If you’re planning to wear a red lipstick at any time of the day, you should take note of these things:
THE LIGHTING: There are different shades of red lipsticks you should use for the day. During the day pick a softer sheerer shade of red and in the evenings you should go bolder so that your features stand out.

During the day: No 4, 5 or 6

At Night: No 7,8 or 9

LIP SHAPE: Consider your lip shape, not all red lipsticks would fit your lip. Try different shades to know which fits you better. P.s Try to avoid deep red if you have thin lips.

SKIN TONE:ย Choosing the right red lipstick for your skin tone is very important. If you have a warm undertone always look for reds with yellow undertones or orange reds and if you have cool undertone, look for reds with blue undertone or pink reds. The best thing to do is experiment with some red lipsticks and stick to the ones that look good on you.

  1. This is a nice post ! I tell people Red lipstick ๐Ÿ’„ is definitely a must have for every lady ! For me I wear red lipsticks for night out dates or parties ๐ŸŽ‰ and for special occasions . My favourite are the blue based red lipstick as it suit my colour tone . Wearing red lipstick on my Little Black dress ๐Ÿ‘— is definitely one of my favourite and also with a white statement outfit with a sultry eye look . My fav are Mac ruby woo and Fenty beauty lip paint.

  2. I feel different shades of red can be more or less flattering depending on skin tone and contour. But overall I think red is one of the most popular shades of lipstick and have a historical fashion statement attached to the look.

  3. I don’t wear makeup very often, and I don’t think I’ve every been brave enough to wear red! It just seems so bold that you need to get it right – and I had no idea what I was doing. Even when I get my makeup done by a professional they always put me in pink – maybe it’s time to get BOLD! Thanks for the great tips ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Love red lipstick but I have trouble trying to figure out if it really goes with skin tone. Looking at the examples you provided here as a guide,Iโ€™m going to give it another shot! Nice post!

  5. So fun!! I am basically a chapstick girl so it is awesome to be inspired to step outside my comfort zone!

  6. Great post! I’m a red lipstick sister! For me, I feel dull and like I look like I’m under the weather without a bright lipstick so I wear it almost every day. So this really resonates! I can also see why some people would not care for it. Its kind of like dark chocolate… not everyone goes for it. But I do!

  7. I’m so addicted to red lipstick now! I have all the shades. I even want to take new business pics with my red lips. Lol It just perks up any look, especially when I have very little makeup on and rushing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Previously, I had never been a fan of a red lip because I felt they always looked weird on me. That is, until I found my perfect shade of red. Now i feel like everyone should have a red lip in their arsenal JUST IN CASE.
