Have you always considered red lipstick off limits for yourself?? Think it looks amazing on your friends and actresses in the movies but cringe when you think of trying it out? THINK AGAIN! Red lipstick is a universal classic and has yet to go out of style. This is an especially great time of year to wear red with your beautiful holiday dresses or pretty red sweaters/tops.
But, you’re not alone. Many women steer clear of any hue of dazzling red because they simply feel it is too bold and over the top for their look or their coloring. We’re ready to share some tips that will make you reconsider red!
Tip Number One: The secret lies in the rest of your face
The paler the skin, the bigger the pop. You will look like a clown if you don’t go light on the eyes and blush so take it down a notch. Skip eyeliner and go for only mascara.
Tip Number Two: Pick the right color
Plum shades will look better on you if your skin tone is pink and more yellow complexions will be flattered by warmer tones of red, with a brown base.
Tip Number Three: Line the inside of your lips
Yes, red lipstick is known for bleeding, so to combat this problem, fill in lips with lip liner first.
Tip Number Four: Keep your nails in sync
Consider non-red nail polish when your lips are sporting red. If you must go red on the nails, make sure it matches your lips.
Tip Number Five: Blend and blend some more
Did that shade of lipstick look great in the tube but simply awful (too bright/dark/etc.) when you slicked it on your lips? No problem. Makeup artists blend different shades together to create the perfect shade if they need to. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
Tip Number Six: Choose lighter shades if you are older
Our lips thin as we age and dark lips can accentuate them. To keep lips from looking too severe, try a rosy red instead.
