Makeup: The Perfect Red Hue

If you are constantly searching for the right red lipstick shade it is important to remember that it comes down to skin tone. Here are some quick rules to follow to make the choice a little easier;

Fair Skin types: opt for blue based reds, the bolder the better. A contrast always works best on paler skin like a deep red or burgundy.

Medium skin types: if you have a medium skin tone choose berry colours like cherry red. Soft nudes also look good against the skin.
Olive Skin types: should go for orange based reds, think fire engine red or bright pop colour like burnt orange.
Dark Skin Types: look no further than a purple based red, these look incredible against dark skin.
