NYFW 2011 was full of fabulous winter fashions but red lipstick was the most prominent of makeup trends. From Gucci to Diane Von Furstenburg , Vivianne Westwood to Milly reds ruled the runway.
Daring, classic, romantic yet bold there is a perfect red lipstick on the market that suits all skin tones. Resisting reds? I will guide you through the makeup counter maze to help you find the perfect red.
When shopping for the right red, ask yourself 2 important questions. What is your preferred lipstick texture; Matte, glossy or creamy. What color pay-off do you desire; Bright and bold, soft stain or an opaque wash of color?
If you’re a fair skin sista opt for a true red with a cherry pink to red undertone. Olive skin, try a blue based red that will stand out against your radiant complexion. Medium brown skin tones should try a lipstick with an orange value to it’s undertone, this shade will pop against beautiful brown skin. Deep chocolate skin tones should try a red with a deep pink saturation to its base tone.
