The Perfect Red Lip

Lip Stick Red 2

Colour Riche Lip Colour in British Red shown above.

A red lip can sometimes be intimidating to us ladies. I can assure you it’s not my go to look but on the other hand, it’s super fun to play with a bold lip and a good toned red can make you feel pretty powerful. There are basically three tones when it comes to a red lip: orange, blue and pink. The general rule is as follows:

Warm Skin Undertones – Orange Tones

Cool Skin Undertones – Blue and Pink Tones

With that said, if you a warm toned chick who wants to wear a red lip with a pink or blue tone don’t let me stop you. I think the best rule is if you like it…. wear it.

Also a quick side note, blue tones will make your teeth look whiter and brighter while an orange tone will tend to have the opposite effect.Red Lip Tones
