your lower lip. For a fresh, youthful take on the red lips trend, forgo lip liner and apply the color with a lip brush, instead of applying it directly from the tube. To tone down the color, apply it to the back of your hand first (but makeup sure you have plenty of makeup remover on hand as it's difficult to remove red lipstick).

I like how this takes skin tone into consideration. I'm going to have to use some of these tips -- every time I try to rock red lipstick, I just can't seem to pull it off. Maybe I'm not using the right shades for my skin tone? This comment has been removed.

Try using a lip liner as a base! It'll help the color stick better :D This comment has been removed.

How do you keep the lipstick from smudging off like an hour later? Mine never seems to stay on :/ This comment has been removed.
