The Right Red
All women can wear red lipstick no matter what shape their lips are or what coloring they have. For red-shy women, try one that's super sheer, like a sheer lipstick or a stain. I have one from MAC that's a slimshine called Urgent! It's great! For all-out glamour, choose a classic, cream-finish lipstick. For help choosing the right shade of red:
Fair complexions- flattered by cool reds (like cherry or the color of a red rose).
Redheads- looks great wearing warm reds (like tomato or brick).
Medium or olive skin- looks best with classic true reds (like apple).
Dark skin- can pull off deep reds with ease.
Good luck on your search for your red lips! Remember if you wear red, don't go crazy with the eyes for every day wear. Pick one or the other.
