Have you ever wondered what life will be without a red lipstick?  This is a phenomenal color that you wouldn’t miss seeing – be it in a wedding ceremony or a fancy dinner date. Red lip wear is essential! As girls, we all have our daily go-to make up look, but nothing beats the glam of red lip wear.  

When I think of red lips, my mind immediately race on glamour, grace, elegance & girly. No matter what skin tone you are, the color red is subtle and fashionable – but first you have to be willing to play by the rule of beauty! Allow me to inspire you …

Get inspired: #1 Girls with pale/fair skin are advised to go for darker red shades. I’d say a touch of raspberry or cranberry tint. It gives a more playful and mysterious looks!

My picks → • Chanel Rouge Allure Intense Long in Pirate • MAC Matte lipstick in Rebel

Get inspired: #2 Those with a neutral/ medium skin tone should give their preferences to classic red. It brings back the retro times through your confidence!

My picks → • Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Velvet Cherry • MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo

Here I’m wearing ‘Ruby Woo’

Get inspired: # 3 Women with olive or darker skin tones are advised to pick deep red, burgundy, brick/fiery orange-red shades. Unlike your fair girlfriends, you should understand clearly on the blue undertones – it turns pink on olive-toned skin.

My picks → • NYX Slim Pencil in Plush • Bobbi Brown Luxe Lipcolor in Sunset Orange

As for me, I’m a medium with caramel toned-skin. When I started having the interest in the make up world, I learnt more on undertone (I’ll write about it on an upcoming article) to pick the right choice of color for me. I am a huge fan of MAC cosmetics products – especially their matte lipsticks! First I developed desirable addiction on the Retro Matte in Ruby Woo and slowly I explored into a much deeper shade – Matte in Russian Red.

Some may say that red is not for all or that certain skin tone shouldn’t wear red lipsticks. That’s entirely a taboo! Remember girls, anyone can pull off a red lipstick – no matter who you are or what skin tone type you have. That’s the beauty of make-up, to design you beautifully!
