Which Shade Of RED Lipstick Can You Rock Best?

We all want to be able to pull of a red lipstick, but not all of us suit every shade of red.

Here's a few simple steps on how to find the right shade of red for you.

If your skin has cool undertones, then you will need a red that lipstick that also has cool undertones.
If your skin has warm undertones, then you will need a red lipstick that also has warm undertones.
It's that simple.

Here is a little trick on how to find out whether you have cool or warm undertones.

1. Check your veins on your wrist. If they are blue, you have cool undertones. If they are green, you have warm. 
2. What colour jewellery do you suit? If you suit silver, you have cool undertones, if you suit gold, you have warm.

If you find that your veins are in between or a mix of blue/green & you suit both silver & gold jewellery,
 then you can wear any shade of lipstick.

Luckily I'm in between & can wear any shade of red.

1st colour has more cool undertones, middles is in between & the last one has warm.
I know the last one doesn't really look really red, but it's because most "warm" lipsticks have an orangey undertone.

They are also going to look different on picture as well so this isn't going to be 100% accurate. So when buying a red lipstick from a store, ask one of the members of staff to tell you which red lipstick have which undertones so you can find one to suit your skin tone.

Hope this has helped

Have fun rocking the red lip! ;)
